They’re by Adidas. They have the Halo logo on them. They are black, which is definitely the best colour choice for an item of clothing aimed at teenage males who are into Halo. It’s quite subtly done, but chances are you still wouldn’t really want people to see you wearing them.
Here they are:
It’s the Adidas Gil II Zero Halo Sneaker, which Adidas is stupidly – or perhaps very wisely – only making 100 of. Presumably it’s actually making 200 of them – 100 left ones and 100 right ones. They don’t go into that much detail in the press release.
They’re only $110 and will no doubt be endlessly traded on eBay between collectors of video game merchandise, rather than ever being worn.
