Koio Pay Their Debts With Their “Rep Realm” Contribution for ‘Game of Thrones’
A pair of sneakers fit for a Kingslayer
We may have to wait at least at a year before we get new episodes of Game of Thrones now that HBO’s epic has finished its seventh season, but before we say goodbye, we get one the last contribution to the “Rep the Realm” campaign courtesy of Koio. The high-end sneaker-maker decided to pay homage to Jaime Lannister, one of the show’s most fascinating characters, with a pair of gold kicks that reference the Kingslayer’s precious metal hand.
Koio was started with the goal of finding the best sneaker manufacturer in the world, and these leather, Italian-made beauties show what the best can do. Up top is gold pebble grain leather, which combines with a gold metallic sole. Then there’s the details of a reproduction of Jaime’s hand on the laces and his family’s sigil on the back of the shoes And given that the Lannisters are low-key style gods (shout to Tywin Lannister’s leather apron), it’s a fitting tirbute .
Watch a video about Koio’s participation in “Rep the Realm” above and be sure to check out previous “Rep the Realm” contributions from Carrots, Dee & Ricky, V/SUAL, Alife, Billionaire Boys Club and 40s & Shorties.
