What you need to know

  • Xbox and popular shoe company adidas announced a partnership as part of the Xbox 20th Anniversary celebration.
  • On Tuesday, the companies revealed the latest pair of shoes to emerge from the partnership, which are available to purchase now.
  • The adidas Xbox Forum Tech Boost shoes are decked out in Xbox's iconic black and green colorway, with Xbox and adidas logos both.
  • The limited-edition shoes aren't cheap at $140, but they're available now to interested fans and collectors.

It's not uncommon for companies to announce partnerships and collaborations on products and services, and gaming companies are especially susceptible to the temptation. Sometimes unexpected announcements are made, such as the partnership between Xbox and legendary shoe company adidas. Revealed as part of the Xbox 20th Anniversary, adidas has made pairs of exclusive Xbox-themed shoes. On Tuesday, the unique Xbox Forum Tech Boost shoes went on sale for any interested fan or collector to purchase.

The shoes don black and Xbox green, and are adorned with adidas, Xbox, and Xbox 20th Anniversary logos on the outside and the soles. They certainly look the part, and are perfectly themed to join the ongoing celebration of two decades, especially as we near the end of the year. It's unclear how long these shoes will be sold for, but they're almost certainly limited edition and won't be produced forever.

Will these adidas Xbox shoes improve your performance while playing the best Xbox games? Probably not, and they're also relatively expensive to pick up. Still, these may be a great pair of shoes for dedicated Xbox fans or collectors (of both Xbox gear and adidas shoes). At the very least, they'll look great next to the Xbox Mini Fridge.
