“When we started designing young Star-Lord, we thought it would be fitting he’d wear a pair of Adidas. I believe them to be iconic to that era. Afterwards the team started saying how great it would be if we’d actually get to make a real pair. Well, lo and behold, our creative director pitched the idea to Marvel and they loved it and the rest is history.”

Tony Holmes, senior product manager at Adidas spoke about the inspiration behind the designs:

“When talking with the Marvel team and hearing about the game what was the game about. We thought we could bring the characters to life through footwear with the inspiration of the characters incorporated in the shoes. We choose the footwear models that we thought fit the characters attitude.”

The six pieces within the collection are designed to suit Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot, Drax and Gamora and each of their different play styles in game, with Star-Lord receiving two different designs. The collection will be available 2022.
