While Marvel’s comics have been entertaining people for generations, the record-breaking blockbuster hit Avengers: Endgame shows how big the cult fan base is. To celebrate the release of the epic sequel, the iconic comic brand is teaming up with Adidas to launch a limited-edition collection of basketball sneakers.

Inspired by Marvel superheroes, the “Heroes Among Us” Collection uses the sneaker styles of some of its most heroic signature athletes – James Harden, Damian Lillard, John Wall, Candace Parker and Tracy McGrady – to create a six-sneaker collection.

The Dame 5 takes on The Black Panther, the Harden Vol 3 takes on Iron Man, the N3XT L3V3L takes on Captain America, the Pro Vision takes on Captain Marvel, the T-Mac 1 takes on Nick Fury, and the Marquee Boost takes on Thor.

Each sneaker riffs on the colour palette of each superhero’s costume and comes packaged inside a collector’s edition Marvel shoebox. This is definitely the kind you hold on to.

Each sneaker is available in men’s sizes from US$110 (HK$860) while the Black Panther Dame 5, Iron Man Harden Vol 3, and Captain Marvel Pro Vision are available in children’s sizes from US$90 (HK$700). They are available now in the US on the Adidas online shop, but details have yet to be given for a Hong Kong release.

Whether you are a diehard fan of Marvel comics and movies, a fan of basketball and the explosive players that make the game exciting, or both, you will be hard-pressed to find cooler sneakers to add to your collection.
