Adidas Originals sets yet another example for the “Fashion meets Hollywood” (not that one can exist without the other!). The globally popular street-wear brand has launched two pairs of exclusively designed sneakers to commemorate the movie launch of Hellboy II- The Golden Army. The sneakers are part of Adidas’s Fall/Winter Collection 2008 and are available in limited editions.

The designs are individually called the Forum Mid-Golden Army and the Stan Mid-Hellboy.

The Forum Mid-Golden Army is a striking combination of gold, black and white with Hellboy written across the Velcro strap. It also features an image of Ron Perlman as the titular demonic villain on the outsole and the foot-bed. The Stan Mid-Hellboy has motifs and themes from Dark Horse Comics & Mike Mignola. The shoe is all-black with “Hellboy” printed on the side in red. It also has some detailing in the inner and outer sole. Even the shoe boxes are specially designed with designer wrapping material making for a true collector’s delight.

While 5000 pairs of the Forum Mid-Golden Army have been released at select outlets (including partner stores), the Stan Mid-Hellboy is limited to only 1000 pairs worldwide and will be made available exclusively at Adidas Originals stores. The sneakers are priced at $100/€100 for the Forum Mid-Golden Army and $150/€150 for the Stan Mid-Hellboy.
