Adidas is releasing two pairs of limited edition Hellboy sneakers to coincide with the release of the Hellboy II: The Golden Army.
“Adidas Originals created a jaw-dropping statement with the Stan Mid – Hellboy in cooperation with Dark Horse Comics & Mike Mignola. The black shoe has the image of Hellboy printed on its side in red and extra details on the inner and outer sole, like a collection of three extra footbeds, plus lace jewels, a mini-comic and unique tongue branding.”
“The Forum Mid-Golden Army takes the court standard and mixes the appropriate trio of gold, black and white with Hellboy lettering across the Velcro strap, with an image of Ron Perlman as the titular demonic anti-hero on the outsole and footbed.”
Both the Forum Mid-Golden Army and the Stan Mid-Hellboy come in a specially designed shoe box and different tissue wrappings, making them true collector pieces. The shoes will both be released worldwide in a limited edition. A total of 5,000 pairs of the Forum Mid-Golden Army will be sold in adidas Originals stores and selected partner stores. 1,000 pairs only of Stan Mid-Hellboy will be available exclusively in adidas Originals stores. Retail prices will be $100 for the Forum Mid-Golden Army and $150 for the Stan Mid-Hellboy.
