Riot Games has announced that they are collaborating with sneaker customization brand, SBTG Studios to create limited-run Wild Rift sneakers as a celebration for the launch of the mobile game. The partnership aims to also celebrate the synergy of fashion and gaming.
The SBTG team developed their take on the Wild Rift sneakers through the lens of fashion and streetwear, with pairs customized and personalized for select gaming partners across Southeast Asia.
This collaboration celebrates the discipline of practice which is integral in both the worlds of sneaker customization and gaming, as the beautifully embroidered energetic pattern on the Air Force 1 swoosh features a tiger camouflage which the SBTG team has been painting for more than a decade, now in the game’s official colors.
Said SBTG founder, Mr.Sabotage, who is an internationally renowned figure within streetwear and design.
The sneaker design uses the Nike Air Force 1 as the base of the creation. Using the game’s blue, gold, and white color scheme. The standard Air Force 1 tongue tags are replaced with a custom Wild Rift Logo. Recipients’ names were hand-stenciled to the sides of the shoes, as were the leather SBTG Deubré tags on the laces.
We’re thrilled to have partnered with an incredible local artist like SBTG on this project. Unique collaborations are a great way to share Wild Rift with new audiences in Southeast Asia. We are looking forward to many more!
Said Justin Hulog, General Manager for Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau, Riot Games.
