Alistar may be an E-Tier pick in League of Legends Season 11, but we’re sure 2021—the year of the Ox—will be their year. Show support for your local minotaur support with this awesome take on the ZX 420 (ignite it) from Adidas Originals.
While these aren’t officially tied in with League of Legends,they are statement sneakers that we feel cannot be overlooked. Most noticeable is the cow-print pony hair. A beautiful pattern and texture, these would pair best with a minimalist outfit, allowing the sneakers to really pull focus. A crisp white emphasizes the organic tan of the upper,
and traditional Lush Red highlights help frame the cow print, keeping it from feeling too over-the-top. A further nod to the Year of the Ox is the cheeky golden ring looped into the tongue. Any good bull (or minotaur) can use this classic look.
Much like Mobi-boots, the ZX 420 silhouette was made for movement; a more athletic/runner shoe than many from the 80s. It features Adidas’s Torsion technology, which gives superior support and comfort across uneven ground and in high-impact. Are we saying take these shoes out running? Definitely not. But do wear them as your Alistar roams to help mid against that pesky OP Aniva.
If you’re looking to recall and pick up these boots, you’ll want to check the Adidas Original’s Store on January 31st. While they’ll only set you back around $120, you should expect them to be in very limited quantity.
