Footwear brand Akedo and UK online retailer Zavvi have partnered once again for a new collection of limited-edition sneakers based on the popular video games Borderlands 3 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
The collection consists of two high-top trainers featuring various motifs from the games covering one side of the shoe, with the other side displaying their iconic logos.
The Borderlands 3 trainers include striking white prints on a black base, while the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla sneakers sport blue graphics on a white backdrop.
Handmade and customized for every order, both shoes are made from high-quality materials and boast classic lace-up fastening and rubber toe caps.

This isn’t the first time Akedo and Zavvi have released a sneaker collection based on the two video game franchises. Back in August 2020, the two companies teamed up for the first time for a footwear range consisting of two high tops inspired by Borderlands and Assassin’s Creed. Only 100 pairs per design were made available at that time and both designs sold out quickly.

It’s not clear how many pairs of the new trainers will be up for sale, but both the Borderlands 3 and the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla shoes will be exclusively available on Zavvi.com on January 29th starting at 12 p.m. GMT (7 a.m. ET).

Other pop culture-inspired shoes previously released by Akedo and Zavvi were based on the DC character Wonder Woman and the action-adventure-thriller film series Jaws.
Released in September 2019, Borderlands is an action role-playing first-person shooter video game developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games. It is a sequel to 2012’s Borderlands 2, and the fourth entry in the main Borderlands series, following 2014’s Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, meanwhile, is the twelfth major installment and the twenty-second release in the Assassin’s Creed action RPG series. It was released in November 2020 and was developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft.
