Yes, we too let out a collective snort upon hearing that trainer group Supra was to create a tribute shoe for The Hunger Games. What we'd expected were a set of Katniss-embossed pumps with flaming velcro tabs. What we got was something altogether different.
The third instalment in Supra's Hunger Games series, the District 13 is a bold, militant reworking of the Skytop IV. The trademark SUPRATUF upper has been kitted out with a carbon fibre texture, while a "District 13" logo is emblazoned on the tongue.
The most striking element is undoubtedly the Mockingjay wings - which, mercifully, are removable, along with the enveloping carbon fibre shroud.
While the latest instalment of The Hunger Games film franchise has just arrived in cinemas, you'll have to wait until 28 November for these hardy kicks to save the day on Supra's online store.
