Streaming superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is set to launch his first collaboration with Adidas on New Year’s Eve. So, here’s what you need to know when it comes to getting your hands on the Ninja Nite sneakers.

Since using Fortnite to propel himself to the top of the streaming world, Ninja has become a household name. The former Halo professional used to dominate Twitch viewership statistics – including once having a quarter of a million subscribers – before cutting his near-decade-long relationship with the Amazon-owned platform and heading to Mixer.


Ninja, though, has transcended streaming. He’s collaborated on an EDM album, and even appeared in an NFL commercial that debuted during the Super Bowl, but his biggest move came when partnering with Adidas. The iconic clothing company is set to launch their first piece of Ninja merch – the Ninja Nite sneakers – and you can get your hands on them.

Where to buy Ninja’s Adidas sneakers

The Ninja Nite jogger shoes will become available via the official Adidas website on Tuesday, December 31.  While these types of shoe launches, typically reserved for limited release items, can require a password or exclusive link, this one does not – but it will take place as a ‘waiting room release’ according to the various Adidas online stores.


 This means that customers will be granted access to the sale at random, and your best chance is to set a reminder via the website themselves so that you get prompted at the exact launch time. 

AdidasThe shoes will available via Adidas’ online stores.

What time will Ninja’s shoes release?

As for the time of the release, the UK and German Adidas websites state that there will be a release time of 9 am GMT on December 31.

However, on the US-based store, they refer to a launch time of 3 pm GMT/11 am EST/8 am PST for both the adults and kid’s shoes. Wheter or not this will be a staggered launch – meaning that EU customers can grab some first – before the US release, is unknown.


How much will Ninja’s shoes cost? 

If you do manage to get into the random access sale though, be prepared to hand over a sizeable amount of your holiday cash – if you were lucky enough to get some – or break into that piggy bank.

The UK store has a price tag of £129.95 for the adult shoe, and £84.95 for the kids. In the US, those price tags are $150 and $120, while Germany clocks in at €149.95 and €119.95 respectively. 

AdidasThe Ninja Nite sneakers will set you back a pretty penny.

As of now, the shoes will be the only pieces of Ninja merch available, but he and fellow streamers have been seen donning hoodies, jackets, and jogging bottoms that all contain his name or logo.


Whether or not they will come at a later date remains to be seen but as of now, you will be able to grab some Ninja-themed sneakers.

A Pokemon GO player’s livestream was interrupted when a mugger robbed them in front of viewers. The Trainer’s phone and car were stolen during the broadcast.

Pokemon GO took the world by storm in 2016, as players from all over ventured outside of their homes to catch their favorite monsters. The mobile title developed by Niantic brought the beloved Nintendo RPG to real life for millions.


Unfortunately, because the game takes place in the real world, unexpected things can happen – from fans assaulting each other over Gyms, to even murder. On October 8, a streamer’s broadcast quickly turned violent after they were mugged, much to the horror of their audience.

Pokemon GO player robbed live on stream

Pokemon GO streamer Anthony ‘xDeezzNutzx’ was broadcasting live on October 8 when his Twitch stream was abruptly brought to a halt. The player was trying to catch a Croagunk when a stranger attacked him.


While there is no video of the incident, viewers tuning it could hear the audio of the terrifying moment. “Whoa dude, I’m live! I’m live! I don’t got nothing. I don’t have anything!” the 23-year old told the assailant.

The thief can be heard telling the Pokemon fan “The f**k wrong with you?!” after they tried to resist the theft. The GO stream then cut off after the criminal stole the player’s phone.


The thieves could be heard talking on the stream after multiple attempts to unlock the victim’s phone. “We got to get up through here really quick. Come on. We got his vape, his car keys, let’s get the whip, right,” they said.

It wasn’t long before the criminals realized that the phone was still broadcasting live. “He was going live? Why does he got so many goddamn portable chargers?” they said, before taking off with the stolen items.


According to Reddit, a police investigation is now underway. At the time of writing, the individuals have not yet been found or arrested. Based on the audio, it appears that the streamer was mugged by four individuals.

This story is sadly another example of how unpredictable the real world can actually be. And unfortunately, that means even players trying to enjoy Pokemon GO outside can sometimes get caught up in some scary situations.
