While Marvel's comics have been entertaining people for generations, the record-breaking blockbuster hit "Avengers: Endgame" proves just how big the cult fan base is. To celebrate the release of the epic sequel, the iconic comic brand is teaming up with Adidas to launch a limited-edition collection of basketball sneakers.

Inspired by Marvel superheroes, the "Heroes Among Us" Collection uses the sneaker styles of some of its most heroic signature athletes - James Harden, Damian Lillard, John Wall, Candice Parker, and Tracy McGrady - to create a six-sneaker collection.

The Dame 5 takes on The Black Panther, the Harden Vol. 3 takes on Iron Man, the N3XT L3V3L takes on Captain America, the Pro Vision takes on Captain Marvel, the T-Mac 1 takes on Nick Fury, and the Marquee Boost takes on Thor.

Each sneaker uses on the colorway of each superhero's costume and comes packaged inside a collector's edition Marvel shoe box. This is definitely the kind you hold on to.

Each sneaker is available in men's sizes and the "Black Panther" Dame 5, "Iron Man" Harden Vol. 3, and "Captain Marvel" Pro Vision are available in kids' sizes.

Whether you're a die-hard fan of Marvel comics and movies, a fan of basketball and the explosive players that make the game exciting, or both, you'll be hard-pressed to find cooler sneakers to add to your collection.
