Unveiled during the Sonic panel at SXSW(South By Southwest) a few months back, the most we’ve seen about this pair of anticipated crossover sneakers featuring everybody’s favorite blue blur was a pixelated teaser, but we now have more details for these snazzy shoes. Not only are these going to be purchasable on June 5th but there will also be a pair designed after Sonic The Hedgehogs arch nemesis Dr. Eggman! Each pair will feature a color scheme similar to their respective character on the outside as well as on the inside.
At first glance of these bad boy you will immediately notice that the Pumas brand has done a great job at keeping these pairs extremely casual and stylish but definitely easy to recognize. Each pair has small details that would make any Sonic fan(like myself)giddy with excitement. Each pair has Sonic’s name on the bottom of the sneaker as well as the respective characters inside looking on as you slip them on, ready to strut with style.
Puma has recently made several successful collaborations featuring franchises like Hello Kitty to XO(designed by artist The Weeknd).
For SEGA, this exciting collaboration underlines their continued efforts to
align key franchises within the SEGA portfolio with high-end and highly
visible brands from the worlds of fashion, lifestyle and art.
You will be able to purchase these beautiful sneakers on Pumas official website as well as storefronts on June 5th for a mere $130.
