Puma Set To Launch Their Sonic And Robotnik Shoes


We’ve already seen Puma’s fluffy Sonic The Hedgehog shoes, but there’s a Doctor (Eggman) Robotnik pair too.

Puma unveiled their collaboration with Sonic the Hedgehog at a press event in Berlin, Germany earlier in the year.

The shoes are based on an ’80s revival of the sports manufacturer’s RS (Running System) silhouette and take design cues from SEGA’s Sonic the Hedgehog game. Incorporating elements of the Green Hill Zone level these kicks come in a furry finish with red transparent soles that reveal the Sonic logo. They’re not exactly pretty.

Just like the game, there’s a counterpart to the Sonic themed shoes, and rightly so they’re styled after the Blue Blur’s long-time nemesis, Doctor Ivo (Eggman) Robotnik.

Based on the same RS template, this version comes in a gloss red finish with black and yellow accents that echo those seen on the end of level boss’ Eggmobile.

In truth, both colourways are pretty ugly with their busy designs, but given the choice I’d have to go for Robotnik’s kicks. I just can’t come to terms with the fluffy blue finish on the Sonic pair.



 

 


The Sonic X Puma collaboration goes on sale from June 5th via the Puma website and in-store. Each style will set you back $130 (around £96).
