Although we’ve seen sneakers inspired by the Mobile Suit Gundam anime in the past, such as the Nike Air Max 98 “Gundam”, no shoe company has done an official partnership with Gundam… until now. Chinese footwear company 361° has created several basketball sneakers inspired by the hugely popular Japanese comic art series, made in collaboration with the Gundam franchise. The kicks resemble robots from the Gundam series in celebration of its 40th anniversary.
Amuro Ray’s RX-78-2 inspired the design of one the pairs, dressed in white with red, yellow and blue details. Another pair is inspired by MS-06S Zaku II, which features a slip-on design and a strap at the ankle for a more technical look, and comes in a red, black and purple colorway.
There is no plans for a stateside release of the Mobile Suit Gundam x 361° collab. but you can try copping a pair from the 361° website.
