Ahead of the recently premiered Sonic the Hedgehog movie, Shoe Surgeon and PUMA crafted a replica of Sonic’s signature red and white sneakers.
Inspired by Sonic’s own sneaks, the shoes come dressed in a vibrant red and blinding white with gold accents. The upper is designed entirely from scratch that combines leather and mesh for breathable yet unbeatable performance. The shoe’s glossy properties shine on the forefoot and heel but throw in different textures seen through the sock base. The gold accented tongue tag offers the shoe’s only branding element that serves as a classy contrast to the red and white colorway. A thick white leather strap holds down the whole ensemble for a snug fit.
The Sonic touches come in the form of motifs on the midsole and lightning bolt embellishments. The pair is a rare release, limited to only five pairs. While its rarity only adds to its charm, if you’re looking to cop a similar technology, the construction is inspired by the RS-X line.
Unfortunately, the Shoe Surgeon x PUMA “Sonic the Hedgehog” silhouette won’t be offered in a retail release, but you can check out the design process below.
