Just last week, Paramount Pictures released their new and improved trailer for the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog movie. Now we have a look at a Sonic The Hedgehog x PUMA collection, releasing in celebration of the movie.
PUMA released a couple of Sonic The Hedgehog themed sneakers last year, both in the RS-0 silhouette, but this year’s collection includes the new RS-X3 silhouette. The colorway is reminiscent of the cover art for the 1994 Sega Genesis game “Sonic & Knuckles,” dressed in black with hits of red and blue.
The midsole features a ring counter and number of lives indicator, both nods to the Sonic video games. The “x 3” on the lives counter could also be a reference to the name of the silhouette. The insole features a checkerboard pattern, which is a common pattern used in the video game stage designs.
Look for the Sonic the Hedgehog x PUMA RS-X3 to release on November 21st at select retailers and PUMA.com for a retail price of $120 USD. The full Sonic apparel collection will launch on February 7th, ahead of the premiere of the Sonic The Hedgehog movie on February 14th. Check out the RS-X3 and apparel below.
