Limited to a scant five pairs, Sonic’s Surgeon-created kicks feature a designed-from-scratch upper that mixes two red leathers with mesh. Using a bold sheen on the forefoot and a high-gloss patent on the heel, both types of leather add extra red tones and textures to the slip-on sock base. A white leather strap reaches across the midfoot for lockdown, and the only piece of branding is provided by a yellow PUMA tongue tab.
Although the upper is completely original, the white midsole is inherently familiar: it’s drawn directly from the RS-X line. The look is rounded off by way of a custom insole with high-octane Sonic motifs and lightning bolt embellishments.
The Shoe Surgeon x PUMA Sonic shoes are a promotional item and will not see a retail release, but you can catch Sonic the Hedgehog in theaters come February 14.
