After the announcement in March that PUMA and SEGA were collaborating on Sonic the Hedgehog-related footwear, the two giants have finally announced the release date for the PUMA x SEGA RS-0 Sonic and Dr. Eggman sneakers: June 5th.
“The RS-0 Sonic takes cues from Sonic the Hedgehog and the areas he protects, including the iconic Green Hill Zone. The upper is made from a textured suede reminiscent of Sonic’s trademark blue fur while the striking red outsole stands for his shoes. Take a closer look and you’ll see more familiar color hints from the beloved game – from classic gold rings, to the lush green grass that he speeds on.”
“The PUMA x SEGA RS-0 Dr. Eggman take cues from Sonic the Hedgehog’s archnemesis, from his flashy outfit to the black and yellow caution stripes from his Eggmobile represented by the sneaker’s all-over red upper and footbed. The upper is decked in a pebbled patent leather with micro ventilation perforations, a debossed PUMA Formstrip, and a debossed Dr. Eggman head that shoots fireballs from his Eggmobile.”
I’m not sure how I feel about this collaboration, but big Sonic fans are sure to like the designs. The PUMA x SEGA RS-0 sneakers will be available from June 5th.
