PUMA and SEGA Announce New Sonic and Eggman Sneakers Coming June 5th

by on May 21, 2018

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.
