If you grew up during Sonic the Hedgehog‘s early 90s heyday, it’s a safe bet you’ve at one time or another wanted to dress like Sonic. There are a few obstacles to this goal, though, first and foremost the fact that he’s mostly naked except for socks and sneakers – a look that only the coolest cartoon characters are capable of pulling off. However, the new Anippon Sonic the Hedgehog slip-on sneakers will let you capture Sonic’s sneaker game, at least.
Anippon is a Japanese brand that has partnered with Sega to release the new Anippon Sonic the Hedgehog slip-on sneakers, and they belong to the proud style tradition of replicating cartoon character’s clothing, a tradition which I embrace wholeheartedly.
So maybe I’ll grab my own pair of Anippon Sonic the Hedgehog slip-on sneakers from the brand’s online store here, where they’re priced at about $63 American since going on sale about a week ago.
