Sonic is easily one of the most appealing video game characters ever created, and like his erstwhile rival Mario, has made his way onto plenty of questionable merchandise over the years. However, one product we perhaps weren't expecting was a pair of Puma trainers featuring imagery associated with the Blue Blur himself.

The legendary sporting brand is about to release not one but two pairs of Sonic-themed sneakers: the RS-0 Sonic and the RS-0 Dr Eggman. The first takes inspiration from Green Hill Zone and is a rather loud mix of greens and blues, while the latter is a bright red pair, based on Sonic's mortal enemy.

Costing $130 (around £100) and arriving on 5th June, these trainers will certainly ensure that people see you coming. Let us know if you'll be ordering a pair by posting a comment below.
