Sonic The Hedgehog

In case you missed the news, Sonic the Hedgehog will be running about in a pair of red and white Puma shoes in his live-action movie, due out on Valentine's Day next year. Unlike the games, though, he might not be wearing his iconic kicks from the get-go.

You see, if a new television spot released by Paramount Pictures Australia is anything to go by, Sonic will receive his famous pair of runners at some point during the movie. So, in other words, don't expect to see him speeding around in them from the beginning of it.

As James Marsden's character explains in the clip above, Sonic struggles to "control" his speed and these shoes will help him channel it. It's sort of similar to how the blue blur unlocks and receives shoe upgrades in some of his video games.
