The shoes will go up for sale in July with prices ranging from 8,500 yen for the Elekings to 9,500 yen for both the others.

Why not combine them with a MAN OF ULTRAxROEN layered pullover parka? (43,200 yen)

 

 

Or keep it simple with this MAN OF ULTRA logo t-shirt. (black and white)¥6,372

Funny how things turn out, I admit that I’ve never been a great fan of the early Ultra Man series, but when it comes to fashion, no other superhero has it beat….maybe it’s the simple yet strong name “Ultra Man”, it’s a logo which never looks cheesy but tasteful and can be worn with all outfits. Call me a fan and when I prance around in my new Ultra yukata I know that fashion is on my side and the geek in me will be allowed to walk hand in hand with my better half.
