tep out in a pair of Godzilla kicks featuring a number of awesome beastly details.
If Godzilla ever needed a new pair of shoes, these sneakers would be up to the task. A joint collaboration between Reebok and the MegaHouse brand that belongs to video game publishing giant Bandai Namco, the new sneakers come in two designs: Reebok CLASSIC × MegaHouse Instapump Fury Road Ver.GODZILLA and the Reebok CLASSIC × MegaHouse Instapump Fury Road Ver.ShinGodzilla.
Both use the distinctive Reebok Instapump Fury silhouette, and the Godzilla version features a textured black material which resembles the skin of the giant monster.
▼ The design that runs along the side of the shoe is another homage to the beast.
▼ And just to let everyone know whose shoes you’re wearing, the heel is emblazoned with the title “King of the Monsters”.
The soles feature a spectacular red-and-black clawed footprint design, along with the words “Godzilla Vs. Fury Road” in Japanese.
While the Godzilla sneakers celebrate the awesome stylings of the original beast, the “Shin Godzilla” design acts as a nod to its latest incarnation, set to wreak havoc on Tokyo in the upcoming Shin Godzilla movie, which will be out in Japanese theatres on July 29 and marketed internationally under the title, Godzilla Resurgence.
These kicks incorporate phosphorescent material into the design, to create an otherworldly glow after dark.
The grey, black and green colours of the shoe are complimented with red accents, including a bloody, three-clawed gash on the heel.
These soles feature a slightly different Godzilla footprint design, again using the words, “Godzilla Vs. Fury Road” in Japanese.
Both styles retail for 28,000 yen (US$263.89) each, plus tax, with the Premium Bandai website in Japan accepting pre-orders from July 29, to coincide with the release of the new Godzilla film. For a full list of retailers in Japan that will be stocking the shoes from the official on-sale date in January 2017, check out the MegaHouse website for more details.
