For the 50th anniversary of Ultraman, Converse has created some awesome kicks, two based on their best selling AllSTAR HI model and one on their SLIP OX.
First up is the ALL STAR ULTRAMAN R HI
Now look at the soles….no one will complain when you sit with your feet up..ever again!
Next up is the ALL STAR ELEKING R HI .
Like the monster in the movies, these glow in the dark!
Look at these soles..sugoi (wow in Japanese)
And last is the BALTANSEIJIN R SLIP OX.
To be worn without or…..
And of course good old Baltan is featured on the soles too.
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.
