If you're a fan of anime, you would probably know Saitama, a.k.a. One Punch Man.
He is the world's mightiest hero, capable of killing monsters with just one punch.
While it's very unlikely that we can be like him (except for shaving your entire head bald), we can at least look a little bit like him.
Look good saving the world
Lifestyle brand Skechers have officially unveiled their latest anime collaboration: the Skechers X One Punch Man Collection
Created in association with the superhero manga and anime franchise 'One Punch Man', the collection features four new styles of sneakers for both men and women, with each colourway inspired by an iconic character from the series:
Saitama/One Punch Man
Created on Skechers’ chunky Stamina 2.0 silhouette, titular hero Saitama is being represented through his signature colours of yellow and red along the panelling of the sneaker, along with the ‘One Punch’ icon on the shoe tongue, fans will also appreciate the subtle elements that call back to each character. The sneakers feature wavy lined panelling and a thick sole base for the street-style look. An Air-Cooled Memory Foam cushioned insole provides breathability and comfort, perfect for any hero.
Saitama's trusty sidekick, the cyborg Genos, also has his own Skechers silhouette. Just like the Saitama model, Genos' Stamina 2.0 sneakers features navy and black accents, just like his character in the manga/anime series. The Genos silhouette features a gear icon on the shoe tongue.
The popular S-Class: Rank 2 heroine Tornado also gets her own Skechers silhouette with a light and dark green colourway - which matches her look in the anime series. You can find a tornado icon on the tongue of her Stamina 2.0 silhouette.
Last but not least, what's a hero without a villain, right? The fast-as-lightning ninja Sonic also gets his own silloutte, with the pair of Stamina 2.0s spotting black and purple accents. A shuriken icon can be found on the tongue of the shoe.
The Skechers X One Punch Man sneaker collection, which comes in men and women sizes, retails for RM459
What’s more, pair your sneakers with character hoodies and a pullover, each featuring the symbols and cartoon likeness of each of the four characters. For example, the Saitama hoodie features his instantly-recognisable straight-faced stare and the phrase ‘最强の男’ (The Strongest) on the front, while the sleeves are emblazoned with the ‘One Punch’ icon and his name (サイタマ/Saitama).
Tornado makes a whirlwind entrance on both a hoodie and a pullover, with three other pullover designs that will be launched online, and later at selected Skechers stores in March.
The hoodie and pullover collection retails at RM379
