Sports equipment and apparel company Mizuno will release Naruto Shippuden sneakers from January 8, 2022. There are three variations of Contender Naruto shoes, with each pair representing a member of the original Team 7. Each pair will cost 13,200 JPY, which is around $114.
The Naruto Shippuden sneakers use colors associated with Team 7 members. For example, Naruto’s is orange and black, the colors of his jumpsuit. The backs of the shoes also have a symbol that represents the character. So the Sasuke shoes, for example, have the iconic Uchiha fan on the back.
The shoes are unisex and range from size 23 to size 29, according to the Mizuno website. Additionally, Mizuno suggests buying a size larger than your foot so that you can comfortably wear socks with the Naruto Shippuden sneakers. The shoe’s design makes it slightly more narrow than ordinary sneakers.
Mizuno also offers international shipping via a proxy service, so those outside of Japan can purchase directly from the Mizuno website. After the official release date, you will also be able to buy the Naruto Shippuden sneakers in sports shops or Jump stores in Japan.
This is the first time that Mizuno has collaborated with Naruto Shippuden. Recent collaborations involving Naruto Shippuden include the Sanrio collection and a Fortnite crossover event. During the Fortnite event, you could get Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi as playable characters.
The Mizuno Naruto Shippuden sneakers will be available from January 8, 2022.
