Ever since the first Naruto x adidas sneaker leaked in July, sneakerheads and ninjas everywhere have been waiting for more release info. Now, exactly one month later, images have surfaced of a Naruto x adidas Copa Ultra Boost 'Kakashi', and it's everything that we've dreamed of and a whole lot more.
Taking very obvious design cues from the Copy Ninja himself, the blue suede upper resembles his mask and outfit, while hairy grey suede on the tongue and heel represent his signature spiky hairstyle that's been iconic since the legendary manga made its debut back in 1997. A military green heel cup pays homage to his vest, embellished with "Ultra Boost"; branding, and right underneath it, you'll find Japanese characters reading “Hatake Kakashi” printed along the Boost midsole.
To round off the former Hokage's UB, his Mangekyo Sharingan eye hits the tongue tag, while Konoha's leaf village emblem and the Anbu's red tattoo graces the pull tab and heel respectively, completing the look.
Marking the second Naruto x adidas sneaker that we've seen, we're beyond hyped to see more in the very near future, especially the pair that represents the titular character. Let us know what you're thinking, and be sure to keep it locked at The Sole Supplier for more release info as it develops!
