Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba UBIQ Sneakers Turn Character Motifs Into Shoes

The result of various Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba fashion collaborations is that, in spite of the influence of the period its set in with how the series looks and its abundant use of traditional patterns in its character designs, you can turn the motifs of the series into some rather cool pieces of fashion. You could, quite easily, look smart in head-to-toe collaboration clothing, and even make a drink to carry with you when you’re parched. Well, aside from shoes. Luckily, atmos have you covered, with a number of colorful sneakers from UBIQ that not only embrace the designs of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and its characters, but look fashionable and cool in the process.

One look at these sneakers and you can immediately see the influence of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba on their designs. Each of the 6 proposed shoes is styled upon one of the main characters from the series, taking the patterned design of their clothing and their symbol into account. Taijiro Kamoda’s shoe is a green-and-black checkered design with the design on his earrings used as an emblem on the shoe. Nezuko’s shoe is pink with the bamboo gag on the emblem, with similar considerations being made for shoes based on Zenitsu, Inosuke, Giyo and Shinobu.

Each of these sneakers comes in a specially-designed shoebox that prominently features their character, and if someone chooses to buy all 6 pairs of shoes, the boxes can be lined up to create a panorama lineup of the characters across one side. Of course, buying all 6 pairs is also of some expense and whether you’d even find enough occasions to wear all 6 pairs enough time to be worth the cost is debatable, but it’s neat to see that there is some continuity being considered here.

These shoes come in sizes 23cm-30cm and cost 9000yen plus tax. These Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba sneakers from UBIQ and Atmos can be pre-ordered now from the Atmos website, and will ship in late December.
