Adidas is at it again with a crossover into the anime world. Following the success of its extensive seven-sneaker Dragon Ball Z collection last year, it seems the performance footwear giants are ready to dive into another beloved Japanese manga series, Naruto. Earlier leaks online already gave a glimpse of the first Adidas x Naruto sneaker inspired by the character, Sakura. This time, we’re looking at a sneaker themed after Kakashi – the teacher of Team 7 comprising Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura.

The uppers are dressed in navy suede with textured gray fabric lining the three stripes branding, heel and tongue tab along with an olive heel counter. To drive home the collaboration, Adidas has also detailed the tongue, heel tab and lace lock with Naruto branding. To top it off, the full-length white Boost midsole also features navy Japanese characters on the lateral side.
