Highsnobiety aims to provide our readers with the latest updates in the sneaker world. However, we cannot verify the reliability of any unauthorized leaks or rumors unless this information is provided directly by the brands themselves.
Last month, leaks suggested that adidas could be preparing a footwear collaboration with much-loved manga and anime series Naruto. Now we have been treated to what appear to be adidas product shots of a Kakashi Hatake-themed Copa Ultraboost.
The football-inspired silhouette features a colorway and detailing that shout out the Team 7 leader. A blue suede upper is complemented by gray hairy suede on the Three Stripes, tongue tag, and heel pull tab. Kakashi’s Mangekyō Sharingan eye emblem sits on the tongue tag, while Leaf Village motifs are featured on the heel. Japanese characters reading “Hatake Kakashi” are printed along the Boost midsole near the heel.
This is the first Naruto x adidas sneaker whose product shots have leaked, with unofficial images of another Naruto-themed shoe having leaked previously. It's unclear how many shoes there are in total, but it looks like this collaboration could be in the mold of adidas' Dragon Ball Z collection from last year.
