Mega Man: The Shoes

Yeah, but will these Pumas change color when I switch from the Mega Buster to the Leaf Shield?

I'm really not sure what to make of all the shoes with loose video game themes that have been coming out lately, usually in super-limited fashion. Does have a color-scheme inspired by the NES really count? OK, how about a color scheme inspired by Mega Man?

That's what Puma's pushing today with the Lo Mega!, a pair of shiny blue kicks that I'm very close to buying because I'm easily swayed. Saw these over on GoNintendo today:


You can cruise over to the Puma site if you're the type of individual that can rock shiny shoes without looking like a total ass. Or, if you're like me, and you sort of revel in the idea of looking like a total ass.

I'll deal with looking like a total ass if I can wear Mega Man shoes.

cool

They're waaaaaay too shiny. I hate shiny clothes & footwear. It makes you look like an attention whore. And while I am an attention whore, I prefer to do it more subtly so people don't actually know I'm an attention whore.

Will they enable you to dash slide?

DO WANT!

I heard that if you click your heels with that on, you'll still looks like an ass.

shiny!

Posted by Alphazero

You can only wear these if every time you jump you make the Mega Man pose. That's what sold me on the game when I was reading Nintendo magazines back in the day.

me ga mon?

Posted by JJOR64

Can I turn into Mega Man when I put these on?

Posted by Heartagram

Dude, what?

Posted by insane_shadowblade85

No F'ing way will I be caught wearing video game apparel.

Posted by Death_Burnout

I certainly would not blame you for buying those kicks Jeff.

Posted by CoolDrMoney

How long must I wait until some sweet PaRappa kicks drop?

Posted by needforswede

I'm easily swayed too, when Megaman's involved.  And it's not really videogame apparel, I wouldn't call it that.  However, I don't think anyone else would really think they were cool unless they also liked Megaman and understood the connection.  Can't count on those odds, though.

Posted by FLStyle

They'd certainly be useful for people who want to cosplay in comfort.

Posted by TwoOneFive

and they're pumas! i have two pairs of pumas right now i love their shoes, so chill. i waant to buy these shoes dude. 

Posted by Yelix

I would rather have Mega Man X shoes, so I could rocket dash to get everywhere.

Posted by PartTimeNinja

Oh my... I must have those.

Posted by ValkyrieGoddess

That would be a cool imprint to leave on some one's ass.
The color seem a little out there though....

Posted by Wolverine

I'm not into the color. I think it is a little to bright. Plus they are way to shinny. There priced will though. If I actually liked them I would pay $65 for them. I just don't want to be that guy at school with shinny light blue shoes. You know?

Posted by MrMiyagi

Those are very blue... very blue.

Posted by Bigdonkey1

Posted by Mjolnir

I've got a friend who loves Puma stuff. Maybe I can make him love Mega Man, too.

OMG i would totally buy those
Posted by Luberik

too shiny blue for my part, but they look comfy

Posted by Killroycantkill

Those shoes are soo badass. As long as the Puma logo isn't like right in your face ill buy them lol.

Posted by AndrewB

If they were actual Mega Man shoes, maybe. These are just regular shoes with a blue color scheme that makes them look gaudy.

Posted by addictedtopinescent

I look like an ass wearing shiny shoes

Posted by OzzerOzby

Forget Mega Man shoes. Where are Hammerman shoes?

Posted by TheKing

Guess I know what I'm buying with my paycheck this week.

Posted by JoelTGM

I own a pair of shoes already, and even if I didn't, I would rather go bear foot than walk around in those things.

Posted by TooWalrus

I... I think I need to buy them. Hopefully they aren't SO limited, because I can't spend any money until I get my next paycheck a week from tomorrow...

Posted by billysea

Man, I want one of those.

Edited by geekbot

I say you're either crazy like me for getting these, or crazy for passing these up!

Either way, these shoes are awesome! xD

Edited by erinfizz

Nice. There is also a shiny purple version available for ladies.


Posted by HatKing

I love them.  I wonder how much they are.

Posted by Media_Master

wow

Posted by Joey2683

I'd buy them if they would allow me to kick up walls.

Posted by GiantBomber

Buy them Jeff.

Posted by Linkyshinks

Very retro chic, I like em.

Posted by sofakingcool

Those kicks are sweet!

Posted by Kou_Leifoh

I love the Mega Man series but I'm not going to buy those (Maybe).

Posted by raikoh05

its nice that they went with that color scheme, but I hate the rest of the actual shoe.
