'My Hero Academia' Custom Nike Sneakers Bring Deku's Costume To Life

My Hero Academia stands as one of anime’s top titles. In the same vein as Naruto, the shonen series has nabbed fans the world over, and it seems one of them is helping others walk a mile in Izuku Midoriya’s shoes.

After all, it seems a pair of customized Nike sneakers have hit the Internet, and fans admit they’d be willing to cash in for the pricey kicks.

Over on Reddit, a fan known as Captain Durango posted their mock-up of some Deku kicks. The anime sneakers will customized using Nike’s online program, and you can check them out here.

Mocked up Bakugo inspired shoes. What's your opinion on the Deku's?

As you can see above, the shoe’s body is primarily forest green with some light green paneling. The shoes are a bright red to match some of the detailing on Izuku’s shoes, and the Nike swoop is colored to match. Finally, there is a patch of grey on the heel that aligns with its black soles.

These shoes might not be the red kicks Izuku wears in the series, but its color scheme matches his costume hero all the way. So, if you have a spare $130 dollars to spend, then you can take these kicks home for yourself.

If you are wanting the shoes Izuku wears in the anime, you are looking for a pair of Nike kicks as well. The hero wears sneakers similar to the Nike Air Force 1 High iD in red. Right now, those specific shoes are sold out online, so fans will need to keep checking back in for a restock as spring rolls in.

So, would you be willing to rock this custom kicks? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!
