These Slick My Hero Academia-Inspired Nike Sneakers Honor Momo

When it comes to sneakers, collectors are always game to expand their closets, and anime fans have started exploring all the ways they can celebrate their fandom through kicks. Now, one fan has imagined the perfect pair of tennis shoes for Momo Yaoyorozu, and fans seem to think they are pretty perfect.

Over on Reddit, a user known as Captain Durango continued their mission to create custom Nike shoes inspired by My Hero Academia. This time, the artist tasked themselves with wrangling Creati, and her shoes are something special. For such an amazing character, this design practically created itself! Today's design is for the Creation Hero, Yaoyorozu,” the fan shared.

As you can see below, the shoes perfectly match up with Momo’s color scheme. The shoes come courtesy of the Nike Zoom KD11 style. Their body is a dark red with white laces, and there are golden panels spanning across the kicks. A white sole helps balance out the shoe, and fans can spot a UA Academy detail on the heel of one sneaker.

Did you catch it? After all, it is hard to miss the 1-A printed on the shoe, a note honoring Momo’s status as the vice president of Class 1-A.

If you were hoping to take these shoes home with you, then you'll need to sit down. While Captain Durango did share their custom link for the Nike sneakers, they have seem to sold out. The URL apologizes for the blip, but fans can always take a crack at design their own Zoom KD11 sneakers if they're that determined.
