|This cap is a little unusual, due to the thickness of its Sonic design.
It is a 'flatbill' style cap, where the brim is stiff, not curved at all. The main cap part is mottled gray, with a single classic Sonic face on the front. It looks like a smooth cloth/embroidery combo item, but it's somehow even thicker than usual...maybe raised on a fabric backing?
For added interest, the brim is blue, with full color running classic Sonic with a 'speed smear' of color trail behind him. The two elements combine to make the classic type hat seem fresh. This is a 2016 item, but where is it sold?
|Here's a bit of a clever cap.
This hat doesn't even have Sonic on it at all. It's plain blue, with just a ring monitor sitting on Green Hill Zone grass for it's main design. The bill of the cap has GHZ 'dirt' in the classic checkered browns pattern. This design is instantly recognizable to any Sonic fan, but it is otherwise non-obvious, making it a bit more subtle of a hat. That green dot there on the brim isn't part of the design, it is a sales ticker. Cap may be found in some Spencers' Gifts stores/possible. Photo by Taaron
|This cap has been found at Target stores in the USA.
It should be in with their branded hats, in the boys clothing area, usually above 'character tees'. It's a light blue baseball cap style hat, with checkered brim. It has a large all embroidery patch on the front with a classic Sonic face. The 'background' for the face is a yellow and orange...pixelated looking sort of circle. The 'squares' that make it up are different direction bundles of embroidered thread. It's nice to see Sonic back on shelves at Target in early 2017. Photo by CrystalSonic Fan
|Here are the much coveted Sonic X Sneakers! They are for boys or girls, but (sadly) only came in kids sizes. They were released around the time of the show (but later on) and are still quite wanted|
|just as a collectible, not even as a wearable item. (Too small for pretty much anyone) Why? because they're just JAMMED with super detail! First of all, they light up when you run (lights flash behind Sonic panel)|
|Then, there's Sonic detail at every turn. The box looks nice, with X logo, and 2 different Sonic arts. One side of the shoe (outer) has very shiny plastic 'jumping punch' Sonic, and the other side has a textured Knuckles portrait. But look at the background area for Knuckles: those aren't just dots, they're actually little tiny Sonic X logo heads. The top velcro has an X logo, the shoe tongue has a plastic Sonic face & the inside cushion layer also has an X logo. But the details don't stop there!|
|The heels have a X head raised/soft silver 'button' disk set in them. The sole of the shoe has a full color X logo in a clear/shiny 'bubble' of plastic. (Why? This is a real nice item, but it would be the first thing to get scuffed away to nothing) The foot arch area also has a 'spikes' looking design going on. It's no wonder the shoes are so highly desired (they were 14.99 when new, as evidenced by circle price tag there) a lot of thought went into branding them completely Sonic X. It's too bad they were uncommon when new, and small sizes only. This pair is in the SonicGear personal collection. (As of 2017, the light up feature still works)|
|Here is a new at for 2017, from Bio World. It was found in a Think Geek retail shop, and should be 20 dollars. It's not made of regular hat fabric, it's a light-weight nylon (most likely) similar to windbreaker jackets & a bit shiny. The color is 'pomegranate red' & it has a large embroidered front. It's Sonic wagging a finger in the winged star ring with banner, just like in the title screen of Sonic 1. The bill is very flat & 'snap-back' type. Inside, there's a bit of mesh netting to keep your forehead cool. The tag is classic, with an off-rectangle shape. With the nice, big & quality embroidered design right from Sonic 1, & the different-feeling fabric this hat can be really classicly styled, with a bit of a fresh angle. Photos by All-Star Warriors|
|Great news! GE released the Sonic Slipper!
In 2017, the GE Sonic Shoe Slipper was released for sale in the US at Hot Topic Stores
....and they look great. Each slipper is 'plush' so it stays shaped properly. The 'sock' has a velcro in the back (bottom right) so you can easily fit your foot in. The buckle is plush/fabric as well. The bottoms are just black, but they have those little rubber 'dots' to give it traction on any floor type. The back/heel of the shoe sole has that oval printed on (Shoe texture? It's in the art, so it makes sense here)
Another great feature is that they'll likely fit ANYone, these aren't some annoying 'kiddie' item, it fets Mens 3-9 and Womens 5-11. Even if you don't plan on wearing them, just having a big life size pair of Sonic shoes to collect or display is fantastic. Photo & owned by All-Star Warriors
|How does GE's Sonic Shoe Slipper compare to the previously released Drop-Dead pair? Quite favorably!
Notice how the GE 'sock' has the line in the center of it to imitate the fold in Sonic's sock, while the Drop Dead one lacks it. The GE buckle is also a more 'cartoony' presentation than the smaller plastic one DD used. The bottoms, while differently colored are about the same. The DD tag though has (probably) Picky the Pig little animal on it as a hidden detail.
If you like Sonic's shoes...you'll like either pair. The GE ones will be much less expensive for USA fans, however (DropDead is a UK company who ships overseas, but that does add to the cost). They may also fit more feet because of the velcro 'sock' modification. It can fit up to size 9.5 foot (or maybe a bit larger) These are thick with stuffing and make wrinkly noises when walking.
