|Here are some adult size Crew Style Sonic Socks by Bio World. These were sold at Game Stop in 2019. They seem to be about 7.99 for the pair, without a sale. They have red toe, heel and top cuff, gray stripes mid-foot, and a proflie running classic Sonic stock art on the leg part. The design is sewn into the sock, so it can't wear off. He is full color, but has a blue outline/border instead of gray or black, and also the pupil is blue. (no black thread used for the sock at all) It's good to see adults sizes socks that anyone can wear. Photo & owned by|
|A twinkling wallet!
This tri fold wallet is actually pretty interesting. It is made with a twinkling fabric. It looks like it might be glitter in the photos, but it isn't. The fabric itself is somehow sparkly with super small specks of sparkle. However, it will only sparkle under direct light, if it is in shadow it won't shine much/at all so it is unlike glitter or a sequin. It has a somewhat rough texture. See this in person, if possible.
|It is a tough nylon/weave material so it's sturdy, with CG Sonic, Tails & Knuckles on the exterior. The CG and glitter effect combine with that the characters are a separate piece, to make them seem more '3d-like'. The interior is very nice as well, with zipper pocket (uncommon!) plenty of room for cards and bills. It has the modern logo, and a velcro closure. This is by Accessory Innovations and can be found at Target for about 7 dollars in 2019. Photos by KennyThe Hedgehog, wallet is also in the Gear collection. Certainly a recomended item upon price & interesting-factor! Collect it if you can.|
|Here is a pair of Old Navy socks.
These appear in winter 2019 / 2020, and they fit adults sizes. They are in the Men's section of the store, and should be about 8.00 for the pair.
These are black, with a white & blue stripe and blue heel & toe area. They have a woven-in classic Sonic face with white border. It only uses blue & white thread for the colors. The tag is a little confusing, it says "Classic" but then also "Crew Socks Tube Socks". This conflicts, because a tube is not a crew, that's 2 different types of sock and 1 can't be both at once. It looks like it is a true crew, however because the sock is clearly shaped. (Tube is not) It's a good ordinary but solid design.
|It's another 5 pack of Sonic underwear!
That's 10 pairs so far in only month 2 of 2020...this time it's from the "Handcraft" brand. (Guarenteed to not be hand crafted so...why) and you can find this in Target stores any time after February. The pack of 5 comes in this hang tag/topper bag, but it has a picture of all the designs laid out. They are boxer briefs style, and boys sizes only. (Ex large may fit a teen, depending) You can see it has
All blue plain pair with Sonic name & face along the waist band, blue waist band with busy checker, "S" circle, Sonic face, Sonic stock art & Stock art scattering, a black pair with CG (probably tee-style pressed on) portraits for Sonic, Tails & Eggman on one leg, a checker theme white pair with square portraits for Sonic, Tails, Knuckles & Shadow, and a white pair with 1 large jumping/pointing Sonic on small checker splash with "S" circle & his name.
In all, the set is actually pretty stylish. The designs vary nicely, there's a colorful range of characters, and nothing feels redone or boring. What's too bad is that they didn't also make it for adults or tall kids. This should be about 15.00 in Target which is an ok price for 5 pairs, really.
|The Puma & Sonic Shoe Collaberation worked in 2020!
Puma, the famous shoe brand teamed up with Sega & Sonic to make THREE different pairs of 'subtle-Sonic' shoes that you see here. AND they are for adults in real adult sizes! AND Kids Too! So everyone is welcome to wear them, which, as fans know is a really good move but an awesome change from how things usually are. CG to Puma!
The first pair at top left are the "originals". Puma says that their colors are Sonic inspired with blue accents, 3 gold rings on each heel, and red/yellow/blue soles like the classic (Japanese type) box art. Here, you can find the Puma & Sonic face logo inside the shoe. There's also one on the square track area on the shoe sole, which is the same shape for every style of shoe. The other two pairs have checkering inside, but the same pair of logos.
|The next shoe is the stylish all-black pair, but you can see it has an added Sonic face on one side, as well as the 3 rings on the back and the shoe tongue detail. These soles are red, blue and black. The last pair is possibly a little bit Eggman inspired too? The uppers are black but with a red fade toward the heel. The heel then has the green/red 'caution stripe' detail, plus a text block with the score/time/rings readout that's always on the game screen. This pair again uses the nice gold foil under the rings, and still has the shoe tongue detail. Confusingly though, the soles add a kind of odd salmon/plah-doh pink plus the hot green and black. It looks a bit odd with the red, but isn't terrible or anything.
These are certain to be "Subtile Sonic" items. Only upon quite close inspection of the shoe could a non-fan recognize the Sonic elements seen here. And, that is just fine for some people as well as merchandise variety being really super. The best thing though is that they'll fit anybody. These should be about $120.00 AND you can buy them on the Puma website as long as they don't sell out. This is a Winter 2020 item. (If/when it sells out the link should go away) Discovered by Taaron.
|Now here's something rare and interesting to see.
This is a pair of Sonic themed black kids sneakers from the 1990s. They are QUITE uncommon. However, many fans remember seeing these shoes either worn by others, in a store, or in photos so they were very often reported on, but with no photos to prove exactly what they looked like up until now. Why so many people have memories of them, but they are still/were still so rare is a mystery.
The other mystery here is what shoe company made them? It isn't evident, but they are actually pretty stylish. There's multi-color embroidery for the Sega logo on the heel. There is a zooming/jumped Sonic for both sides of the back of the shoe that's pretty big. A pick-up band of color in red/blue/yellow goes along the side to across the toe. The lace holes are red accented, & a red pattern is on the interior & top edge. The box is also clearly quite Sonic themed with him on there & comic book 'exploding blocks' style font too, plus logos & checkering all around.
|The shoes in this photo are new, they still have the paper hang tag on there. So, that means that either somebody has kept the shoes since day 1, or these are very old photos. This is probably in the hand of a Sonic collector somewhere.|
|And now for something slightly strange...
Here's a new pair of socks for 2020 by Bio World. They fit adults sizes/anyone but...they're kinda wierdly designed. Rather than having a typical "Sonic Design" they try to form his whole body AS a sock. And because he is not generally a sock-shaped person...it does not have all that much success. The face is ok as a wrap-around thing, but the belly dot is crazy wide and almost abstract. The arms appear coming out of the neck area, and the space between the legs is indicated with a distracting black rectangle that's also too wide. The shoes are foreshortened...wrapping around near the toe? Which is then blue again?
These are odd to look at, classic of style, and...I guess they're a novelty?
|Bio World produces 2 more socks for summer 2020.
This is the factory photo, which shows they are in adults sizes to fit anyone (yay) and the designs are sewn into the fabric so they can't wear off. The socks are gray, with blue heel, cuff, and toe. The first pair has some neoclassic art for Sonic with feet forward and one fist held out. It has black double stripes for the foot area & below the cuff. The other sock has a scattering of all the same classic Sonic face all over the whole sock.
What's odd with the first one is they DO have black thread, so why didn't they use it for his eyes? He'd look better and sharper if they were black. (The second pair doesn't use black thread so it would have cost more to use it for just the eyes so you can see why they wouldn't in this instance) But, how much are these, and where are they sold?
|Kohls is going wild for Summer Sonic Socks in 2020! Here are TWO kids socks 5 packs to collect or choose from. You can order these on their website too, so no one should miss out, even if the local store has closed (As could happen in 2020/virus)|
|At above left is the boys 5 pack. These are 'no show' socks, meaning they're just anklets. They're all modern, with the deigns sewn in/so they don't wear off. You get standing hand/hip Sonic with red and black, thumbs up in a ring Sonic with gray and blue, a scattering of forward & 3/4 Sonic faces with red & gray, gold rings on blue/red & a white outline Sonic on blue with red.
Above right is the Girls Set, which is all classic, and still anklet no-shows. There's Sonic pointing at rings on light blue, shrugging Amy on pink, wink-amy Face in pink on white, cheering Tails on pink & scattering of Sonic faces on light blue. Amy makes the set more fun as she is uncommon on socks.
|Kohls department stores adds this 4 pack of kids size boxer briefs to the list in 2020/summer season. The boxer breif is good if you don't want to choose your underwear style and just combine both, but it is also (seemingly) the least common sort. This pack has nice designs including a fully CG pair with Sonic, Tails & Knuckles plus a GHZ style background printed over the whole fabric. (unusual) Then there's a busy pair with a scattering of characters that's difficult to make out on a black background with aqua blue waist, a plain red pair with "Sonic" spelled out on the waist band with stars, and a yellow waist pair with light blue fabric that has a scattering of full color Sonics, logos and circle swirl shapes. They all have the same cut and are likely all the same fabric.|
|Kohls also adds this 5 pack of simple breifs underwear to their selections in Summer 2020. Each has a different color for the elastic & seams, but is the same cut and fabric. The blue border has a very busy character portrait pattern all over, the gray border has checkers with star bumpers, red/yellow & orange in them, plus Sonic faces, the yellow border spells out SONIC in big letters over the back, but has him in a circle on one hip area, the red border has full color jumping Sonic on a light blue background, and the black border has Sonic in a circle on one hip & Tails in a circle on the other one...aaand there's a design on the back too but you can't see it and they won't show more than one photo of this.|
