On the outside, the leaked sneakers are nearly devoid of branding, including just subtle hints such as the T.7 (Team 7) badges around the heel and Hidden Village Kanji markings on the laces weaved through the lacing unit.

The pair is covered in pink and red with green accents as a nod to Haruo Sakura, the character featured on the shoes. The actual inserts are colored purple and emblazoned with the logo of Naruto Shippūden and an image of Sakura herself.

As this colorway appears to be just one of many in a wider collection, Naruto fans should look forward to what Adidas has in store for the other characters when the collab line reportedly launches later this year.
