Ultraman turns 50 years old this year, and Converse is helping celebrate the giant robot fighting man in monster suit action with a pair of All Star shoes inspired by the series.

The All Star Ultraman R HI features the body parts of Ultraman across the entire upper, with a blue patch (right side) and an asymmetric red patch (left side) as a reminiscent of the color timer.

Unfortunately, the All Star Ultraman shoes are only available in Japan, with each pair in the series selling for $80-$90.

Ultraman aired for less than a year in Japan, and though the series inspired and lead to many other famous shows, it is still relatively obscure in areas outside of Japan. Still, I kind of want a pair. Do they come in 10.5 Wide?

  1. “Ultraman aired for less than a year in Japan,,,”

    That is like saying Kamen Rider only aired for one year. There are a bunch of series, movies and specials in the Ultra series, with past Ultras (including the original) making cameos in newer series and movies.

    I REALLY want a pair of these. I’m not usually one for themed shoes like this, but these are just too awesome to pass up.
