    Heads up, Mega Man fans! Capcom recently unveiled a collaboration with Japanese footwear brand ASICS for a Mega Man-inspired collection featuring a pair of Gel-BND sneakers and various apparel.

    The highlight of the ASICS x Mega Man (or Rockman in Japan) collection is no doubt the Gel-BND sneakers. This pair of runners comes in Mega Man’s signature blue hue, complete with various details inspired by the gaming icon.

    The sneakers come in a two-tone blue upper made with patent leather. The signature ASICS pattern at the side and the “GEL” heel marks are also transformed to be more pixelated, owing to the game’s 8-bit origins. Other design elements of the sneaker include Katakana on the left pair’s tongue that spells ASICS, as well as a large midsole.
