The Power Shoes (パワーアップシューズ Pawāappushūzu?, lit. "Power-Up Shoes") are objects that appear in the anime series Sonic X. It is a special pair of shoes created by Chris Thorndyke for Sonic the Hedgehog which can protrude blades.
Based on Sonic's regular sneakers, the Power Shoes are primarily red. They also possess yellow-rimmed white tongues with thick groves, grey soles, white cuffs with a yellow stripe on the back, and yellow circles with a black stripe each on the sides.
Features and traits
When activated, the Power Shoes protrude rotatable saw blades from the soles. Sonic can then move along any surface at high speed without having to run, while cutting through whatever the Power Shoes slide over.
The Power Shoes were created by Chris Thorndyke as a means of helping Sonic the Hedgehog in his adventures so as not to be a burden like in the past. When the Blue Typhoon got stuck in some vines inside the Intergalactic Cloister, Sonic donned the Power Shoes and used them to cut all the vines surrounding the ship, freeing it.
