The Speed Shoes were invented by Chris Thorndyke after studying Sonic's shoes in order to aid Sonic. About six years after Sonic's departure from earth, Chris showed the Speed Shoes' skematics to Helen, who took a liking to them.
- The description of the Speed Shoes is very similar to the effects of the Power Sneaker power-up in the Sonic video games, hinting they may be the anime's counterparts of said power-up.
