The Power Sneakers are objects that appear in the Sonic the Hedgehog television series. It is a special pair of shoes with multiple functions worn by Sonic the Hedgehog.



The Power Sneakers are a pair of smooth red shoes with pointed toes, white sock-like cuffs, dark grey soles and a white strap over their middles.

Abilities and traits

While not stated, the Power Sneakers appear friction proof, meaning they never wear out; even when Sonic the Hedgehog runs fast enough to set the ground on fire, his sneakers show no damage.

The Power Sneakers are fitted with anti-gravity jets on the soles that allow Sonic to slow his descent when falling in order to land safely. These "anti-gravs" are activated by pushing a button on the side of the shoe.[1] The Power Sneakers also have magnetic soles, also activated by buttons on the shoes, that allow him to stick to metal surfaces, such as the underside of a Hover Unit.[2]


Sonic donned his Power Sneakers at some point after he fled to Knothole following Dr. Robotnik's takeover.

Over time, Sonic would prove fiercely protective of his sneakers. When Antoine threw them out of his home when he saw that Sonic was tracking mud inside his hut, Sonic angrily told him to never mess with "his sneaks" again.[3]
