Best Anime Sneaker and Streetwear Collabs As Of March 2024

Including beloved franchises such as Dragon Ball, Pokémon, Jujutsu Kaisen, and more.


In recent times, Japanese anime has significantly ascended within the realm of streetwear collaborations. Once confined to enthusiasts known as “otaku”—a Japanese term that describes people with consuming interests—it is now widely embraced by the general public for its cultural stature and influence in modern entertainment and art.

Taking that into consideration, brands have sought opportunities to incorporate such elements into their own lineup of offerings through various collaborative efforts. Prominent examples include AKIRA x Supreme, Doraemon x Gucci, and others.

Such releases not only amplifies each entity’s exposure within the opposing community but also cultivates a deeper connection with audiences who share a passion for Japanese anime.

While we’ve previously compiled a list of anime sneaker collaborations back in 2022, we’ve since witnessed numerous notable releases. Now, we’re excited to present a fresh curated selection of the best anime sneaker and streetwear collaborations.

Without delay, here are our top picks as of March 2024:



Much like how protagonist Luffy broke limitations with his Gear 5 transformation, the ONE PIECE series has ascended to greater heights in the hearts of streetwear enthusiasts through its recent collaborations.

In addition to notable partnerships with Seiko, #FR2, and others, their latest collaboration with PUMA for the Suede collection offers a perfect option for those seeking a unique yet versatile footwear addition to their wardrobe.

And it’s not just about Luffy—fans of Blackbeard and the Red Hair Pirates are also in for a treat with the available options in this collection. Each pair draws inspiration from their respective characters, incorporating colorways and print references.

Naruto: Shippuden x ASICS

You can truly sense someone’s love for something when you witness their dedication to it.

For French TV personality and artist Sebastien Abdelhamid, his profound passion for the Naruto: Shippuden series has sparked a series of collaborative releases with the renowned Japanese sportswear label ASICS. Among the trilogy of releases, the latest drop features a GEL-NYC collaboration, themed “FINAL ARC”.

For fans of the Naruto: Shippuden anime series, various design elements inspired by the show are evident, such as the Uzumaki Clan symbol on the shoe tongues and cape flame-inspired panels.

Additionally, for those seeking to channel their inner Hokage, a set of accessories is available for customization according to your preferences.

FRGMT x Pokémon x FENDI

Since the inception of the “THUNDERBOLT PROJECT”, Hiroshi Fujiwara’s fragment design and Pokémon have nurtured a significant bond through various offerings, including collaborations with Moncler and special installments at the “sequence MIYASHITA PARK” hotel in Tokyo.

Now, joining forces with the Italian luxury house FENDI for the ongoing “Friends of FENDI” project, fragment and Pokémon present an extensive range of collaborative apparel items. Notably, departing from the regular lineup of starters, the trio introduces a Year of the Dragon-themed collection, highlighting Dratini, Dragonair, and Dragonite.

Furthermore, complementing the physical collection, the trio unveils an in-game collection via Pokémon GO, enabling players to dress their avatars in their favorite pieces.

Jujutsu Kaisen x Ground Y

Jujutsu Kaisen has emerged as one of the top-grossing anime in recent years, particularly with the introduction of the “Shibuya Incident” arc.

Complementing the series’ dark storyline and distinctive art style, Japanese avant-garde master Yohji Yamamoto has unveiled a capsule collection through his Ground Y brainchild.

Drawing on Yamamoto’s signature silhouettes, such as long shirts, balloon pants, and asymmetrical jackets, the collaborative items feature graphic designs showcasing distinctive icons from the series.

Astro Boy x Onitsuka Tiger

Astro Boy Onitsuka Tiger

In 2023, there was a noticeable surge in interest surrounding Astro Boy, particularly fueled by the American art collective MSCHF’s Big Red Boots release.

Capitalizing on this renewed enthusiasm for the anime franchise, Japanese lifestyle label Onitsuka Tiger unveiled an official collaborative collection as part of their 75th anniversary celebration.

Spanning apparel, footwear, and bags, the partnership offers an extensive range of items that skillfully showcase graphic prints of the robot character alongside the iconic red color, presented in various contemporary fits.

Howl’s Moving Castle x LOEWE

Howl's Moving Castle LOEWE

Capturing the enchanting scenes of Studio Ghibli’s Howl’s Moving Castle is no easy feat, yet Spanish luxury house LOEWE has accomplished just that with their collaborative collection.

Featuring beloved characters such as Howl, Sophie, and Calcifer, the collaboration breathes life into the film’s magical world through a diverse range of hand-crafted apparel, bags, and accessories. Each piece intricately portrays expressive details through print, embroidery, and leather marquetry.

Spirited Away x New Era

While many anime collaborations typically revolve around clothing and footwear, the renowned lifestyle label New Era has taken a clever approach by curating a versatile lineup of headgear and bags in partnership with one of Studio Ghibli’s most acclaimed films to date—Spirited Away.

The duo’s collection showcases iconic characters such as Kaonashi, Haku, and Susuwatari, accentuated by distinctive symbols including neon sign logos and Konpeito candies, all prominent identities featured within the film.

This underscores the versatility of the collection—after all, if even “No-Face” could find a cap handy, it’s a testament to the practicality and appeal of these items.

Princess Mononoke x Levi’s

Princess Mononoke Levi's

Classic anime meets classic denim in an unforgettable collaboration. Studio Ghibli’s Princess Mononoke and Levi’s have joined forces to create an apparel collection described by the Levi’s Design Team as “a love letter” to dedicated fans of the film.

Inspired by characters such as San, Ashitaka, and Nightwalker, as well as the enchanting landscapes found within the film, Levi’s brings these elements to life through mesmerizing graphic prints on a lineup of denims, kimono jackets, and more.

With meticulous attention to detail and unparalleled craftsmanship, this collection truly exemplifies the beauty found in the smallest of things.

Dragon Ball x Uniqlo UT

In honor of the recent passing of Japanese manga artist Akira Toriyama, we would like to give an honorable mention to one of his most notable creations—Dragon Ball.

While the franchise has collaborated with various brands over the years, such as A BATHING APE (BAPE), XLARGE, and adidas, among others, the recent “History of Dragon Ball” collection with Uniqlo UT has struck a chord with fans, evoking nostalgia by reliving iconic scenes from the “Son Goku’s Boyhood” saga to the “Majin Buu” arc.

Additionally, this release also demonstrates that anime collaborations can be accessible and affordable for everyone.

Demon Slayer x Crocs

Demon Slayer has undeniably become one of the most successful anime franchises in recent times. This success was perfectly exemplified by the instant buzz generated when their collaboration with Crocs was initially unveiled.

The release features four key characters from the series—Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke, and Zenitsu—each represented through distinctive prints and Crocs Jibbitz accessories.

Coincidentally, this collection offers a lineup of Echo Clogs and Classic Clogs, perfectly aligning with the ongoing mule trend. This allows individuals to flaunt both style and their love for the anime.


Neon Genesis Evangelion SEVESKIG

Wrapping up our curated list, we must acknowledge the EVANGELION x SEVESKIG collaboration.

Seamlessly integrating the anime’s hallmark iconography with the avant-garde brand’s signature motifs and design language, this collection offers an extensive range of standout t-shirts and cardigans.

Featuring graphic prints of iconic characters such as Rei Ayanami and Shinji Ikari’s Unit-01, the design is complemented by exquisite details such as distressed and layered fabric elements. Additionally, an Asuka Langley tee will be exclusively available via HYPE DROP on the SNKRDUNK App.
