Wow, these are surprisingly tame. Given the crazy nature of the Gintama series, and the fact that this is Japan (where the put character images on pillows, cars, and whatever-the-hell), I was totally expecting to see Gintoki's face plastered on the sides of these.

I can totally picture a Gintama episode in which they'll make fun of this merchandising Laughing

I'm not the sort who buys much anime merchandise (beyond manga and the occasional dvd, that is), but those are really cool.
Sort of want.

Well, guaranteed these shoes won't get stolen, unlike the classic Air Jordans. Laughing

Holy crap, Sweet_Mercury, that hoodie is awesome. It's like cosplay and everyday wear smashed wonderfully together.

ETA: I'd buy and wear it, just not at that sort of price.

I love Gintama and Gintoki is my favourite character! His outfit is so cool, and these sneakers totally take the best and most recognisable part of his outfit and look great! I'd buy these! If they didn't cost that much >.<

That's actually quite nice. Subtle enough to wear everyday, but with enough detail that fans would recognize it.
