Only 2 months till my birthday, so...

Good morning everyone,

Both today and tomorrow are going to see highs in the mid-teens and today will be mostly sunny with cloudy periods while tomorrow will be mostly cloudy with sunny periods. Don't get too used to the warm weather just yet though. From Tuesday we'll see highs drop down to around 10C and remain chilly all week.

To the casual observer, Doraemon must appear to be the national mascot of Japan; his image can be found everywhere. Doraemon’s face or colour scheme crops up on goods ranging from McDonald’s toys to PC cushions to face masks.

For those unfamiliar with his story, Doraemon is a robot cat sent back from the future to help schoolboy Nobita navigate the trials and tribulations of everyday life by producing a series of amazing devices.

While we may have to wait a little longer for a genuine “anywhere door” or “memory bread,” we can now walk, run, and exercise in style with these new Doraemon Reebok trainers, which certainly catch the eye.

Coinciding with the Japanese release of the latest Doraemon movie, Doraemon’s Great Adventure to the South Pole (which opened yesterday), these funky trainers are a collaboration between Reebok Instapump Fury and design company atmos and also went on sale.


But, fashionistas may ask, what could possibly go with these powder-blue shoes?

The answer may be yet more Doraemon-themed blueness. Perhaps in the form of this Kway jacket. It looks a little bit thin for Antarctic adventuring, but perfect for a Hiroshima spring day.


▼ The shoes proclaim the wearer’s love of Dorayaki, Doraemon’s favourite snack.
Whether this will result in being handed the delicious snacks is unclear.


▼ The pump resembles Doraemon’s signature bell.


▼ Even the inner soles feature Doraemon.


The shoes are available from the Reebok Harajuku store or the atmos website and retail at Y21,600, including tax. While at time of writing the atmos website only had sizes up to 24.5cm there is the option to request sizes up to 30.

The Kway jacket is also available from the atmos website for Y13,824. Perfect for your favorite English teacher...well, not the shoes so much, but the jacket I'd wear for sure.

Have a great day!
