Currently, in Boruto’s manga, the Hidden Leaf Village doesn’t have much time to worry about shoes, but instead has to contend with the machinations of a new version of the Kara organization. While former leader Jigen was killed thanks to Naruto, Boruto, Sasuke, and Kawaki, the villainous Code member seeks revenge and has gathered new ninjas in order to exact revenge and try to achieve the goals of the Otsutsuki.
On the fashion front, it was announced earlier this year that Japanese company Mizuno was creating sneakers using the Naruto brand, but this potential collaboration with Nike is sure to blow some fans away.
