Naruto is easily one of the most popular anime shows and Japanese manga book series of the last decade. To say the show had an impact on American pop culture is an understatement. The generation of kids that spent their early years watching Naruto has grown up and are expressing their love for the show in new ways. Including fashion and other brand collabs.

The latest of which is Illest which has just announced a new collection of cross-branded Naruto-inspired goods.
The first item to kick off its collection is a steering wheel which Illest says is inspired by Naruto’s trademark “Rasengan” technique. The 350mm diameter wheel features Illest and Naruto branding as well as the “Leaf Village” symbol stitched on the wheel rim and on the wheel hub.
The wheel features other ninja iconography such as kunais and shurikens.
If you’re interested in the wheel then we suggest you move faster than the Fourth Hokage and pick it up ASAP. Illest is only producing 100 of these wheels and once they are gone they will stay gone, believe it!
A Naruto x Illest wheel will set you back $380 and will ship within 10 to 12 business days.
As we previously mentioned, this is not the first time a fashion brand has collaborated with the “Number One Hyperactive Knucklehead Ninja.” In 2019, Black Panther actor Michael B Jordan was the face of a Naruto collaboration with Coach.
We’ve also seen custom, one-off creations at car shows with owners re-upholstering their seats with fabric featuring symbols from the “Akatsuki” or the fan emblem of the Uchiha clan.
What other items do you what to see from Illest’s collab with Naruto? Let us know in the comments below or tweet to us at @MotorworldHype.
In the meantime, stay tuned. We’ll let you know as soon as the next piece in the collection drops!
