The Nike logo on his shoes are suspect. That's what makes me think its fan made. I dont recall hearing anything involving Nike and Sonic the movie.
You'd think that Sega or Paramount would have torpedoed it already if it was fake, but they've both been silent. Also, the leaked model matches up with an interview that the movies producers did in December, where they said that Sega was unhappy with the eyes of the model that they created and that they were redesigning his shoes to try and interpret what a modern day, real world Sonic might wear.
The worst thing about the shoes is that there is a better looking pair of Nike shoes that he could have wore, which look far more like the shoes he has always wore, so if they have a brand deal with Nike that forces them to use Nike shoes, why not use the pair that actually looks right?
Hopefully Yuji Naka is right and they purposefully leaked the model to gauge the communities' reaction before deciding rather to use the new model they designed or a model that looks more like traditional Sonic before they actually spend millions of dollars adding him into the movies scenes via CGI.
