Kicks (シャンク, Shyanku, Shank) is a skunk who appeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. He shines shoes for a living in the city on fair weather days. He is such a good shoe shiner that some animals that enlist his services are unsure that they are wearing the same shoes as when he began. He can be found outside a run-down building beside Lloid's auction house. He wears a brown hat with matching brown suspenders. He also has an Australian accent. In the UK version he has a Cockney accent.
If the player buys his services for 500 Bells, Kicks' shoe-shine will change the color of the player's shoes to match his or her hair or outfit (not including pattern-made shirts which produce the defaults). If the shoes do not change colors, he will not charge for his services. There are only a select number of shoe patterns which can match each hair and outfit combo. He can match by style or by what color the player is wearing. The name "Kicks" is a reference on the slang word for tennis shoes, "kicks." He does not appear if it is raining or snowing. Even if the player time travels, he still appears.
