For all of us crazed Pokémon fans, FILA is bringing us sneakers with some of our favorite Pokémon. In the style of the classic Court Deluxe with designs for Squirtle, Charmander, Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Bulbasaur, the trainers are packaged in a box that boasts the notorious Pokéball, each shoe has colored interiors that match the Pokémon, velcro straps instead of traditional laces, a sleek image of a Pokéball on the tongue of the sneaker and an overall simple design that easily allows the sneakers to go with any outfit. Not into subtly designed sneakers? These shoes could even be cool as a collector’s piece.
The only problem is these sneakers will be hard to catch. The collaboration is exclusive with FILA Korea and only available on their website for now. No word yet on when the sneaks will make their international debut, but fan loyalty will definitely be tested to see how quickly the shoes make their way to the U.S.
Would you cop these sneakers today if they were available in the US?
