New Pokémon Converse sneakers are a stylish collaboration

The Pokémon Company has partnered with Converse Japan to bring out a stylish collection of Pokémon sneakers.

As reported by Kotaku, the set of four designs – based on Pikachu, Eevee, Charizard, and Mewtwo – has only been announced for Japan and costs 9,900 yen (around $75).

The Pokémon side of the collaboration isn’t overkill, with each pocket monster only providing its color palette. A small pixel art version of each Pokémon is also stamped on the tongue, with basic Pokédex details printed near the heel.

Despite the minimalist design, many small details convince Pokémon fans. Each shoe comes with a lace tag based on various Poké Balls, with Pikachu getting a normal version, Eevee getting a Big Ball, Charizard an Ultra Ball, and Mewtwo, of course, getting a Master Ball.

The shoe box has a similarly sleek and subtle Pokémon design, as it’s color evocative of a Poké Ball, red on top and white on bottom, alongside the Converse x Pokémon logo on the lid.

Pokémon is no stranger to collaborations, having worked on official Pokémon skateboards, Katy Perry tracks, Tamagotchis, and even commercial airlines.

It’s also not the only major gaming franchise to get a clothing line recently, as Uniqlo has released a line of Final Fantasy t-shirts. Curiously, Naoki Yoshida, the producer of Final Fantasy 16, even used the clothing line to announce that his game is in the final stages of development.
