If you’re a fan of classic Chucks or someone who’s always wanted to have shoes decorated with your favorite pocket monsters on them, you’re in luck because Pokémon and Converse are teaming up again. to do that.
Back in January, Converse has released a line of shoes featuring Jigglypuff, Meowth, Squirtle, etc.And now, the company has announced its next line of Pokémon shoes, as reported by Kotaku. This time around, the iconic Chucks feature a unique Pokémon per pair. There are Pikachu shoes, Eevee shoes, Charizard shoes and Mewtwo shoes, and all four pairs look amazing.
As you can see in the images above, the shoes are designed to match the primary color of each Pokémon they represent – the Pikachu boots are bright yellow, the Eevee boots are tan-ish brown, the Charizard shoes are has a fiery orange color, and Mewtwo chucks has a stylish and gentle pinkish purple color. Unfortunately, all signs of this decline are exclusive to Japan.
First of all, they appear to be available only on Converse Japan’s website, with all four pairs expected to hit shelves this week for around $75. There’s also the fact that the shoes have the Japanese nomenclature of each Pokémon’s name, which is why the Charizard shoe says Lizardon. However, that might just be a style decision so there’s probably a chance these shoes will make their way to the West at some point in the future. For now, though, it looks like you’ll need to navigate the Converse Japan website to purchase a pair (or four pairs) of your own.
