Pokémon celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and as part of the festivities marking the huge milestone, the Japanese media franchise has teamed up with Converse for an adorable line of footwear and apparel featuring the most popular pocket monsters.
One of the cute sneakers from the collection is the Pokémon x Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star “First Partners,” which is styled with a black canvas upper and comes decorated with images of Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, Meowth, and Jigglypuff.
There’s also a “Poke Ball” sneaker, which is presented with a white upper and all-over black and white graphics of the aforementioned pocket monsters. A Poke Ball is embedded into the lateral side of the shoe near the ankle collars.
The collection also includes sneakers especially made for Pikachu and Jigglypuff stans. The bright yellow Pikachu shoe features the Pokémon’s adorable face on the toe box, complete with its long and pointy ears. The Jigglypuff shoe, on the other hand, boasts a carnation pink upper filled with musical note prints.
Completing the Pokémon x Converse collection is an assortment of clothing items, including long-sleeve sweatshirts, t-shirts, hoodies, and caps.
“The stand-out piece is the Pokemon 25th Celebration Hoodie, which comes printed with ‘electrified’ Converse and Pokémon graphics and ‘tour stops’ from the world of Pokémon on the backside,” read a portion of a press release from Converse. “Elsewhere in the apparel category you can find a sherpa-lined Jigglypuff crewneck, Pokémon Team and Pikachu tees and a range of accessories from backpacks to camp caps.”
The entire Pokémon x Converse collection will be available for purchase at Converse.com and other authorized retailers starting December 10th.
