Pokemon and Puma Have Collaborated New Sneakers
In a collaboration that will debut later this month, The Pokemon Company and PUMA have designed a line of footwear inspired by the popular franchise. Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle are the names of the four beginning Pokemon featured on the footwear from the Kanto area collection.
The footwear lineup features five unique styles (Pikachu is special enough to have two different designs). Each pair of sneakers features an illustration of a starter Pokemon with a unique colour scheme.
The picture below depicts one such design.
There is a wide variety of shoe styles available. Pikachu fans can choose between the RS-X and Rider FV designs for their shoe boxes. There are also Bulbasaur and Charmander sneakers, as well as Squirtle riders’, Squirtle, and Suspension models.
More importantly, the shoes in this limited edition collaboration series are available in sizes for adults, children, and even infants.
The Pokemon Company has collaborated with a shoe manufacturer to release a range of Pokemon-themed All-Star Light sneakers in Japan.
A similar pair of Sonic the Hedgehog shoes were made by PUMA and Sega a few years ago.
