Pokémon as fashion has never gone out of style, Hannah Anderson releasing a line this year as well.
Each shoe design is unique to the Pokémon it’s representing and will be available in both adult and children’s sizes. Ever-popular, Pikachu is the only one that gets two styles to choose from. But they all look amazing. Depending on the price point, these will be flying off the shelves. And what better way to play “Pokémon Go!” by showing off your Pokéfashion.
The designs themselves are very tasteful, making them appealing to both children and adults. Blubasaur’s various muted and pastel greens, for instance, is aesthetically pleasing and can accent an variety of outfits. Even the soles have been designed to represent the unique attributes of the fire, grass, water, and electric types.
Each shoe comes with a charm. Something that’s sure to drive kids crazy for them, and a nice addition to house or car keys. The inside contains a silhouette of the Pokémon itself, and the heels are adorned with a symbol to represent their element.
The shoes will be available at The Pokémon Center stores as well as other outlets. While no official price has been announced, Kid’s Foot Locker has the shoes listed at $90. The sneakers will become available November 12th. So grab your Pokéballs and trainer hats, and get yours before they’re gone!
