If you’re a fan of classic Chucks, or someone who’s always wanted shoes emblazoned with their favorite pocket monster, then you’re in luck because Pokémon and Converse are teaming up again to do just that.
Back in January, Converse launched a line of shoes that featured Jigglypuff, Meowth, Squirtle, and more, and now, the company has announced its next line of Pokémon shoes, as reported by kotaku. This time, the iconic Chucks feature a single Pokémon in each 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 main color of each Pokémon they represent – the Pikachu shoes are bright yellow, the Eevee shoes a tan brown, the Charizard pair are fire-type orange, and the chucks Mewtwo are an elegant, soft pinkish purple. Unfortunately, all signs point to this drop being unique to Japan.
First, they appear to be only available on Converse’s Japan website, with all four pairs expected to be released this week for roughly $75. There’s also the fact that the shoes feature the Japanese naming of each Pokémon’s name, and That’s why Charizard shoes say Lizardon. However, this might just be a style decision, so maybe there’s 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 browse the Converse Japan website to secure a pair (or four pairs) of your own.
In the meantime, check out the latest Pokemon x Converse team and then read about the Pokemon Violet and Pokemon Scarlet reveal after that.
