FILA Set to Release Pokémon-Themed Sneakers in South Korea
A sneaker collaboration that is too hard to pass on to.
A cute sneaker collaboration has arrived in town, so get ready to catch them all. FILA and Pokémon have announced their collaboration and is set to release a set of officially branded Pokémon sneakers. However, this is a “limited collaboration” that is only available in South Korea, Kotaku reports.
According to High Snobiety, the brand’s classic shoe, the Court Deluxe low-top, dons a white colourway and is designed to have focal points — the tongue and heel. The tongue is designed with the famous Pokéball, which is used to catch Pokémon, while the heel shows reference to Pokémon characters, namely Pikachu, Squirtle, Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Jigglypuff. The Pokémon colour of each pair is extended from the tongue and heel up to the inner parts of the shoes. FILA’s Court Deluxe features an adjustable Velcro strap system and leather construction. Aside from the shoes, its box also has the beloved Pokébal design on it.
The collaboration is available at FILA locations in South Korea. For fans living outside the country who are excited to get their hands on one, there is no news yet if there will be a release outside the country.
