Yesterday, we reported that Original Stitch teamed up with Pokémon to launch a dress shirt line based on the popular franchise. Well, it looks like Pokémon’s most iconic creature will make people envious of your new sneakers. Clothing line Glamb revealed the stylish (and adorable) footwear will launch next month. The sneakers feature Pikachu’s ears in the front and the tail sticking out of the back.
Kotaku’s reports that the shoes will run for $250 USD. If the shoes are not your cup of tea, there are some intriguing looking sweaters to indulge over. There’s a Pikachu sweater with the front featuring its iconic eyes and cheeks, with the back including the tale. There are also sweaters inspired by Jigglypuff and Charizard.
Pokémon is more popular than it’s ever been. The games continue to impress, with Let’s Go: Pikachu and Let’s Go: Eevee selling 3 million copies in the first week. Additionally, a mainline Pokémon game is in development for Switch and Pokémon: Detective Pikachu will hit theaters this May. Between multimedia and apparel, Pokémon continues to take over the world.
