Converse surprises the collaboration between Pokémon sneakers and clothing
PokÃ©mon is teaming up with Converse to launch a collection of sneakers, plus a hoodie, to celebrate the franchise’s twenty-fifth anniversary.
As part of the celebration of PokÃ©mon’s twenty-fifth anniversary, it’s teaming up with famous shoe company Converse to offer a selection of PokÃ©mon-inspired shoes.
The shoe collection, slated for release on December 10, can be viewed via Hypebeast, where each design highlights a PokÃ©mon from the game’s first-generation region, Kanto. The PokÃ©mon that adorn the sneakers also have a strong connection to the Pokemon animated series, with Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Meowth and Jigglypuff all highlighted.
The collection reinvents the Chuck Taylor All Star range from Converse with PokÃ©mon designs. The first ankle-high design gives off a classic vibe, with black-and-white images of all of the previously mentioned PokÃ©mon; a PokÃ©ball color also embellishes the shoe near the ankle. The second high-ankle shoe pays homage to the Gen 1 starter PokÃ©mon, including Pikachu, as they form a line in their true colors on black fabric. Meanwhile, a Jigglypuff sole appears on the instep of the shoe near the heel.
Two vibrant low top sneakers take inspiration from Jigglypuff and Pikachu. The Velcro closure shoes are available in Fairy Pink and Electric Yellow for both PokÃ©mon, respectively. Finally, there’s a black “25th Celebration Tour” hoodie featuring the franchise’s mascot, Pikachu, sparingly decorated with the classic PokÃ©mon lightning motif. The back of the hoodie also features fake tour dates for each of the PokÃ©mon regions, from Kanto to Galar. Other garments, not pictured on Hypebeast, include “a sherpa-lined Jigglypuff crew neck, PokÃ©mon Team and Pikachu t-shirts, and a range of accessories from backpacks to camp caps.”
PokÃ©mon’s twenty-fifth anniversary celebrations continued throughout 2021. Recently a new PokÃ©mon Trading Card Expansion game released, aptly named Celebrations. The new expansion set includes classic cards for Umbreon, Charizard, and the popular Pikachu birthday card. To further celebrate the quarter-century anniversary, the Gen 4 remakes, based on Sinnoh, Brilliant diamond and Shiny pearl, were released on November 19. Current main series games have spruced up the games with a new Chibi art style and reimagined Grand Underground.
The Pokemon the franchise began in 1996 with the release of Pocket Monsters: Red and Green, which would later be published as PokÃ©mon Red and Blue versions. The collectible card game first appeared in Japan in the same year, while the animated series starring Ash Ketchum and his Pikachu began airing in 1997. Both made it to the United States in 1998. .
