Prepare for Battle in Fila's Official Pokémon Shoes

posted on by Jennifer Sherman

Anime News Network's merchandise coverage sponsored by Tokyo Otaku Mode.

South Korean sporting goods manufacturer Fila is gearing up to catch 'em all. The company is collaborating with Pokémon to release official “limited collaboration” Court Deluxe sneakers.

Fila recently announced the collaboration, and it appears the special shoes will only be available in South Korea. The shoes will have designs inspired by Pikachu (of course), as well as Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, and Jigglypuff. Each pair will come in its own Poké Ball box.

Fans also created unofficial Pokémon athletic shoes with Nike's online customization service Nike ID in 2016.

Fila is credited with clothing assistance for The Garden of Words anime film and a "special thanks" in the live-action Initial D film.
