FILA Korea reveals a new exclusive sneaker collaboration with the long-lived popular Japanese anime series, Pokémon. The footwear features five colors representing different favorite characters including: Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Balbasaur, and JigglyPuff.
Pokémon comes from the Japanese title Pocket Monsters created in 1997 and advertised as a television series based on Nintendo’s Pokémon video games. The series was split into six chronological sequences and continues to run today. On the other hand, FILA is a major world-wide sportswear brand now based in Korea – which explains the collaboration.
The shoe itself has a matching color lining with a Pokeball tongue tag and motif on the heel. Additionally, the kicks have a customized shoe box that resemble the actual Pokeball. This exclusive collection does not have a release date but will be available online and at select South Korean stores.
This capsule has a true aesthetic and will be adored by children and the authentic Pokémon fans.
