Following a long line of collaborations celebrating its 25th anniversary, Pokémon now returns with another footwear collaboration with PUMA. Having partnered with Clarks Originals for Wallabees and Crocs for Clogs, the upcoming series delivers five sneaker styles inspired by the Kanto starter Pokémon and Pikachu.
Bulbasaur and Pikachu appear on the PUMA Rider FV modern classic, Charmander takes up the Slipstream Lo 1987 basketball shoes, and Squirtle is featured on PUMA Suedes featuring icy translucent soles. Each silhouette takes up the distinct hues of their respective Pokémons with the element types featured on the heel tabs and face graphics appearing across the tongue tabs, charms, and co-branded insoles with additional details including Pokédex numbers printed on the inner side of the tongues.
The five Pokémon x PUMA styles are set to release November 12 via PUMA, Footlocker, and select retailers in adult and children sizes.
Elsewhere in footwear, New Balance 9060 surfaces in “Burgundy.”
