Shared via Jean Carlos’ @solebyjc Instagram account, the Pikachu-infused sneaker sees the lovable mascot appearing as a print throughout the upper, while both the lateral and medial sides feature an embroidery of the character. Contrasting yellow hits, also representing the fan favorite Pokémon, can be found on the heel cap and lace aglets. Finally collaborative adidas and Pokémon co-branding has been stitched to the front of the tongue tabs, while a Pokéball can be found on the backside.
Along with this Pikachu model, a Squirtle iteration is also set to release. Keep it locked here for official photos and a release date. In the meantime, check out the sneaker above for a 90’s nostalgia trip.
