As Detective Pikachu approaches its global release later this month, Kong: Skull Island director, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, was seen sporting a custom Pikachu-inspired pair of the Off-White™ x Air Jordan 1 at the film’s premiere.

The custom kicks come from New York-based artist stompinggroundcustoms, known for his widely popular Dragon Ball Super: Broly-inspired kicks. These AJ’s sport Pikachu’s iconic electric bolt tail instead of the classic check, and of course is dipped in a yellow and white colorway. True to his several other designs, the kicks feature bolden lines throughout the model, highlighting the toebox and outsoles.
