Pokémon’s 25th anniversary has brought many surprises in the form of collectibles, events, promotions, and more. Before the year ends, Converse is joining in on the celebration with its own collection of Pokémon footwear, apparel, and accessories.
The footwear in the collection is comprised of various styles of the Chuck Taylor All Star. The “First Partners” features a black canvas upper with the Gen 1 starters (Squirtle, Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Pikachu) printed on the laterals. Other Gen 1 favorites, Jigglypuff and Meowth, make cameo appearances on the medial, affecting the mood of the starters on the other side. This style is available in adult, little kids, and toddler sizing.
The “Poké Ball” Chuck Taylor comes dressed in white canvas with a bold all-over print featuring the same cast of Pokémon. The style also features Poké Ball ankle patches on the lateral sides. This one comes in adult and little kid sizing. Rounding out the footwear is the Chuck Taylor All-Star Easy-On for toddlers, available in a pink Jigglypuff colorway or a yellow Pikachu colorway.
In the apparel section we have a selection of unisex tops, including a black “25th Celebration” hoodie featuring Pikachu and a tour graphic on the back listing the various regions in the Pokémon world. Other styles include a pink Jigglypuff crewneck sweater, an off-white Pikachu tee, a red “Pokémon Team” long-sleeve tee, and a black “Pokémon Patch” long-sleeve tee. Rounding out the collection is a Pikachu camp cap and a Pikachu-themed backpack covered in thunderbolts.
The Pokémon x Converse collection drops December 10th on Converse.com (10am EST) and at select retailers.
