Trainers, are you ready to show off your favorite Pokemon? Pokemon and Converse have teamed up to create a special collection featuring shoes, hoodies, shirts and more. As of now, the Pokemon Converse collab will feature two different pairs of shoes. “First on the roster is the Pokemon x Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star “First Partners” which is styled with a black canvas upper and comes decorated with images of Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, Meowth and Jigglypuff.”
The other shoe, sporting the “Poke Ball” colorway, has a white background with black outlines of Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, Meowth, and Jigglypuff. “On the lateral walls, a Poke Ball is embedded into the shoe near the ankle collars”. According to the images shown, both shoes will be high-top silhouettes.

According to a statement from Converse, the line will have more than just shoes. There will be plenty of Pokemon-inspired apparel to delight trainers of all ages, and they seem really excited for the Celebration Hoodie:
Die-hard fans can also choose adventurous apparel items to add to their wardrobe here. The stand-out piece is the Pokemon 25th Celebration Hoodie which comes printed with “electrified” Converse and Pokemon graphics and “tour stops” from the world of Pokémon on the backside. Elsewhere in the apparel category you can find a sherpa-lined Jigglypuff crewneck, Pokemon Team and Pikachu tees and a range of accessories from backpacks to camp caps.”
The Pokemon Converse collection will be available on Friday, December 10th, 2021 at Converse outlets and other authorized retailers. Just in time for the holidays!
