Fila launches Pokémon-inspired trainers

The trainers are currently only available in South Korea 

Pokémon GO - New Pokémon Trailer

No longer confined to children’s light-up trainers, Pokémon-inspired shoes will soon come in adult sizes.

The result of a collaboration between Fila and Pokémon in South Korea, the new shoes will feature your favourite Pokémon characters - and you’ll want to catch them all.

The new Court Deluxe kicks are inspired by Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Jigglypuff.

But because these are for adults, the designs are quite minimalistic - perfect for showing off your love of Pokémon while maintaining a level of maturity.

The trainers are mostly white, except for the backs which display a pastel colour and a Pokémon character.

And in the front, the tongue of the shoes features a small Poké ball.

The colour range currently includes a yellow sneaker for Pikachu, an orange pair for Charmander, a light pink version for Jigglypuff, green for Bulbasaur, and a light blue for Squirtle.

As for the price, the trainers retail for 52,000 won (£49, $69), according to the Fila website.

And the best part? The sneakers use velcro straps instead of shoelaces.

Unfortunately, the release is currently only in South Korea - and there is no word on whether the trainers will be released internationally.

Hopefully, we can get our hands on the Pokémon shoes soon.
