Fila have unveiled a new style collaboration with Nintendo’s Pokemon with a new Court Deluxe Low-Top styled sneaker. They include plenty of references to Pokemon, from the logo on the tongues and references to characters like Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur on the heel tab.
The sneakers also come with a special limited edition box with both the Fila and Pokemon branding (if you care about these things?)…
Plenty of people seem to be looking forward to the release…

However, there’s one problem – they are currently only being released in South Korea! That said, word has it that there should be a worldwide release to follow.
What do you think of them?
To be honest, we’re not really feeling the velcro straps – it makes them look even more like they should be for 5-year-olds…
