Adidas’ Pokémon Trainer Collaboration Sells Out Like Hotcakes
A new collaboration between Adidas and The Pokémon Company will let you live your Pokémon trainer dreams — if you can get your hands on them.
With its stylish tracksuits, shirts and shoes, the new Pokémon x Adidas collection will make you at least look the part of an actual Pokémon trainer. The collection, which taps into fans’ nostalgia with 8-bit graphic designs of the characters, has got styles for both the young and the young at heart.
Among the highlights of the collection is a black tracksuit which is available for ages 8 to 16. Made of a soft brushed fabric, the set of a jacket and joggers are actually printed with the words “POKEMON TRAINER” on the back. Adidas’ signature three white stripes are even embellished with Pokémon characters along the sleeves. If available online, the tracksuit may go for over $60.
The collection also features an assortment of comfy Pokemon T-shirts made of cotton jersey. Your favorite Pokémon characters are featured in a variety of designs and colors that both young and old fans can appreciate. In one of the designs, five Pokémon characters are printed on top of a large Adidas logo.
This collection also features a new sneaker design for teens and kids that has a pixelated 8-bit Pikachu on the side of the heel. The shoes’ inner lining is also adorned with various Pokémon characters. For the youth, the Pokémon themed shoes are versions of the Advantage and Hoops Mid 2.0 shoes while the ones for adults were from the Phosphere line.
