Clarks uses ‘Blaze Kick’ in fire new shoe collaboration with Pokémon

August 5, 2022
Clarks Originals released some electrifying new kicks in collaboration with Pokémon for their Wallabee lineup.
The new shoes come in two colors: black suede and a darkish yellow, and both are debossed with Ash’s trusty companion, Pikachu, in various poses so the “Pokémon Yellow” starter can be with its wearer every step of the way. The heels of the shoes are marked with a Pokéball design.

Kids shoes also appear to be a part of the collection, but only on the company’s U.K. website. The Grip Pearl model sneakers come adorned with a Pokéball on the velcro strap and at the sole. Depending on the style chosen, Kanto classics such as Pikachu, Squirtle or Mewtwo are featured on the heel with different shoe colors to match the Pokémon’s color schemes.

The Pikachu Wallabee retail online for $180. The kids’ shoes range from about 43 to 50 British pounds, or about $55 to $60. 
Pokémon iconography on clothes is nothing new, whether it be T-shirts or dress shirts, to even accessories like wedding rings.
