    Fila has teamed up with Pokémon to create the cutest pairs of shoes ever with officially licensed Pokémon sneakers.

    Teased back in February and confirmed earlier this month from Fila Korea’s official Instagram account, the Fila x Pokémon project will soon launch the “limited collaboration” Court Deluxe shoes in South Korea.

    Confirmed designs take inspiration from beloved Pokémon characters Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Jigglypuff.

    According to Kotaku, there has been no announcement yet for a global release, so it is highly probable that the collection will only be made available in South Korea, at least for the time being.

    Those already salivating at the thought of owning an adorable pair of Pikachu shoes would have to cross their fingers for now.
