Images of new Pokémon sneakers leaked on Instagram hints of a collaboration between Adidas and the iconic ’90s anime series and video game franchise.
Last week, Instagram user Hugokickz unveiled photos of what appears to be the first look of a potential Pokémon X Adidas collab.

The images showed two designs of casual low-top sneakers that feature popular Pokémon characters Pikachu and Squirtle.
They appear to be a Pokémon version of Adidas Originals’ Campus silhouette in all-white leather with co-branded text on the tongue.
Both pairs were designed with a gray all-over pattern over white that features illustrations of each respective character in various poses. Each pair used either yellow and blue heel tabs to represent the colors of Pikachu and Squirtle.
In place of traditional Three Stripes branding is an embroidery of the colorful characters on the medial side panel.
While no official information has been released as of this writing, social media buzz has got fans of the anime franchise and footwear label assuming that a collaboration may be underway to promote the upcoming Detective Pikachu film.
It is important to note, however, that neither The Pokémon Company nor Adidas has confirmed anything on the rumored potential collaboration at this time.
