Japanese fashion retailer Esperanza has created an adorable capsule of women’s shoes inspired by everybody’s favorite Pokémon character, Pikachu. The assortment includes three ballet flats and a towering pair of yellow platform pumps.
The flats, perfect for hitting the streets to chase down a few creatures, feature simple rubber soles. There are two yellow styles, one adorned with 3-D Pikachu ears and tail, and the other decorated with an all-over novelty print. The third flat design features a red Pokéball print with Pikachu faces on the toe. For an edgier look, the Mary Jane-style pumps are detailed with 3-D ears on the toe and a dangling lightning-shaped tail on the heel.
Each pair in the collection comes packaged in a special Pokémon box. Priced from about $93 to $123, the shoes are available for preorder now on Esperanza’s e-commerce site, Esp-shoe.com. Later this month, they will be on the shelves at most of Esperanza’s brick-and-mortar store locations throughout Japan, including the brand’s flagship in Tokyo’s Shibuya 109 building, where a Pikachu photo booth will be installed for a limited time.
So go out and get them. Because you never know: Maybe they’ll bring a little luck to your game.
