It took ‘em a while to confirm, but adidas’ supercharged Dragon Ball Z collection will undoubtedly go down as one of year’s biggest drops. Comprising of seven of Team Trefoil's newest models, the collection pays homage to the legendary manga’s favourite characters with a series of uncanny colourways emblazoned with signature motifs (albeit with some glaring omissions).
So, the success of the adi x DBZ link up got us thinking — what if Nike did their own anime-inspired colab? And, what if it was a Pokémon mashup? We're pretty sure it'd send a thundershock of epic proportions through the sneakersphere. No doubt, hypebeasts would be lookin' to catch 'em all.
With 150 OG pocket monsters to choose from (does anyone actually care about the others?), Beaverton would’ve had a hard time selecting just seven to rep the Swoosh. Lucky for them, we’ve done the hard work and whipped up our own Nikémon lineup. Which one would you Pika-choose?
