The Pikashoe is one of more than a hundred creatures currently being captured in the colourful sneaker Pokédex.
With Pokémon Go fans continuing to catch ’em all by walking great distances in cities around the world, gamers need patience, tenacity, and a good pair of kicks to get them to all the places they need to go. Finally, the world has footwear that’s custom-built for the task, thanks to a creative Tumblr and Instagram account called Pokémon Nike ID, or PokeID, which has a huge array of Pokémon-themed shoes, all created though Nike’s online customization service, Nike ID. Fans are being invited to add their own ideas to the growing collection to help complete the 151 Pokémon listed in the PokeID Pokédex on the Tumblr account, so anyone can purchase their favourite Pokémon shoe at the click of a button. Let’s take a look at some of the ideas fans have come up with so far!

All you have to do is click on your favourite design, and you’ll be taken to the Nike ID customisation page, where the style, colour and components have already been entered, meaning you just have to add it to the cart to make a purchase. The service is available internationally, so everyone can have Pokémon shoes delivered to their door!
