Converse and Pokémon have teamed up before for adults and toddlers, but their latest collab is for the kids in Japan — a brand-new Child All-Star Light lineup of six shoe designs for the young’uns of 日本.

Featuring Pikachu, Eevee, Mew, and Piplup, each adorned with a different flavor of Poké Ball, the collection offers stylishly simple designs and color schemes for little ones to walk around in. There’s also a pair of glow-in-the-dark sneaker designs, which just look rad as hell. I wish I had those when I was seven.



The sneakers come out this week on April 20th for ¥6,600 each, or just over $50. If you’d like some Poké-Converse yourself, be sure to check out the collection.
