Pokemon Socks Put the Paldea Starters on Your Feet

Pokemon Socks

Warm and cover your feet with a set of Paldean introductory Pokemon. A new set of Pokemon socks is debuting at the Pokemon Center online store focuses on the starter Pokemon from Scarlet and Violet, among others.

The lead items in the new batch of designs are sets of “mascot socks” based on the Scarlet and Violet starters: Sprigatito (aka Nyaoha), Fuecoco (aka Hogator), and Quaxly (aka Kuwassu). Each pair features a plush face of the Pokemon near the opening of the sock. When worn, the face will appear above the foot and on the leg of the wearer. Two versions of each starter sock exist, based on the buyer’s length preference.

Other mascot socks based on non-Paldean Pokemon like Spheal, Togepi, and Mew are also available.

Two pairs of short socks feature scenes. One pair features Fidough in a pile of bread, and another features Paldean Woopers digging.

More low-key designs are also available at the Pokemon Center online store. The newest ones are based on Gengar, Diglett, Snorlax, Ditto, and all nine extant Evee variants. These socks have a mostly plain exterior but feature small designs and logo-style patches based on the faces of the relevant Pokemon.

Tabi socks, socks with a pocket for the big toe, also appear. Two new pairs feature designs based on Hisuian Growlithe and Hisuian Voltorb and Electrode.

The new socks are available in Japan via the Pokemon Center online store. Pokemon Scarlet, Violet and Pokemon Legends Arceus are available on the Nintendo Switch.
