The All Star Light Pokemon Hi silhouette will have four distinct colorways, aimed at adults. Each colorway is inspired by one of the four legendary pokemon, namely Pikachu, Eevee, Mewtwo, and Lizardon. Lightweight and sleek, the shoes feature the injection EVA sole unit. They are emblazoned with the name, height, book number, and weight of the Pokemon they are inspired by, for that extra touch.

The children's sizes come in two silhouettes, namely the Child All-Star Light Pokemon V-1 HI and the Child All Star Light Pokemon V-1 OX. Inspired by Pikachu, Eevee, Piplup, and Mew, the children's sneakers feature an ankle patch that changes into a Monster Ball, Master Ball, or Hyper Ball depending on the angle.

The sock liner features a Pikachu-oriented graphic on the left foot. The shoes also feature a removable antibacterial cup insole and a velcro tab to make the shoes easy to wear and take off. The Child All-Star Light Pokemon V-1 HI retails for ¥ 6,600 ( approx $50.59).

Lastly, the Child All-Star Light Pokemon V-1 OX comes in two colorways, black and white. The sneaker silhouette of Pikachu features an electric type and phosphorescent print of Inazuma's design.
