Pokémon company launches Eevee family socks
After all the rage of Pokémon Go, the much-loved franchise is back for more with a brand new merchandise item. This line of socks will not only keep your feet and toes warm, but you'll also make some new friends in the form of your favourite 3D Pokémon characters.
A few different variations of these foot warmers are available on eBay, like a cute little Pikachu, Flareon, Litwick, Banette, Jolteon or Vaporeon pair. Amazon seems to also sell a Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon and Sylveon pair.
Perhaps the most popular of the bunch, though, are the Eevee socks. These socks come in both a pair that includes a smaller and larger plush 3D character. The two pairs make it look like a whole Eevee nuclear family: two kids, a mom and a dad. All they're missing is a small Eevee house with a backyard and an Eevee dog (that is, if Pokémon are allowed to have pets).
Now, if you don't know who any of these characters are, you're not alone. I, myself, am not at all a Pokémon fan, but would still buy this range of socks in a heartbeat. I do like unique socks, and these little buddies are about as fun as they get. Plus, the little characters are really adorable.
The socks look like they hit a bit above the ankle, so they won't give you any blisters that the lower cut ones will. And the fluffy 3D characters look like they hit right above the tongue of your shoe, so it looks like they're peering out of a little bed - and the tongue of your shoe is the blankie.
Priced between £15-20, these socks make the perfect gift for any Pokémon fan. All you need now are some matching shoes and you're fit to be a Pokémon trainer.
