If you are even thinking about copping a pair, you're addicted.

It’s no secret here at MERRY JANE we’re a little obsessed with Pokémon Go. True Pokémasters are those who are well equipped to catch them all, so we’d be remiss if we didn’t pass on knowledge allowing you the best possible chance to keep your Pokemon game strong.

Capitalizing on the latest Pokémon Go craze, one company is producing sneakers with built-in technology to let you know when Pokemon are near.

Tech company Vixole has introduced the Matrix sneakers which feature a thin LED layer and will vibrate when a Pokémon is near, even if your phone is pocketed.

Not only limited to Pokémon, the sneakers link up to Google Maps and vibrate to signal a turn while navigating the streets. They also vibrate when you receive a text or call. The shoes’ LED display is completely customizable making for unlimited design capabilities on the heel.

Both functional and fashionable, the Vixole Matrix will retail for $200.

They will be up for pre-order in September when the company’s Kickstarter launches.
