Vans has teamed up with Nintendo to bring you shoes straight out of your childhood fantasies.
The footwear brand and video game creators unveiled an extensive collection of footwear, apparel and accessories adorned with Nintendo-inspired graphic prints and characters from ‘Super Mario Bros.’, ‘Pokemon’, ‘Donkey Kong’ and ‘Legend of Zelda’.
It’s time to power-up your sneaker game.
The throwback collection will be available from Friday 3 June, in both adult’s and children’s sizing (and no we won’t judge you for buying a pair).
The Vans x Nintendo range includes four variations of the Authentic Vans silhouette, including the ‘Super Mario Bros.’ Tie-Dye – which features an all-over character print of Mario alongside several power-ups and the villainous Goomba over an 8-bit tie-dye pattern.
Princess Peach also stars on a pair, while ‘Duck Hunt’ and ‘Donkey Kong’ are each honoured on their own lace-up styles.
Vans’ Classic Slip-On also appears in the sneaker line-up with graphics and quotes from ‘The Legend of Zelda’.
A sidestriped trio of the Sk8-Hi, Old Skool and Sk8-Hi Slim for women pay homage to the NES with prints and colours inspired by the console.
Lace-up styles are trimmed with special details including Nintendo game logos on the tongue label and NES controller lace caplets – but best of all, are the iconic Vans waffle soles printed with ‘Game Over!’.
