Get ready for the Nintendo Themed Vans! A partnership between the two companies, Nintendo, and Vans will bring us a range of shoes featuring the most beloved characters from The legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong or Duck Hunt.
The new line will be launched in June, but meanwhile, a set of photos was revealed to the delight of fans everywhere. The designs include slip-on shoes, laced, high and low-tops and a variety of familiar characters. The creators wanted to offer a wearable reminder of our favorite childhood Nintendo games.
The line includes sneakers for both men and women catering to everyone’s taste as far as color and design go. From the classical looking high-tops displaying the Japanese company’s brand, all the way to the laced pink shoes dedicated to Princess Peaches, there is a pair for every customer.
It has been 33 years since the release of the Nintendo console and now the brand is coming back in the spotlight with their gamer themed shoes. After producing special designs for Star Wars and Disney fans, Vans chose to revive the classic 8-Bit games.
After launching a mobile version of Animal Crossing recently this month, Nintendo seems to be extremely open to new partnerships. The collaboration with the sneaker company is entitled Vans x Nintendo and by the look of it, these might be one the best gaming-themed shoes ever produced.
If you still have fond memories of playing Duck Hunt, Super Mario Bros. or The legend of Zelda, you will certainly enjoy the new collection of Vans shoes. The two brands produced a fresh-looking line of footwear that promises to offer the comfort, style and a dose of nostalgia from our favorite characters.
Enthusiastic gamers are already excited for the collection to go on sale, but meanwhile, they can enjoy the set of photos released online. The Nintendo console might have been replaced by modern alternatives, but its appeal seems to be still hanging around. Die-hard fans, parents and hopefully a new segment of the public will now discover or re-discover the famous Nintendo characters.
The collection is expected to hit stores in June, and the price of a pair of Nintendo themed Vans will start from 49.95 euros.
