Nintendo-themed Vans are coming

Perfect for platforming

Shoe brands collaborating with the world’s biggest pop culture brands isn’t anything new – over the years we’ve seen brands like Converse and Vans bring out lines featuring characters from Marvel, DC, and Star Wars. You name it and there’s a strong possibility it has been or will be featured on a shoe. That said, as common as these collaborations are, we do still get excited for the good ones and an upcoming line from Nintendo and Vans is looking extremely promising.

The Nintendo collection will feature designs inspired by the company’s most famous games with Old Skool and Sk8-Hi styles emblazoned with characters like Princess Peach, Mario, Donkey Kong, and scenes from games like The Legend of Zelda and Duck Hunt. There’s even going to be a pair covered in NES controllers.

According to Sole Collector, European shoe distributor 43einhalb will begin selling the collection in June and prices will vary depending on the style of shoes.

Shoe collaborations can be hit and miss but this collection looks fantastic and we can’t wait to get our feet into them. We imagine these shoes will have sizes for women, unlike Reebok’s Ripley boots.
