It was only a matter of time before this power move was made, as Nintendo and Vans come together in 2016 to release their collaborative footwear collection. Teaming up like the Smash Bros. do, the skatewear brand and iconic gaming giant unveil what they have been working on as a duo. Arriving in unique print, the patterns and colourways mainly feature characters from Donkey Kong, Super Mario, Link and a few others. Detailed on the Sk8-Hi and VansEra silhouettes, the classic games fused with the classic sneaker models result in an legendary and nostalgic release.
Even with the Super Mario brand still stronger than ever, the style and vibe feels super 90’s. So Vans, who also recently collaborated with the Simpsons, decided it was time to pay homage, possibly because of the announcement of the new Nintendo NX console.Which, by the way, is said to rival the processing power of the Sony PS4 and Microsoft Xbox One. Whether you’re a fan of Goombas or Gorillas, there a trainer in this pack for you. Available at Vans on a TBA date, subscribe to their online service so you know exactly when it drops.
