Nintendo X Vans Collection

Date: June 02 2016

By: Matt Williams


UPDATE: We've got a release date and some new images of the Nintendo x Vans collection. These pics reveal a 'Game Over' message hidden on the original waffle outsole, and contextualise the shoes' graphics with backgrounds from the games they were inspired by.

The Nintendo x Vans Collection will hit select Vans retailers from June 3.

First it was Converse and now fellow vulc-sole icon Vans has been bestowed with Nintendo's Official Seal of Quality. Mario and Co. run rampant on a slew of silhouettes, including the Sk8 Hi, Slip-On and the ever-timeless Authentic. Everyone from Donkey Kong to Zelda to Duck Hunt's titular avian are represented in OG NES form. Even the Old Skool gets in on the 80s nostalgia, with an 8-bit sidestripe.

The Nintendo x Vans capsule collection will be available from sneaker stores, including Germany's 43einhalb, this June.
