Vans and Nintendo have come together to collaborate on a Nintendo Collection, which is set to drop on Friday. Both companies have a seriously loyal following, so this pack will likely be in very hot demand.
The collection of shoes, apparel and accessories features characters from “Super Mario Bros.,” “Duck Hunt,” “Donkey Kong” and “The Legend of Zelda,” and also takes inspiration from Nintendo’s first console, the Nintendo Entertainment System.
Vans’ Authentic silhouette comes in several variations including a Mario print on a tie-dye upper, a Princess Peach print, a “Duck-Hunt”-inspired pair with a digitized camo backdrop with the hunting dog and flying duck, and a pair with a “Donkey Kong” floral print.
The Sk8-Hi and Old Skool silhouettes in the collection are a nod to the Nintendo Entertainment System, using prints and logos from the gaming console.
For a final touch, each pair says “Game Over” on Vans’ classic waffle sole.
The collection is available for adults and children, with sizing all the way down to youth and toddler. It will be available at select retailers in the U.S. on Friday and at international retailers throughout June.
