Everyone can't get enough of Nintendo — last year we saw Moschino rewind time with a collection featuring all-time favourite Super Mario Bros. This year, the collision of the worlds of gaming and sneakers has produced an extensive collaboration between Nintendo and Vans. That's right, you can now sport exclusive graphic prints of 8-bit inspired artwork and your favourite characters from games such as Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, Donkey Kong and Legend of Zelda on sneaks from Vans.
Zip through Mushroom Kingdom, await rescue alongside Princess Peach, zap down ducks and send Donkey Kong in a tizzy — all in the #44 deck shoe (better known as the Authentic). Vans splashes prints and colours reminiscent of Nintendo's very first console on the Sk8-Hi, Old Skool and Sk8-Hi Slim. Even the Classic Slip-On is seen outfitted with quotes and graphics from The Legend of Zelda.
God is in the details, and hardcore fans will definitely appreciate the Nintendo game labels on the tongue and controller lace caplets on the lace-up styles. A touch of playfulness sees the iconic Vans waffle sole shouting 'Game Over!'. For a top-to-toe look, co-branded apparel and accessory items are available as well. Even tiny tots can join in the fun, with downsized sneaker styles featuring characters from Mario Kart and Super Mario.
Launching on 15th June, shop the Vans x Nintendo collection at all Vans Singapore stores, located at Ion Orchard, Bugis+, Jurong Point and Raffles City (opening 24 June 2016).
