Videogame creator Nintendo has partnered with footwear manufacturer Vans to deliver a new line of sneakers inspired by retro games and iconic characters.
The collection, which is said to be launching next month, includes low-top and high-top Vans sneakers and slip-ons decorated with classic Nintendo iconography. The footwear line boasts 8-bit sprites from The Legend of Zelda, Mario, and Donkey Kong. The must-have pair has to be that pair of camo Duck Hunt sneakers, though. On top of those, there’s a pair decorated with NES controllers, a slew of characters from Mario games, and a pink shoe dedicated to Princess Peach.
