Vans and Nintendo have joined forces for the ultimate adventure, presenting an extensive collection featuring footwear, apparel and accessories. The collaboration is a celebration of the early days of video games, honoring such classics as Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, Donkey Kong and The Legend of Zelda. In turn, a number of 8-bit-inspired artwork and characters, as well as an assortment inspired by Nintendo’s first console, are featured on various styles.
Classic Vans silhouettes such as the Authentic, Slip-On, Sk8-Hi and Old Skool have been chosen to showcase the graphics, which range from tie-dye designs, to all-over prints, to digi drops and beyond.
To complement the footwear, Vans and Nintendo also present an array of co-branded tees, backpacks, bags, socks, and hats for both men and women – and the shoe boxes are awesome too. They are also making available a selection of kicks for children, featuring the Sk8-Hi Zip, Classic Slip-On and Authentic.
The Nintendo x Vans collection is releasing on Friday, June 3 at select shops as well as online.
Vans also just released the summer-appropriate “Digi Hula” Old Skool.
