Chuck Taylors + Super Mario = Awesome Sneakers

by Hazel Chua

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Super Mario, Nintendo is teaming up with Converse to release some snazzy-looking limited-edition high- top sneakers that look mighty fine and totally drool-worthy. Especially for the ultimate Super Mario Bros. fan.


A total of four designs are being released. The first two are set to launch later on in July, while the second set will be dropping in to store by August of this year. The latter designs are what you see in the photos in this post right now.

The designs being featured on the sneakers are classic scenes that anyone who has played the Super Mario Bros. video games will be able to recognize. The first of the second batch of released designs features Mario hopping over Goombas (those orange mouthless guys with the mean eyes).

The second design has a darker theme and features Mario battling it out with Bowser. Look at the inner part of each sneaker and you’ll see Mario reunited with his Princess.

The bad news is that these sneakers will only be made available in Japan. It might be a good idea to start contacting people you know from there or contact shops that have purchasing services if you want a pair.
