Super Mario Bros. Custom Vans Deck out Your Feet Mario Style
January 22nd, 2012
Kivadeno, an Etsy user, has created some awesome Super Mario Bros. Custom Vans. I know what you’re all thinking… you probably think that your nondescript white van with no windows serves you well enough in driving around for your window cleaning business, and that a Super Mario Bros. van might draw too much unneeded attention.
Well, you are obviously not “hip”, as the kids say these days, since you were unaware that vans are no longer ugly cars – they are things that you put on your feet. The Super Mario Brothers Custom Vans feature both Mario and Luigi – one on each shoe. Despite the fact that Kivadeno may have forgotten to draw Luigi’s chin (maybe he left it at home) the designs are pretty awesome.
On the back of the shoes, you have a couple of options. You can get the red and green mushrooms, or you can get two generic Yoshi eggs. You can go with this, or you can go with that. *Cue shuffling hamsters* Obviously, you want to go with the ‘shrooms on this one. Unfortunately, since these shoes are hand-painted, and Kivadeno put a lot of effort into making them, you’re going to have to fork over $90(USD) for them. Geeks, get your forks ready, because there’s only one pair left, and I’m sure plenty of other people have their silverware primed and ready to fork over cash. *Stabs a $100 bill* I’M GOING ALL IN ON THIS ONE.
If you like these Mario Vans, you probably want to check out the Mario Question Block Lamp and the Ye Olde Mario World Map. If you’re interested in purchasing the Super Mario Bros. Custom Vans, hop on over to Kivadeno’s Etsy page and take a closer look at what he’s offering.
