Damn, Vans. Back at it again with the awesome shoes.
No, not like that. Think of “white” as being more of a blank canvas than a color. The manufacturer of slip-ons and high-tops is teaming up with the video game company for a collection heavy on nostalgia and comfort. Designs include 8-bit gems from The Legend of Zelda to Super Mario and Duck Hunt, along with more modern styles. Princess Peach gets her own lace-up low-top, while Yoshi gets the slip-on treatment.
The massive collection, which includes everything from tennis shoes to flip-flops, wasn’t even supposed to be revealed for another few weeks. A representative for Vans told Kotaku U.K. that companies had intended to unveil it on May 23, with shoes hitting shelves on June 1.
But now fans have a few more weeks than originally planned to dream about the sweet new kicks. Let’s hope Vans does right by Nintendo stalwarts and learns from the disastrous Alien Day debacle.
