To Walk a Mile in These Nintendo-Themed Vans

By Julian Benson on at

Vans has designed a line of beautiful Nintendo-themed shoes, that are wonderfully colourful, come in a range of different styles, and, according to a German shoe shop (via Gizmodo UK), will be on sale this June.

I'm not sure I could bring myself to walk around in any of these shoes, though. They're too darn colourful and easily ruined. Maybe if I was going to a Nintendo event in a hermetically sealed room – I mean, who doesn't spend huge amounts of money on a pair shoes in preparation for an event in a clean room?

Update: I've since had an email from Vans' PR to say that the collection was supposed to be revealed on May 23rd but that a full release of images and lineup is due on June 1st.
