Nintendo and Vans are teaming up to offer some great retro-looking shoes after the internet has exploded over the last few years, with people buying Vans and making their own custom designs. The new partnership is just one of the ways that Nintendo is broadening its reach with it’s character IPs. Now the Vans European site has opened a Nintendo section to showcase some of the upcoming designs. While they aren’t live on the site yet, we do see that there will be designs based on Donkey Kong, Princess Peach, Mario, Duck Hunt, The Legend of Zelda, and something listed as Classic Nintendo, which could be just about anything. Personally, I’m fond of Vans because they’re one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I own, so I’ll be watching this with bated breath to see if these designs are worth picking up.
