FOOTWEAR

Hav­ing al­ready com­mit­ted to hawk­ing cars for Mercedes via Mario Kart, a leap to haulage ve­hi­cles might be the next log­i­cal step for Nin­tendo. The com­pany elected to fo­cus on a dif­fer­ent va­ri­ety of (wait for it) Vans, how­ever, and is col­lab­o­rat­ing with the Cal­i­for­nian footwear man­u­fac­turer on a col­lec­tion of train­ers. The range, which launches this sum­mer and is avail­able across a num­ber of Vans’ ex­ist­ing styles, sports im­agery from var­i­ous 8bit clas­sics in­clud­ing Duck­Hunt, Su­perMar­i­oBros and Don­keyKong. Some of the de­signs are a lit­tle more, uh, con­fronta­tional than oth­ers, but a rel­a­tively sub­dued Mario block pat­tern and a navy, red and mus­tard The Leg­end Of Zelda com­po­si­tion aren’t en­tirely hor­ri­ble, ac­tu­ally.
