We checked out three pairs ahead of their June 3rd release and they look pretty fantastic on feet. More specifically, Vans provided us samples of the Controller Sk8-Hi (pictured in the lede image above), the Tie Dye Authentic and the 8-bit Old Skool. With some models being low-top and others high-top (not to mention colorful or minimalist), the collection offers something for everyone -- especially since most will be available in unisex sizes.
There are also Donkey Kong and Zelda designs, if that's more up your alley. The sneakers even come in stylish boxes to match, including one that mirrors the looks of the NES game console. (I don't know about you, but I want that box as a collector's item.)
A Vans spokesperson told Engadget that the Nintendo line will only be on sale for a short period of time. Prices are expected to range between $37 and $70 for the shoes, depending on whether you get an adult or kids' pair. They'll hit Vans' online store this Friday, along with select retail locations in various countries.
