It’s always a treat when two titans join forces: Davis and Coltrane, Pacino and De Niro, Maris and Mantle. Mario and CONVERSE? One is arguably the most recognizable character from the video game firmament, the other is a brand that created the original basketball sneaker in the early 1900s. That shoe, the Chuck Taylor All Star, has been released in a special edition that celebrates the stout, mustachioed Nintendo champion. His image, in various states of gameplay pause, are strategically placed throughout the canvase upper, with the valuable Starman making a cameo appearance at the heel and side patch. Available in black or white, both models are available now from mita.
