Sneakers and video games share a common and unique ability to tape into our collective childhoods. It makes sense, then, that Vans would team up with Nintendo on a nostalgia-fueled collection using classic 8-bit characters and equally classic sneaker silhouettes. The latter takes the form of the Sk8-Hi, Authentic, Slip-On and Old Skool, while the digital personalities include Mario, Luigi, the Princess, Donkey Kong, Zelda and more. Expect the collection to hit stores this summer.
