Stomp a goomba with these rad Mario shoes!

6:00 PM on 06.18.2011 // Chad Concelmo

I wish I could pull off wearing a pair of shoes like this. I can officially say these Chuck Taylors are awesome, sporting a print of one of the most classic levels in the original Super Mario Bros. As a retro guy, I obviously love them.

But I know if I wore these they just wouldn't look right. Same thing happens to me in certain kinds of hats. I tried to buy a hat once -- ya' know, the same kind that Luke wears in the Professor Layton games -- and I looked like a fool. So much so, that my friend told me to take it off and never, ever wear it again. Oof. Harsh.

But, anyway, these Super Mario Bros. shoes are amazing. Someone buy them so I can admire them and wish I was as cool as you.

The only thing that could top these would be Kuribo's Shoe shoes. I would totally wear those. Get to designin', Converse!
