Vans is making Nintendo shoes

Kick these Ninty kickflip kicks to the curb

Shoes are the exact kind of vapid fad that Nintendo tends to avoid with its properties, but given the ancient company’s recent Miitomo app and general effort to get its franchises onto cellphones worldwide, it seems nothing is sacred anymore. Nintendo has truly gone “off the wall” with these dang kicks.

You can sign up here to be notified when the line goes on sale. SoleCollector, which has images of some of the shoes in the line via European sneak shop 43 Einhalb, says that’ll be in June. A $75 price point is floating around, too, so good luck convincing your parents to buy you the freshest Vans of the moment after they just chaperoned your Warped Tour trip to see Good Charlotte.
