Converse Meets Super Mario

Posted by Michael Waltzer on April 28, 2011 05:00 PM

Look out Mario, it's Bowser! And he’s captured Peach! What special power will you call upon to save her? Converse!?

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Super Mario, Converse Japan and Nintendo have teamed up to produce a Super Mario version of the Chuck Taylor shoe.  

Available in black or white, this limited-edition shoe should be an invincible all-star, as it's replacing Converse's classic star logo with the star featured in the Super Mario game that gives him the power of invincibility.

Also featured on the shoe (slated for July, reports the Shoe Master blog) is the original 8-bit Mario from the first NES version of the game. Until then, check out another interesting collaboration by Converse Japan: a limited-edition shoe with Givenchy.

WANT! I'd love to own a pair of these when they come out this summer...I hope they aren't going to be ridiculously expensive. It's about time that Converse and Mario appeared together! Smile
