Super Mario (Converse) All-Stars
In honor of the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros, Nintendo released a retread of Super Mario All-Stars. Now, working with Nintendo, Converse is releasing some Mario-themed goods to aid in your treading.
The first of the two Super Mario Bros Chuck Taylor All-Stars series will be released next month. The more scenic designs like the one above will start showing up on gamers’ feet in August. What I really love about these Chucks are all of the hidden bits – the coins on the outside flap, the ‘Thank-you Mario’ screen, the oh-so clever placement of the Invincibility Star on the back. Even the box is awesome.
Part of Converse Japan Summer 2011 Collection, the two Chuck Taylor All Star Hi retail for JP¥ 8,190 (or £63) with a release date around July. The Chuck Taylor All Star Double Upper will retail for JP¥9,240 (or £71) and set for launch in August. No confirmation at this time over the collection’s release elsewhere outside of Japan…Mamma Mia!
