Rocking the Chuck Taylor All Star with 8-bit Mario

Although they may be 7 months late to the 25th anniversary party, Converse has teamed up with Nintendo to produce some slick looking Chuck Taylor shoes. Available in July, players, I mean shoppers can buy these sweet looking sneaks which are covered in 8-bit Mario art. The tongue looks to have the original Mario Bros logo on it. I’m looking forward to seeing some more pictures of these babies real soon. As of right now, they will only be available in Japan when they are released. What do you guys think? Is it too much on a pair of shoes or do you really like what they did here? Let us know your thoughts!

About the author:

Jeremy’s love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80’s when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he’ll answer, “the day I beat Zelda 2.” To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers.

Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.
