Leap back into gaming history with Super Mario Bros. sneakers

Although the official 25th anniversary for the legendary game Super Mario Bros. arrived in the waning months of 2010, Nintendo has just unveiled a fashion pairing to commemorate the video game benchmark.

This July Converse and Nintendo will release a specially designed pair of Chuck Taylors emblazoned with the Super Mario Bros. character to further celebrate the game's longevity. The shoes will be offered in black and white and even the box will serve as a collector's item with a special design that reproduces the 8-bit graphics from the game. Pricing has yet to be announced, but these kicks will go on sale in Japan in about a month.
