Mario Sneakers Are Perfect for Jumping Platforms

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Who doesn't want a pair?

If you're the kind of gamer who likes to wear clothes and hats dedicated to your favourite gaming characters, then we may have found the perfect shoes to go with your outfit. It seems that Japanese Mario fans will have the chance to pick up some limited edition Mario Bros. shoes, and they look like some of the trendiest that money can buy.

The Converse One Star Super Mario Bros. OX shoes hit Japan this March, though if you import a pair try not to wear them to any Sony or Microsoft gaming events.

I want the black ones - I wish there were many more nice clothing ideas like this to be released not just in Japan, but in the West too (and available in Mexico xD)

they look nice. i'm a nike fan, so if they had nike super mario or nintendo character sneakers, i'd definitely consider buying a pair.

I'll stick to wearing my LA Gears, mostly because I don't want to spend money on shoes that will break after the first week (trust me, I will break them)

The quality of them looks horrible. They appear to be made out of a thick, tough material the Converse One-Stars usually aren't. The stitching doesn't look too appealing either.

I can't fit most converse (or vans,nike, etc.) so unless Addidas comes out with a pair I'll have to keep dreamin. :(

If only they could make boots that looks like mario's one but with springs or something underneath to make you jump higher...
