I think Japanese people get all the cool stuff first then we get the hand me downs, I hope this is true for the thing I’m about to show you. The Japanese branch of the shoe company Converse, is collaborating with Nintendo to release the “Converse One Star Super Mario Bros OX” low top sneakers. These sneakers will hit Japanese retailers in March and will feature two colors, Black and White. They also will featured both Mario and Luigi on the heel of each shoe in 8-bit versions of themselves along with the Super Star that will replace the iconic Converse star.
Converse also partnered up with Nintendo last year to release Super Mario Bro branded High-top sneakers. Just saying, I would import these shoes to american if they only release in Japan. It would be too good to pass up an opportunity to own a pair of these sneakers.
