Vans and Nintendo are coming together for a new line of retro NES themed sneakers. After a run of both Disney and Star Wars kicks were released previously, the new line will feature the classic Vans silhouettes adorned by iconic imagery from early Nintendo titles such as Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, Duck Hunt and more.

in June on June 3rd. Check out some of the colorways in the gallery below:
