Vans and Nintendo team up for epic new line of NES-themed sneakers, apparel and more

Update (6/1 4:05pm): It looks like we are also getting a line of bags, clothes, backpacks, socks and hats, many of which with the same 8-bit style patterns as the previously mentioned shoes. You can get a closer look at some of them in the new gallery below, along with the incredible packaging for the shoes. Even better, the collection will launch in the US on Friday June 3rd. The line will be available via the official Vans website as of tomorrow.

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.

It looks like we will be getting the hi-top skate models along with the traditional lows and the classic Vans slip-ons hitting retail in June on June 3rd. Check out some of the colorways in the gallery below:

And here is a look at some of the apparel, and what might be one of the coolest shoe boxes we have ever seen:

Duck Hunt Stories December 19, 2014

Forget Destiny and Call of Duty. The best game you’ll fire up Christmas morning will be Duck Hunt.

Nintendo’s classic shooter will be available for download through Virtual Console on Wii U for $4.99 starting next Wednesday. Even though it won’t be compatible with the original NES Zapper (you’ll have to use the Wii remote), there’s no doubt it’ll still be crazy fun.duck-hunt-super-smash-bros

The Duck Hunt dog and one of the ducks (shown to the side) recently joined Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U. Just imagine if Nintendo goes all out and gives us a Duck Hunt Duo Amiibo?!

The original hit the shores of the US in October of 1985 before releasing nearly a year earlier in Japan. While receiving mediocre reception upon release, the game has since become a classic among gamers. expand full story
