Run Athletics x Nintendo
With the Wii topping sales charts weekly and having just pushed out its 50 millionth DS, the time was ripe for Nintendo to release their collaboration with Run Athletics. The company, whose style has been described as urban sport casual, chose their flagship Legacy shoe to display iconic images of Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and others that will be familiar to anyone growing up in the 80’s. The shoes have a black, white, and red colorway with hints of light blue and gray for the designs. The tongue has a prominent M, giving tribute to Mario’s initial. The kicks are limited to just 400 pairs and each comes paired with a Run Athletics x Nintendo t-shirt. If you think you are willing to sport a well designed, albeit geeky shoe, head on over to Denim & Sole.
