Converse rolls out Super Mario-themed shoes

Looking for a new pair of kicks, but none of them are quite fitting for your personality? Converse has introduced a new line of shoes in Japan that are anything but typical, dishing up Super Mario-themed shoes in varying colors.

As first spotted by the folks at Japanese blog Mario Clip, these shoes come in two iterations — both featured above — with one harboring Bowser on the tongue, and the other with classic Mario, pixels and all.

The classic Converse design is present with a healthy dose of shine, and the price is set at ¥21,600, which works out to about $212 USD. The shoes will be available for purchase in Japan in August; it isn’t clear whether they’ll ever make their way to shelves elsewhere.

If you can’t wait to see if they’re launched Stateside, you can import a pair online. Either way, check out other interesting clothing that has surfaced recently by hitting up our Clothing tag portal.
