30% of all adult/kids Nintendo shoes & clothing @ Vans
I like the selection of shoes from Donkey Kong, to Peach and Mario to the classic NES style stuff. Hi-tops, flats, trainers available. Bags and clothing too.

Also sign up for the newsletter for an additional 10% off and 7.7% cash back available with Quidco.

EDIT: Having a little bother getting the referral ink to properly list the Nintendo stuff. See the comments for a link or just type "Nintendo" into the search box on the VANS website to see everything.

Dead link. http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mcdjon8f8g1r2kjkoo1_400.jpg

No shoes for men at all. I was told at a Schuh store last September that they were going to restock all the Nintendo shoes, but that never materialised.

Nice image. Is a good link, just not referring over properly, can't get any link to work. Maybe a mod can fix? Am sure people can work out how to put "nintendo" into the search box on website meantime

Isn't Schuh a completely different company? Or are they the same? I had understood that Schuh lost the Nintendo shoe/bag licensing, and it was given to VANS instead.

Schuh sell vans and other brands, they had the Nintendo Vans in stock at one point.

Ah right, now I think about it Converse had the license before didn't they, and they made some great stuff, Schuh sold the Converse Nintendo shoes in the past. I managed to get hold of the classic 8-bit NES Mario 1 blue hi-tops they did in my kids size in about another 2 years time when his feet have grown into them. They are pretty neat, I wouldn't have been embarrassed in the slightest to have worn them myself if my size had been available when I discovered them.

There were various other styles available and they were all pretty good. Have one or two Vans Nintendo shoes and prefer the Converse to be honest.

This seems to be the same deal that was posted around Christmas except, as to be expected, stock levels are much lower.

It may be the design philosophy of Vans but I don't understand why they made all the Nintendo designs so obnoxious and garish. There are way too many colours and shapes going on in most of them and it makes them really ugly. There are plenty of adult Nintendo nerds with money, which I presume these were aimed at because of the retro designs, who would buy official footwear and accessories if they were half decent and I think Vans really missed with these ranges. The two Converse designs pictured above are so much better.

Agree with you entirely. I also dislike some of the large "VANS" branding you get on the clothing. Is supposed to be about Nintendo, or Mario or whatever character. I have bought one or two of the better VANS shoes, wife has nice enough Peach ones and kid the Mario Hi-Tops. The official Nintendo bags via Nintendo UK store or Rewards Club have been higher quality and classier also (i.e. Mario NES 8bit backpack, NES console backpack, Yoshi Egg shape backpack).

The Zelda ones are £30 for amazon rather than 36.40 on their official site.

thanks op. ordered
