Vans gets colorful, retro Nintendo line

So many choices!

Starting this week, fans of classic skate shoes, high-tops and Nintendo will be able to combine their passions through one gloriously colorful collection of Van shoes.

The Vans x Nintendo Classic footwear line kicks off on June 3 with variations of the Authentic, the Classic Slip-On and the Sk8-Hi, Old Skool and Sk8-Hi Slim.

The prints include a Super Mario Bros. Tie-Dye, a pink Princess Peach, a digi-camo Duck Hunt, a floral arrangement Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, an NES pattern and, my personal favorite, a show with a subtle 8-bit stripe.

The lace-up styles include Nintendo game logos on the tongue, NES controller lace caplets and (so very cool) "Game over" printed on the waffle sole of the shoes.

Some of the shoes will also be available in children sizes and the team-up will also include things like co-branded t-shirts, backpacks, bags, socks and hats.

No word on pricing yet, but we can assume it's somewhere between "take" and "my money."
