The Japanese branch of the American shoe company Converse is collaborating with Nintendo to release "Converse One Star Super Mario Bros. OX" low-top sneakers in March.
The shoes will be available in either black or white premium leather, and a Super Star (Starman) design will take the place of the usual Converse logo on the side. The characters Mario and Luigi will appear on the heel in 8-bit versions from the 1985 Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) game Super Mario Bros.
Converse began the partnership with Nintendo last year and offered Super Mario Bros. high-top sneakers.
