Based in Europe, Freaker Sneaks is a relatively new, yet popular custom shoe-making brand. Launched in 2004, the label has designed a number of popular sneakers in the past, including those themed after Play Station 4, Street Fighter 2, Sonic The Hedgehog as well as the super popular Star Wars themed R2D2 and C3PO sneakers. On similar lines, Nintendo had also partnered with Vans in the past for an 8-bit inspired shoe collection that featured games like Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, and The Legend of Zelda. This custom European sneaker artist has revealed that Freaker Sneaks’ newest creation will be an upcoming series of Super Nintendo inspired Super Nintendo Sneakers that will combine the nostalgic appeal of the video gaming console with Nike’s Air Jordan basketball shoes.
For those of you who have grown up with a major part of your childhood being glued to gaming consoles, the intended design layout of the sneakers will indeed be a stroll down the memory lane for some key and very nostalgic reasons. For one the dominating gray color scheme of the sneakers will be quite similar to that of the actual Nintendo gaming console of your childhood. The stylish sneakers will also include the D-Pad and buttons of the actual Nintendo gaming console emblazoned on the rear. If that wasn’t enough for giving it a realistic feel of your video-game infested childhood, the sneakers will also contain the tech pad and the colorful controls of the actual Nintendo gaming console of quadruplet red, blue, green and yellow to appease your inner child or the adult video gamer in you who refuses to grow up!
With such cool and attention-to-detail design features, it is so easy to get super-excited over these Super Nintendo Sneakers, especially if you have spent countless hours in your childhood on the gaming console itself! While the sneakers’ intended price still remains unknown, these custom shoes will reportedly be manufactured in a limited edition of only ten pairs.
