Vans x Nintendo 

Hello loves. Earlier this month Vans released their line in collaboration with Nintendo. Being an 80s baby I fell instantly in love with the old school Nintendo themes. My kiddos also picked a pair each. The lovely weather this past weekend was perfect to head outdoors and get some pics. 

3 out of the 4 (1 of my guys is missing here) decided to go with the NES controller style. We picked up the Mario and Luigi pair for Squish.

How cute are the hi tops for toddlers!

I’m really digging the hi tops version. Seeing them on my oldest son’s feet makes me want to go out and get a pair of my own.

I like that “Game Over” was added to the bottoms of the sneakers.

I didn’t get a chance to  take photos of the Zelda slip ons I picked up, but check back later in the week and I’ll have a post about them. I have to admit that these are my favorite collaboration that Vans has done so far. They’re so fun and nostalgic. Check out the rest of the line including Princess Peach and Donkey Kong
Did you pick up anything from the release? Which ones are your favorite?



  • I got the Princess Peach pair but I haven’t had a chance to take photos of them yet! This is definitely my favorite line Vans has done ever! I’m considering ordering the Duck Hunt pair for my husband since he will only wear understated things.

      I kept going between Peach and Zelda. I ended up going with Zelda since it was one of my first video game loves. The Duck Hunt ones are more low key for sure. Subtle but still fun.

    I love Vans! I picked up my first pair for super cheap. I saw these and I wanted to get these, but Nintendo and old school 80’s gaming isn’t one of my huge fandoms so I think I will pass on these.

      They have loads of awesome releases. I liked the Disney ones from last year, & of course picked up the Little Mermaid ones.

    All of them are just too cute. I saw some out at the mall and squealed over them!

    • Desiree

      I think they did a really good job. I like that they included different characters too, not just Mario.

  • Kay

    These are so cute! Toddlers sneakers are just so adorable.And you had me at Zelda slip-ons. Looking forward to that post! I love the Peach ones as well.

    • Desiree

      Yes everything is so much cuter in toddler sizes. I hope to get that up in a few days.

  • Emma

    So cute. I think my favourite pair are the Princess Peach design, but they’re all pretty awesome.

    • Desiree

      Yes the Princess Peach ones are totes adorable. I was torn between those and Zelda

  • I really love the Princess Peach and Villains designs. I’m heart broken that those designs don’t come in slip-ons.

    • Desiree

      I was expecting more slip on options. Slip ins are everything.

  • The Vans X Nintendo shoes are so cute! I ordered the Princess Peach one for my daughter and I, but hers are way cooler because Peach is on a motorcycle. Also super tempted by the Princess Peach backpack even though I have zero use for it. It’s just so cool!

    • Desiree

      Wait wait PP on a motorcycle?! Omg how cute. Yes I thought I was the only one that wanted a backpack from the line even though I don’t need it.

  • OMG!!! This is cool!!!!!! 😀 😀

    • Desiree

      They did a great job.

  • Danielle Knapp

    Ahhh these are awesome! I really want to Princess Peach ones 🙂

    • Desiree

      They’re so adorable. I want them all but my bank account isn’t set up for that lol.

  • I definitely want a pair of Nintendo Vans. Thinking maybe the navy Zelda slipons… but… ugh. budget. 🙁 Maybe if they’re still around in a few months I can swing it. (Right now I’m saving up for some adorable rain boots, because I haven’t had rain boots in 2-3 years.)

    • Desiree

      I went with the Zelda ones. I bought a pair of rain boots last year & was surprised on how expensive they can get.

  • Oh my gosh so cute! I love it!!

    • Desiree

      I want to buy them all 🙂

  • Oh man, the toddler hi-tops are so dang cute! I love the ‘Game Over’ on the bottoms! And the Princess Peach ones are just to die for…time for some new shoes, I think!

    • Desiree

      It seems like everything toddler size is super adorbs.

      • I saw the Princess Peach ones in tiny baby size and I just about died lol.

  • I saw these in store last week, I love them so much! I want the Donkey Kong ones SO BAD. The Game Over on the bottom is a great touch!
