Converse Decides It’s Better Late Than Never To Celebrate Super Mario’s 25th Anniversary

Converse Japan has apparently decided to be that one relative who sends you a birthday card months after the date by releasing a set of Chuck Taylor All-Stars celebrating the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. being released on the NES. Which, if you’re keeping score, was on September 13, 1985.

But who am I to turn my nose up at an accessory as awesome as Mario’s Cape Feather even if it’s a little late? The sneaks come in two versions on black or white canvas, and feature an all-over pixelated Super Mario sprite pattern with additional details on the tongue, and the ‘All-Star’ on the side tag turned into an invincibility star. Available starting sometime in July presumably in limited quantities and presumably not cheap.

    Sorry, wouldn’t see me wearing these no matter how many Super Mario’s you put on them!
