Like Raccoon Mario taking to the skies, the Vans x Nintendo collection launches today. The collaboration has yielded tons of Nintendo-branded shirts, accessories, and sneakers, for men, women, and kids. Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Duck Hunt, and Donkey Kong all make appearances, though I'd love to have seen some Kirby and Metroid in the mix. Also, why are the Yoshi sneakers only in kids sizes?! Complaints aside, this collection is awesome and I've already got my credit card out. Check out the full selection here, and then cross your fingers for a SEGA collaboration down the road.
