I’m walking on (Mario) sunshine

Globe recently revealed some Gears of War branded skate shoes, but they weren’t anything fancy – just a plain black shoe with the iconic red skull logo on the side. These Nike Air Classic NES trainers, on the other hand, are obscenely desirable.

Rather than covered in predicable NES-era pixel art, Nike have been cleverly subtle – the colours match the NES controller while the bottom part of the shoe features the D-pad emblem.

Don’t expect to walk into JD Sports and buy a pair though – they’ll only be available at certain US stores.
