EXCLUSIVE: Nintendo and PUMA Reveal 'Super Mario 3D All-Stars' Footwear Collection

In celebration of the recently-released Super Mario 3D All-Stars and the Super Mario franchise’s 35th anniversary, Nintendo has teamed with PUMA for collaborative takes on the Future Rider, Clyde and RS-Fast. Each shoe in the pack nods to one of the three classic games included in Super Mario 3D All-Stars, and all three are rife with Mushroom Kingdom-centric details.

First up is the Future Rider, with details inspired by 1996’s Super Mario 64, a seminal Nintendo 64 title. Seemingly representing Bob-omb Battlefield, the game’s first level, the uppers are dressed in white and tan — then embellished with Mario‘s signature blue and red details. The midsole bricks feature a fitting brick print, while a winged embellishment on the heel and a special hangtag nod to Mario’s Wing Cap.

Next is a smooth-colored Clyde that salutes Super Mario Sunshine, a GameCube title that debuted in 2002. Taking wearers back to Sunshine‘s Isle Delfino, it features a tan and red upper with a water-printed Formstripe that acknowledges the game’s tropical nature and heavy use of water mechanics. These water mechanics come into play further on the hangtag, which sees Mario sporting his F.L.U.D.D. water cannon.

Finally, a RS-Fast looks to 2007’s Super Mario Galaxy for the Nintendo Wii. A running-style sneaker that mixes black, white, purple and metallic silver with an astral star print, the RS-Fast also boasts a silver iteration of the game’s signature star on the quarter panel.

The Nintendo x PUMA Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection will release via the PUMA webstore and retailers like Foot Locker come October 27, with the Future Rider retailing at $90 USD, the RS-Fast at $120 USD and the Clyde (a Foot Locker exclusive) at $80 USD.
