When I was in my 20s I used to wear a fair amount of video game t-shirts. Now I'm 30, I've decided to replace them with lumberjack shirts... for the rest of time. But if anything could tempt me back to my 'look at me I like video games' clothing habits, it would most likely be these new Converse sneakers.
I don't know -- they just seem... subtle. But also quite smart. I find that most video game related clothing can be a little bit garish, but this takes the whole Converse style and integrates the video game theme quite nicely.
The star fits in with the whole Converse One Star thing, and Mario is just sort of hanging in the back, minding his own business.
These sneakers are being released in Japan in select Converse store this March. Here's hoping they decide to bring them to overseas markets.
