This isn’t the first time Nintendo has collided with the fashion world. In December 2015, Nintendo partnered with Italian fashion brand, Moschino to celebrate 30 years of Mario. The Pokemon Company made a unisex fashion line which debuted at Drew Barrymore’s fancy Pokemon Party — and don’t forget about Poke lingerie.

This shoe line will be available in June; cop these for the summer!
