More Super Marios Bros sneakers from Converse and Nintendo are on the way. These new releases mark the 40th anniversary of the Converse One Star, hence the tongue tags pictured above that have the 40x star detailing on them. Mind you these pairs come from Converse Japan, which makes a bit more sense as far as how the collaboration came to be (They’re also Made in Japan). Continue reading for images on the two new pairs and let us know you’re feeling these Super Mario sneakers.

Converse collaborated with Nintendo on a couple of Mario-emblazoned Chucks last summer, but those were targeted more at the people old enough to have remembered the OG 8-bit character covering their uppers than the kids who make up the stereotypical video gaming demographic.  That changes in more ways than one with this new set of Super Mario Bros. x Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars for kids, a shrunk-down set for kids with the same pattern as last August’s drops, but with the addition of a side panel zipper as has appeared on several other special edition All Stars of late.  Check these out after the jump, let us know how they compare to the adult sans-zip version and whether you’ll grab a pair of these for your little sneakerheads.  Photos: mita sneakers

Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A.  No, that’s not some kind of strange marching order, but rather a slice of videogame history.  The ‘Konami Code’ was introduced in 1986 as a way for dedicated gamers to get an edge in legendary titles like the OG Contra, and while it’s not directly tied to the Super Mario series, the recognition of that pattern can fairly accurately determine if someone was around during the rise of Nintendo’s franchise character.  It was all the way back in ’85 that the Big N dropped the Nintendo Entertainment System in the US along with that legendary Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt ‘collabo’, and the graphics on these new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Double Uppers are taken directly from Sigeru Miyamoto’s first undisputed masterpiece.  Click through to see more angles to see how far Mario has come in the last quarter-century and stick with Sneaker News for word on a possible US release (though as of this writing only Japanese retailers like mita are confirmed).
