Mario celebrated its 35th Anniversary this year and to go along with the special event, Nintendo announced a host of Mario-themed swag that included a new clothing collaboration with BlackMilk. We also saw the return of the popular retro handheld device the Nintendo Game and Watch that will feature a full-color version of Super Mario Bros and you’ll be able to get your hands on it when it releases as a limited edition on November 13. To celebrate the recently-released Super Mario 3D All-Stars and more of Mario’s 35th anniversary, Nintendo has teamed up with PUMA for collaborative takes on the Future Rider, Clyde, and RS-Fast sneakers with each shoe in the pack giving a well-deserving nod to one of the three classic games included in Super Mario 3D All-Stars, and all three are rife with Mushroom Kingdom-centric details.

The Future Rider, with details inspired by 1996’s Super Mario 64, comes in a white and tan color and then decorated with the unmistakable blue and red Mario signature hue. 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. Clyde takes inspiration from Super Mario Sunshine, a GameCube title that debuted in 2002. The sneakers shows off 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.

Last on the Mario-themed sneaker list is the 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 on November 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. There’s been no mention at the moment of a release date confirmed for Europe but hopefully in a later announcement.
