Nintendo and PUMA first debuted their partnership earlier this year, celebrating the Super Mario anniversary with a limited-edition RS-Dreamer. Now, the pair are back with a full-fledged collection for our favorite Italian plumber, dropping later this month.
PUMA’s Mario-themed sneakers were first teased back in September, with the release of the Super Mario 64 RS-Dreamer. The shoe celebrated 35 years of the world’s most famous video game, and at the time, PUMA and Nintendo promised to follow up with a wider collection to honor several decades of Mario video games. That collection is finally here, revealed by PUMA in press releases earlier this week, including a total of five different footwear options for five different games. First up is the classic PUMA Clyde, dressed in simple off-white tones with blue and yellow accents, inspired by Super Mario Sunshine’s Isle Delfino. Next up is the Future Rider for Super Mario 64, which once again arrives in off-white tones, decorated by colorful accents in red, green, and blue to mimic elements of the OG SM64 worlds. Then, the RS-Dreamer returns for another Mario Sunshine-inspired shoe, this time drenched in aqua blue to mimic the tropical setting, with extra details pulled directly from the 2002 classic. Next, the PUMA RS-Fast represents Mario’s galactic adventures in Super Mario Galaxy through a white, black, and blue-based color scheme. Finally, the Future Rider makes another appearance in this capsule, with a special-edition Nintendo Entertainment System (or NES) colorway to pay homage to Nintendo’s original home console. The collection also includes a small assortment of apparel, largely in the form of hoodies mimicking the colors of the corresponding shoes.
