To celebrate the movie and the love it is receiving, designer Andrew Chiou designed Super Mario-themed Nike Dunk Low custom sneakers.
Andrew Chiou, a renowned shoe designer, has reimagined the legendary Nike Dunk Lows. The design of these low-top trainers draws inspiration from Mario, Bowser, Yoshi, Luigi, and other characters and items from the game’s memorable levels. It might require some time to understand, but each of the many colors and patterns has a specific significance within the overall framework of the game.
The Mystery Box brand is represented on the top right shoe by a large question mark set against a yellow background, which is part of the brand’s emblem. Similarly, Toad’s red polka dot design on the inner part of the left sneaker is inspired by the mushrooms found throughout the game.
Chiou’s dedication to and enthusiasm for the Super Mario universe shines through in the design’s many subtle Easter eggs. The tongue of the left shoe is made pink to match Princess Peach’s pink dress, while the right shoe is made of suede which seems to represent Donkey Kong’s fur.
Meanwhile, the crimson heel of the left shoe displays the same distinctive M that Mario puts on his helmet, and is an homage to Mario himself.
Creating a pair of Super Mario-themed Nike Dunk Low custom sneakers is a great way to combine the love of video games with the love of sneakers.
