Sneakerheads and gamers have a big drop coming from PUMA and Nintendo to get excited about on Black Friday, which takes place today November 27th. Nintendo and PUMA have teamed up to release a shoe collection that celebrates the 35th anniversary of the Super Mario franchise, the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), and the recent release of Super Mario 3D All-Stars. Below you'll find all of the info you need on the designs and when and where you can order them.
PUMA x Nintendo Sneakers: Release Times and Pre-Orders
The first PUMA x Nintendo sneaker drop is happening today, November 27th at 7am PST (10 am EST) right here at PUMA.com. The sneakers that will be up for grabs at that time include the Super Mario 64 Future Rider, Super Mario Galaxy RS-Fast, Super Mario Sunshine Clyde, and Super Mario Sunshine RS-Dreamer with prices that range from $80 to $125. Puma will also release a collection of Super Mario hoodies, t-shirts, and shorts that range from $40 to $80.
In our opinion, the strongest designs in the first shoe drop come from the Future Rider ($90), RS-Fast ($120), and Clyde ($80) in that order. Something to keep in mind since these designs will probably sell out quickly. We love the retro N64 Future Rider with its white, blue, red, and tan color combo. The bricks on the heel and flying Mario tag are fun touches as well.
However, the crown jewel of the PUMA x Nintendo collection is the NES Future Rider sneaker ($90 in adult sizes), which will be available here at PUMA.com starting on December 4th at 10am EST (UPDATE: New details on the NES sneaker launch are available here). The design based on the original Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Mario Bros. game is pretty fantastic, and we expect this one to sell out in the blink of an eye. The NES sneaker will also be available in kids' sizes.
