It’s Mario’s world, we just live in it. The world’s most famous plumber is at the heart of a special Nintendo Super Mario Bros.-themed PUMA sneaker, dubbed the “Super Mario 64.” J. Cole‘s signature sneaker, the RS-Dreamer, is almost unrecognizable thanks to the red, white and blue paneling and a variety of thematic accents.
What sets this pair of PUMAs apart from the previous releases is that it is also a collaboration between Nintendo for the celebration of Super Mario Bros.’ 35th anniversary. From the leaked images, we can see that the main color scheme adopts the same colors that we’ve seen on Mario’s uniform throughout the franchise’s years. While the majority of the 5/8 cut uppers are in red, the colors yellow, gradient blue, and white make its way on to the ProFoam midsole and front lace support. Mario branding arrives in the form of a Super Mario Bros label at the tongue, a Mario Super Star graphic at the heel, and insoles depicting scenes from the game.
The PUMA RS-DREAMER “Super Mario 64” launches September 4 at Footlocker for $125 USD.
Meanwhile, the RS-Dreamer recently emerged in “Purple Heart” and “Concrete Jungle” makeups.
