From 8-Bit Peep Toes to Vintage Arcade Brawling Kicks

 - Feb 6, 2012
Gamers looking to update their shoe closet should check out all of these gamer footwear fashions before hitting the store. Gaming has gained social acceptability in recent years, and video game fashion is slowly but surely becoming less geeky and more mainstream.

Gamers are still largely ignored by clothing designers. Shoe companies have started to take notice of gamers however, with more and more shoe companies collaborating with game companies on limited-edition kicks. The gamer footwear fashions found here overwhelmingly skew male, but there is a set of DIY peep toes here that features a famous plumber. The popularity of video gaming is rising with each new big budget blockbuster release. Don't be shocked if the shoe stores of the future have a special section reserved for 'Zelda' and 'John Madden' sneakers.
