The Converse Super Mario Bros. Shoes Turn All Stars into Invincibility Stars

Inspired by 8-bit Mario characters, Converse is releasing a new line of Super Mario Bros. shoes. The collection features a slight remix to the iconic Converse star, which becomes dotted with two black eyes to form the invincibility star. On the tongues of the shoes you can find pixelated versions of characters like Mario and Bowser under the "All Star" logo. Although the green sneaker seems like a perfect place for Luigi, the guy is nowhere in sight. However, this does give you more of a choice between the heroic Mario or the bad guy.

The Super Mario sneakers are set to go on sale this August, retailing for about $196. With so many stars on them, you'll feel as agile as a video game character too.
