Sneaker heads and gamers rejoice.
FreakerSNEAKS customs came through with the Nintendo themed Jordan IVs. Set atop the iconic Mars Blackmon colorway, FreakerSNEAKS kept the same infamous base, but made some key changes up top. Gone are the iconic Jumpman logos on the tongue with a scripted “Flight” and they replaced with covers of the arguably the best Nintendo game covers.
The left tongue features the Duck Hunt cover, and the right is Super Mario Brothers. The typical white laces are replaced with a gray pair that are eerily similar to the color of the NES controller. Across the bottom eyelets reads “Select” and “Start” for added details.
Perhaps the dopest feature on these customs is the heel tab. The plastic Jumpmans are replaced with a D Pad on one shoe and the A + B buttons on the other.
Lastly, what’s a pair of NES-themed retros without a cartridge shaped hang tag?
These Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) inspired kicks will set you back $1,250, with only 10 pairs being available.
According to its website, FreakerSNEAKS is a sneaker customizing service that has been around since 2005 and was founded by U.K. born artist Jonny Barry.
Oh, and most importantly — and the buttons on the back are pressable.
