We love video games and we love shoes, so any combination of the two is going to make us extremely happy. And there seems to have been a bit of a trend over the last couple of years for fabulous footwear with designs based on video games and consoles, so we’ve picked out a few of our favourites for you to admire.

And there seems to have been a bit of a trend over the last couple of years for fabulous footwear with designs based on video games and consoles, so we’ve picked out a few of our favourites for you to admire.

PlayStation + Nike PG-2

These PS4 colorways were the result of a collaboration between basketballer Paul George and Nike, and they’re full of surprises. Not only do the logos on the shoe tongues light up just like when you turn on the PS4, the left shoe has a built in barcode which lets the lucky owner download exclusive PS4 store content. Bonus points are awarded for the eyelets, which are in the same colours as the buttons on the controller.

Nintendo + Vans

Inspired by classic 8-bit games, this retro collection was a limited edition series back in 2016, but we wish they’d bring them back so we could get our hands on them now.

Featuring designs based on everything from Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda through to Donkey Kong and Duck Hunt, they even say “GAME OVER” on the soles. Bonus points go to the Zelda ones, because not only are they a joy to look at, they have some very sound life advice printed on them too.

Nike N64 sneakers

The world was introduced to these glorious N64-inspired sneakers very recently, and since then we’ve come to the conclusion that we’d love for Nike to create sneakers based on every console ever made. These ones are full of bodacious 90s charm, with the power and reset buttons on the tongues a particularly nice little touch.

Pokémon + Adidas

This collaboration first came to light a few months back, and while there’s not been much info on a release date more recently, there’s still a good chance you could get your hands on these adorable sneakers in the future. Featuring lineart of Pikachu and Squirtle, plus colourful patches of both Pokémon, these are a more understated look for an avid Pokémon fan.

Pikachu sneakers

We adore all things Pokémon, and these adorable sneakers from GLAMB with their fluffy Pikachu ears and tail might just be the best thing we’ve seen all year. They’d be ideal attire for when we’re out playing Pokémon GO!, although we’re also a little concerned that we might get electrocuted if we get caught out in the rain…
