If you ever dreamed of walking and running down the street while imagining the super mario theme on your head, you better hurry for there will only be 10 pairs available of the Jordan “Nes” IV! And the price for a pair? USD1,250 (about Php63,000).
However, it’s such a pricey tag for a custom item, considering a standard Air Jordan 4 Retro from the Nike store is listed at only USD139.97 (about Php7,000).
On the other hand, resell value for certain color themes of the Air Jordan 4 Retro can go up to around $900 (roughly P45,500). Add that to the limited run of the Jordan “Nes” IV, plus the extensive customization, and the asking price starts to look reasonably fair.
The item is a Nintendo-themed Nike Jordan IVs from a company called Freaker Sneaks, which specializes in creating custom shoes.
It’s inspired by the classic Nintendo Entertainment System game console color scheme—mostly gray, black, white, and red.
And what about this, it also features Nintendo’s controller buttons at the back of the shoes, which the company claims can be pressed. Cool.
This custom Air Jordan 4 is inspired by Duck Hunt and of course, Super Mario Brothers, two of the most popular games not only for the NES, but in the history of video games. The shoes feature the art of both games on the tongues along with the NES controller buttons and D-pad on the heels. Other details include “start select” written on the laces by the toe and a special Nintendo Air Jordan hang tag.
If you’re a big Nintendo fan and you run out of ideas on how to spend your wealth, think again,. It’s limited edition, bro. Maybe it’s about time; if you’re sick and tired of your wife’s 100-thousand-peso bags.
