Geeky Nintendo, Star Wars & Star Trek Garb For Summer

Geeky Nintendo, Star Wars & Star Trek Garb For Summer

Summer’s here. We’re advancing to another “level” of 2016. Some new, geeky threads could definitely be in order. And gee–look at this. Vans just debuted a new line of Nintendo-themed apparel.

It’s got everything, from canvas shoes and tube socks to baseball caps and backpacks; all styled with art from Super Mario, Donkey Kong, Duck Hunt and even the old school NES. Putting patterns of Princess Peach on a pair of kicks might bring cuteness to a critical mass, but the “stealth geekery” of the Duck Hunt pack seems the more clever find. Unless any knowledgeable retro gamer takes a closer look, it’s proper camo for a rugged outdoor expedition as far as everyone is concerned.

Perhaps your personal style fits the Mushroom Kingdom less than a galaxy far, far away, though? Star Wars apparel might be easy to come by–Kohl’s basically has a whole department for it–but top shelf SW shoes like the ones Irregular Choice is offering are a bit rarer. Embodying the saga’s heroes and villains through abstract choices of fabric, texture, and of course, sparkles is certainly cool; but what’s far more intriguing here is the reinvention of the very concept of a heel. The Jedi shoes might very well be able to slice some arms off. And how much more stalwart will Artoo and Yoda look, carrying the weight of your fun night out upon their shoulders?

If practicality is more your (warp?) speed, you’ll be leaning toward Star Trek, anyway. Think Geek has brought military rank and regiment to casual wear, organizing swimsuits, socks, underwear, et al, with Starfleet’s color-coded science/command/engineering classifications. Granted, blue, red, or gold are limited options for style, but at least your choice out of the three will say much about your personality and skill set?
Are any of these items just screaming to join your wardrobe? What other lines of “geek garb” are worth considering this summer? Kindly drop all suggestions into the talkback.
