In a surprising series of announcements, PUMA is back at it again with more Super Mario-themed footwear. For those who were hoping for an update about the Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy RS-Dreamers (a story that we initially broke), sadly PUMA is keeping mum about the stylish kicks. Instead, they’re releasing three new shoes using three different PUMA silhouettes – Future Rider, Clyde, and RS-Fast.
Initially reported by Hypebeast, each pair of shoes will be themed after a game in the Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection – Super Mario 64 (Future Rider), Super Mario Sunshine (Clyde), and Super Mario Galaxy (RS-Fast).
According to Hypebeast, all three shoes will be available on the same day: “The Nintendo x PUMA Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection will release via the PUMA webstore and retailers like Foot Locker come November 27, with the Future Rider retailing at $90 USD, the RS-Fast at $120 USD and the Clyde (a Foot Locker exclusive) at $80 USD.” Foot Locker (and its other retail chains Foot Action and Champs Sports) have yet to include these shoes on their online release calendar.
Nintendo and PUMA have started to share more product photos of the shoes (paired with toys from Jakks Pacific’s Super Mario line). You’ll notice that patterns, colors, and little touches like the Shine Sprites from the RS-Dreamers reappear here. Given the attention to detail, we only hope that PUMA makes the packaging stand out as they did with the Super Mario 64 RS-Dreamers.

Wasn’t supposed to post this until they drop but took the risk to be a hero. PUMA x Super Mario coming soon.
Judging by the social media posts, we’ll see more of these three new Super Mario shoes in the coming weeks. As for the missing RS-Dreamers, that has yet to be answered.
