If you grew up glued to your Nintendo in the '80s, these pair of sneakers will speak to you.

The Jordan "NES" IV are custom-made by Freaker Sneaks, and include ton of delightfully thoughtful details.

For instance, check out the D-pad and actual (pressable!) buttons at the heel of each shoe.

The tongues of the sneakers are also plastered with Super Mario and Duck Hunt labels.

Though this isn't an official collab with Nintendo and Nike, these Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) inspired kicks will run you $1,250, because only 10 pairs are available.

The NES was first released in Japan in 1983 and soon spread to the US by 1985 — and the rest they say, is history. 

And these aren't the first Nintendo-inspired sneakers Freaker Sneaks have mad.

Earlier this year, they launched a Super Nintendo-inspired pair of sneakers, in a throwback to the 90s.
