It shouldn’t be a suprise that since we have an international day of towels, left handed people or even bats, video games have their own day too. And if there’s a whole day dedicated to video games, why shouldn’t there are also be sneakers? It’s the 12th of September and the US is celebrating National Video Games Day, so before you take a seat behind your console and spend the rest of the day gaming, take a look at some of the most interesting sneaker/video game collaborations on the market.
