Iron Man Nike Dunks

Sneaker designer J’field Yeo has took a normal every day Nike Dunk trainer and created these amazing Ironman Nike Dunk sneakers.

The trainer comes with a customised Ironman Suitcase very similar to the one featured in Ironman 2.

This doesn’t look like the kind of trainers you would wear to walk to the shops but I’m sure these will go down a storm come comic-con.

The trainer itself comes in Ironman colours with a gold and red exterior with Ironman’s helmet painted on the rear. It’s customised to have two LED eyes on the rear of the trainer and another Arc Reactor LED on the tongue.

Why not try your hand at customising some Nike Dunk trainers and let us know what you come up with in the comments.




Not-so-custom Nike Trainers

News sites and blogs don’t set the news, they just report what’s happening at the time, and because of this we are writing about another set of custom Nike trainers. This time we feel that Nike and/or the designer has copped out a little. Taken from Destructoid these Street Fight inspired Nike Dunks are only using colours from the characters and won’t have any images on them.

Colours will be:

Chun Li – Blue and white

Ryu – Red, black and white (would that not be Ken?)

We would also like to see:

Blanka – Green and red

Gyle – Light green and dark green

Additional features should include the ability to do a spinning bird kick, flash kick and a tornado whirlwind kick! These would certainly mean the trainers would fly off the shelf and would allow Nike to charge an premium.

Right, back to slightly more serious shoes for a little while…..

More Toy Story Nike Trainers

This was spotted while rummaging around in the blogosphere:

Buzz Lightyear Nike Dunks

How many more pairs have been designed? Surely there must be a Woody pair? We need answers!

Toy Story Shoes

The idea of movie merchandise is one that will put off even the less style conscious amongst us but sometimes there are some pretty amazing bits that pique our interest. Now, it’s worth pointing out that the reason these Toy Story Nike Dunks are as cool as they are is probably because the studio, Nike and nobody like McDonalds was involved in their creation. They are part of a design project by Aritz Bermudez and would sit nicely in the collection of any Nike or Toy Story fans. While the movie is fresh in the cinemas we recon you could also get off with wearing these for a few nights out. You’re sure to get lots of compliments.

Sadly, it’s unlikely that these will ever get made. Companies like Nike are too big and slow to be able to see a design like this at put it into production – they would probably have had to plan this over a year ago. What Aritz has done is quite clever and will hopefully have got the attention of one of the sneaker companies. This way we might see some awesome Batman 3 trainers or something creative for the new X-men movie.
