    Claire Wyckoff (pretty please be pronounced wackoff) uses the Nike+ run-tracking app to run in penis shapes, which she then posts to her Tumblr 'Running Drawing'. She doesn't JUST do penises though, just a LOT of penises (she's also done a unicorn, middle finger, Slimer from G... / Continue →

    According to a Nike designer, back to the future style powerlaces are coming out next year, THE SAME YEAR MARTY HAS THEM IN THE MOVIE. Just don't get your hopes up for a hoverboard because that shit ain't happening. ...as Sole Collector tells it, designer Tinker Hatfield show... / Continue →

    Because everybody wishes they were a Transformer so they could transform into a much cooler version of themselves with bazookas for arms, Nike has just announced this 'Megatron Rises' line of sneakers. They come in three varieties (including an actual cleated version for those... / Continue →

    Because what's the purpose of a snowboarding boot if not to draw attention to yourself, Nike has just introduced the LunarENDOR QS, a snowboarding boot with a light-up swoosh powered by 30-LED's. Cool, but I wore Superman shoes that lit up every time I took a step when I was a... / Continue →

    This is a series of superheroes reimagined by graphic designer Roberto Vergati Santos as if they were sponsored by famous brands. The sad thing about this is that it's gonna happen. Not if -- when. It's actually probably already been happening. My babysitter won't take me t... / Continue →

    So Nike released their Back To The Future shoes (The 2011 Nike MAG) last night during a special event here in LA that I was rudely not invited to despite 1. being right up the street and 2. Nike knowing good and well I'm down to one shitty pair of flip-flops. The bad news: the... / Continue →

    See what I did there with the whole 'out of this world' thing? Well it's a lie, the shoes are actually here on earth. I just did that for dramatic effect. Also, that little flourish with my cape. Yes, I wear a cape now. These are custom Starcraft sneakers made by footwear ... / Continue →

    Despite no mention of Back to the Future, Nike is releasing these limited-edition DeLorean Nike Dunks the same year as the movie's 25th anniversary. Coincidence? I don't think so. Made in a sweatshop? Are we NOT gonna need roads where we're going? Influenced by the DMC-12â... / Continue →

    Daniel Reese paints shoes. He might paint other things (i.e. the down red) too, but that's not what I came to talk about today. Today we're only talking about shoes. Specifically, these Batman kicks. Speaking of which -- I bet he does everyday for not banging Cat Woman when... / Continue →

    Hoho, looks like this person already beat you to it, Nike. You're too slow on the draw. Also, the kick. Foot joke! Uh-oh, here comes another: Middle Toe: Where the hell have you been? We've been worried sick! Big Toe: At the market, dummy. Oooooh -- is that roast beef?! ... / Continue →

    To make up for that whole Back to the Future hoax, here's some hope that maybe by 2015 we actually will have all the stuff they did in the movie. Starting with: POWER WHEELS LACES! Plus they only require a giant proton pack strapped to the back to work! Technology! Inspired... / Continue →

    Gabriel Dishaw is an artist who works primarily in the medium of junk. Like rusty metal sprockets and nuts and bolts. And among other sculptures, he creates shoes with these things. This piece was a continuation of my previous piece JUNK DUNK (Right) I wanted to attempt th... / Continue →

    This is a working prototype of the futuristic Nike's Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future II. This is not the shoe worn in the movie, it's the prototype from which the others were made. Oh, and it isn't a pair, it's just a single shoe. They were originally called "Slamba... / Continue →

    In a move that makes Nike infinitely cooler in my eyes, the company had decided to release a model similar to those seen in Back to the Future II. Of course I'll never buy them, but at least they're trying. Unfortunately the Marty McFly Hyperdunks have laces and don't vacuum-... / Continue →

    Well folks, it's been awhile since I've showered or posted any custom shoes, so I guess now is as good a time as any to release the hounds with another set of custom footwear. The Optimus Prime ones there are admittedly awesome as hell and I'd totally give my left nut (well, o... / Continue →

    Remember yesterday's Marvel vs. DC shoes? Ha, how could you forget, you ripped the shit out of them you heartless animals. Anyway, the creator of those has made several other custom pairs, including these with an Iron Man motif. They're size 10 only, so if you're any other ... / Continue →

    Well in the pictures after the jump they look all white. Admittedly, in that picture they look gray on top. But I digress. They have headlights in the toes. Pioneer is a concept shoe that coverts kinetic walking energy into electrical energy. There's a tiny battery that cha... / Continue →

    This is a Nike with a Nintendo Entertainment System built it. Allegedly it works. And allegedly I want it really, really badly. I assume the system's output is on the opposite side, where it hooks up to your other shoe, which has a little LCD built in. Freaking sweet! Just... / Continue →
