Sneakers Of The Night’s Watch

You know you’re obsessed with Game of Thrones when a pair of sneakers totally reminds you of Jon Snow.

The kicks are Nike’s new black/dark grey SB Blazer Mid LR’s. Snag a pair from Premiere for $80, but you’d better hurry, winter is coming.

This Exists: Godzilla vs. Charles Barkley comic book

I was doing some browsing on the Internet to research into some good Godzilla comic book starting points (there aren’t many good Godzilla titles, honestly), since I’ve been reading the incredible James Stokoe’s Godzilla: Half-Century War, and I came across one of the most absurd comic books ever published. Godzilla vs. Charles Barkley.

I guess back in the early 90’s, there were Nike television commercials where Charles Barkley really went one on one against the big radiated lizard himself on the streets of Tokyo. So Dark Horse Comics decided to make an adaptation of the commercial.

The comic is about a little kid who gives Barkley a silver coin that makes him grow Godzilla-sized so they can go one and on and Godzilla can go HAM on Charles’ motherfucking assssss. But Barkley wins (I think), and we’re only blessed with Godzilla wearing his own special shoes, Barkley being way taller than he usually is, and a couple of hilarious splash pages. Check some caps above.

I should be ordering my copy of the physical comic book soon to add to my novelty collection. Mint condition runs around a little less than $20, and I can’t NOT have this.

These Light-Up Custom X-Men Nike Zooms Are BEAST!

Sole Swap and Rebel Aire teamed up on this pair of Nike Zoom Rookie “Beast” Custom sneakers and holy freaking crap! They kind of remind us of the limited edition Ghost in the Shell Tachikoma Reebok Pump Furys from a while back, mixed with those sweet light-up suits they wear in those crazy Gantz movies.

Peep it: More custom sneakers

Super Rare Glassjaw Nike Blazers Hit eBay
The holy grail of Glassjaw collectibles - and a pretty rare set of Nikes - has hit eBay. I can’t remember the last time a pair of these was available. Nike created these as promo items to pay tribute to the godfathers of hardcore back in 2003. The helvetica-emblazoned sneakers have been pretty much impossible to find given the 30-unit run. The seller is asking a whopping $1,250 for one pair. Check out the auction here.

New Old Sneakers from Nike

Last time I checked, Nike still have some not-so-cool practices. That said, these Air Vortex Vintage sneakers are very cool. They look like the lovechild of Saucony and Nike - fluffy and stylish. And the best part is that they come in a variety of day-glow color schemes.

A Little Bit On The Custom Sneaker Side: Fallout “Vault Dweller” Dunks by Jacob Patterson in collaboration with Emmanuelabor.

Jacob Patterson just sent us pics of his latest custom kicks which took him over an entire year to complete. Be sure to click each image for the full sexy view.

From the artist:

The tongues feature jailbroken iPod Touches that have been given sounds, themes, apps, music, and related materials to fit the Fallout universe. Originally I had planned to sculpt or paint the tongues out to look like the actual Pip-Boy device, but it was too noisy. Instead, I trusted the Pip-Boy theme to do the job, and it does in a much more subtle way. On the sides are painted a soldier in Power Armor from Fallout 3 and a Ranger from New Vegas. 

My feet are a little sad that they’ll never get to wear these, but on the other hand, if I had a one-of-a-kind pair of shoes this awesome, I really don’t think I’d ever wear them. They’d just sit up on a shelf in my living room to make visitors envious.

Read the full story on how these were made over on the Custom Sneaker Forum.

A Little Bit On The Custom Sneakers Side: Jacob Patterson will be giving away these one-of-a-kind custom Eewok Nikes on May 4th (May the 4th be with you!) over on A Show Called Kicks.

These are the “Light Side” shoes that Patterson did for Brisk’s collab with Star Wars involving Uncap The App and Thoughts from the Dark Side.

Speaking of the Dark Side, we’re hoping Mr. Patterson does a pair of custom Sith kicks. Or maybe a pair devoted to the most heinous evil of all evils in the Star Wars universe: Gungans.
