    Nike Womens Dunk High - Canvas - Fall 2009

    Nike’s designs storm the sneaker scene each year with the yearly monsoon and the El Nino hurricane that comes with it. This years various colorways for the Nike Womens dunk are expressed in the same spirit, bringing all the aspects of sportsmanship and artistry in a way that emphasizes style and perfectionism at the same time.

    The Women’s brand is just the natural outcome of decades of scientific study and experimentation aimed at creating the best models in the universe. In this sophisticated work, ultra-advanmced cuteness, and maximal sweetness of expression are coming together in a climax of artistic skill. Well done Nike. Catch it at select Nike sportwear stores.

    I profiled an elaborate pair of customs called the Wall of Skulls Nike Dunks from Qustom Queen Sneaker Artwork last weekend. The mixture of elaborate heel design and subtle colors show the designer’s level of sophistication. The Phone Home Converse All Stars found at the Facebook page linked here show Qustom Queen’s whimsical side.

    Qustom Queen depicted the iconic scene in E.T. where Elliott and E.T. are flying on a bicycle on the way to a waiting spaceship. The Phone Home Converse All Stars are detailed down to the pointy limbs of the pine trees silhouetted against the night sky. The scene is replicated perfectly on all four sides of these sneakers without sacrificing the visual quality of the image.

    The Phone Home Converse All Stars capture the sense of imagination and possibility in Spielberg’s 1983 classic. Qustom Queen shows a different type of complexity on these custom Converse All Stars, resurrecting a classic movie without resorting to cliche or caricature. The designer can be reached at qustomqueen@yahoo.co.uk for questions, custom orders and comments about her work.

    Air Jordan XII (12) ‘Nubuck’ - Black - University Blue

    The legendary Air Jordan XII is back with all its power and glory, overtaking sneakerheads with a sudden storm of black lightning and burning ice due due to the unexpected nature of its release. The original was an exceptionally popular design by itself, and now, with the arival of this perfect rebirth, the legend is living again.

    The black suede upper is a redefinition of the term luxury, and we wouldn’t expect it to be fe\tured on a design as powerful as this one consequently. However, the masters of Nike know what they do, and the skill and talent evident in their designs makes even such an unusual combination in instant success.

    They are available on May 30th from Vault.

    Supra TK Society - Red Leather

    And here’s another version of the same colorway that we just reviewed. This time it is red, and the fiery color is just perfect for emphasizing the bruning determination of Supra to achieve success and glory in footwear design.

    Who can really contest the history and track record of Supra in the field of design? While our words are aimed at extolling the virtues of character and humanity, not to mention dignity in shoewear design, the superhuman efforts of this brand sometimes tie our tongue. But we’ll not shrink from screaming our admiration with the full might of our lungs, whatever the attitude of others may be.

    Catch these from Limited Edition, if you can stand the heat.

    This strong new colorway from Supra TK society is quite an attraction these days, with its glossy upper, stylish design, and mighty lines catching the attention immediately. A lot has been said and discussed about the beauty of the Supra, and naturally the skill and power inherent in the execution of this design requires more than a little bit of elaboration.

    Supra’s supreme designs never bring us to supernatural levels of excitement and fanaticism like those of other brands do, but nonetheless there’s a lot to be admired and approved in the lovely conception which lies behind the implementation of such magnificient creations. In this particular sample, we note the extreme power of the designer’s concept realized with skill. But what else do we expect from Supra anyway?

    Seek your supreme sneakers from LimitedEdition. One million guns will roar in celebration of your achievement.

    In my search for custom sneakers this week, I came across a young sneaker artist named Elizabeth Dias who shows some promise. Dias works under the label Custom Shoes by Bonz and is using her artistic skills to turn simple shoes into sneaker art. After looking through the Custom Shoes by Bonz Facebook page linked here, I was impressed most by the Pow Bam Vans Slip-Ons.

    The Pow Bam Vans Slip-Ons focus on the onomatopoetic words associated with explosions. The toe box looks like it was ripped from the classic Batman TV show with a red “Bam” set against an orange cloud and a blue “Pow” emerging from a red cloud. The Pow Bam Vans Slip-Ons also feature a purple stick of dynamite on the right interior and a purple bomb on the left interior side.

    Dias completed these customs with a colorful “Boom” on the heel. The designer has only made a few customs thus far but she shows the talent needed to succeed in the sneaker art world. If you like what you see from the Pow Bam Vans Slip-Ons, contact bonz10520@yahoo.com to get started on your own customs from Custom Shoes by Bonz.
