Up until about 10 minutes ago I’d never entertained the thought of owning a silver pair of shoes. But that all changed when I discovered that Nike has produced a pair of Dunks that pay tribute to the DeLorean DMC-12. A handful of what look to be cameraphone snapshots of the kicks were posted to the DeLorean Motor Company’s Facebook page, and they show off more than just the shoe’s matte silver finish which is an homage to the car’s stainless steel body. The back of the shoes sport a set of horizontal stripes that are not unlike the DeLorean’s rear window shades, and the colored pattern on the soles do an amazing job at emulating the car’s taillight design.
And if there’s still any doubt in your mind that you want, nee need a pair, just take a look at the gull-wing cardboard flaps on the shoebox which I’ll admit caused me to let out a small shriek. Sadly only about 1,000 of these are being produced, so you’ll need to hunt down a boutique shoe store on November 26 if you hope to have even a tiny chance of scoring a pair.
