Iron Man Dunk High Sneakers are Hard to Assemble
May 16th, 2012
You may have already seen and drooled at those Iron Man and War Machine sneakers from a couple of years ago, but this pair may just make your heart burst, because it comes with a replica of the arc reactor from the Iron Man movies.
Made by MoreThanArtToWear, these modified Nike Dunk High sneakers are packed with Iron Men. They’ve got the crimson and gold colors locked down, an Iron Man lace accessory on each shoe, Iron Man’s mask painted on the heels and a mini-arc reactor on the tongue. That’s not all: the shoes come in a suitcase similar to the Mark V armor seen in Iron Man 2. Finally, there’s a replica of the arc reactor inside the suitcase that you can detach and place on your chest or wherever you fancy. The shoes have built-in batteries to power the lights. Sadly they don’t have jets. At least not yet.
Now for the bad news: the shoes cost $750 (USD) to make. Now for the badder news: due to high demand, MoreThanArtToWear has temporarily stopped taking orders for them. Now for the baddest news: Guys, once and for all, I do not have the plans for this arc reactor replica. This guy does. Not me.
