VAULT DWELLER DUNKS - CUSTOM ASCK NIKE DUNK HI
After over a year and a half of determination, I finally figured out how to realize my vision for this pair of custom Fallout-themed Nike Dunks. The shoes feature Pip-Boy-infused iPod Touches installed in the tongues by EmmanueLabor and a custom-sculpted bomb to go alongside the shoes to play music from the games’ soundtracks. The shoes also feature paintings of an NCR Ranger and Power Armor suit, being by far the most detailed painting I have ever done on a pair of sneakers.
My sincere thanks goes out to Dov, who commissioned this piece and was very patient and understanding as I made change after change to my original vision. The process was long and arduous and you can read all about it on my CustomSneakerForum post.
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.
