These Dunk 6.0 DeLorean shoes are the perfect homage to the car, and the epitome of how to do a limited edition set of shoes properly. The design of the shoes is meant to inspired the unfinished metal body of the case, complete with black seams and 80's futuristic look. The soles are clearly the car's rear lights. Beautiful. The shoe tongue says "Belfast" where the cars were originally built in the early 1980s. I wonder who exactly owns the DeLorean name rights these days? The company is still around today (located in Texas), offering parts, service, and restoration for the surviving cars.
I wonder about timing and why now. There isn't likely to be a new Back to the Future movie in the works, so maybe it is DeLorean related? Then again, Nike doesn't really need a reason to sell shoes like this. The DeLorean is a machine that needs no reintroduction in the minds of most of today's generations - and these shoes are just plain cool.
