DeLorean Presents Nike Dunk 6.0 Shoes

If there was ever something we like more than cars, bikes and girls, than that's shoes. Those of you used to our website know by now that we like to wander off from time to time and present you more than cars: Mercedes calendars, Porsche watches, Ferrari clothing and so on.

But now it's time for something really, really special and, most of all, less expensive than all of the above: the Nike Dunk 6.0 DeLorean shoes. Yes, as in “Back to the Future” DeLorean and yes, as in... Nike. The shoes have been announced by DeLorean on its Facebook page, accompanied by the following warning: “Coming to selected retail stores on November 26, 2010 - just 1,000 or so pairs available...”

The shoes developed for DeLorean feature a Belfast stamp on the tongue, reminiscent of the original Irish factory from which the first DeLorean model first originated (as it happens, the first DeLorean model was also the last). The
eyestay has been designed to mimic the iconic DeLorean gullwing doors, while the outsole is a replica of the vehicle's tail lights.

To give the shoes an even more DeLorean styling, Nike will produce them in matte silver. The no-sew upper also takes inspiration in the vehicle's gullwings.

Of course, no pricing information released yet (average pricing for the Dunk line is around $75), but we reckon that won't stop some 1,000 dudes from snatching a pair right before you do. Especially because, as rumor goes, the “selected retail stores” are spread throughout the world and not confined to the US.
