During a 2011 when the biggest trend in custom sneakers has been stealing colorways and applying them to new models, Diversitile‘s work remains a level above. This latest handcrafted design is the closest he’s come to an outright copy of something Nike had already issued, this new Nike Dunk High ‘Nightmare’ is inspired by the same dream-inhabiting serial killer who inspired the unreleased Dunk Low SB ‘Freddy Krueger’. This hightop is considerably more graphic in its application of Wes Craven’s scissorhanded maniac, key elements including a razor-edged Swoosh that ’cause’ blood all over the side panels plus a toebox matching Freddy’s facial deformities. The level of detail here is on par with Diversitile’s other standouts including the ‘Bumblebee’ and ‘Child’s Play’ Dunk Highs; which is his best film-inspired ‘fan fiction?
