Though the whimsical Vault Boy might be single most recognizeable character from Bethesda’s Fallout video games, fans of the series know its signature aesthetic is post-nuclear-apocalyptic. This look inspired Jacob Patterson’s latest Nike Dunk High custom, a piece he titled ‘Vault Dweller’ and paired with a bomb casing sculpture that doesn’t just serve as a sick sneaker stand. It’s also a speaker for the two jailbroken iPod Touch devices embedded in each shoe’s tongue as a tribute to the PipBoy 2000 Personal Information Processor. The PIP-Boy got upgraded to 3000 in the recent New Vegas release; does this ‘Vault Dweller’ custom represent a similar leap for handcrafted sneaker designs?

Great concept (love me some Fallout!), awkward execution. The airbrush detailing is ok (not gonna hate cause I certainly can't do it), but the ipods just seem clunky and out of place.
extremely creative....very well done, they look dope and the fact that there are 2 ipod touches in them is just ignorantly dope
Great concept and execution, nice to see someone making customs that aren't just transplanting colorways from different shoes.
if you haven't actually played any of the fallout series games then you simply won't get it, these are great.
Absolutely awesome, fuck the haters. This guy is trying something new, and not sticking to the shit that you're all accustomed to.
Must we sit thru another shitty custom? The.details are cool, but it looks like a shit kickers footwear
