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?  Let us know what you think when you click through for more images and stick with Sneaker News for the latest custom designs.  via PaintOrThread

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.

Classic. The Jordan jock riders just don't get it.

Absolutely awesome, fuck the haters. This guy is trying something new, and not sticking to the shit that you're all accustomed to.
