What sneaker customizers have in common is that they see a unique potential in an existing shoe that the general public may not see. Not to say that Nike hasn’t done amazing in-house stuff, but over the last couple of years, sneaker customs have risen in popularity and given these customizers a star-status in the sneaker game. But this distinct vision goes beyond colorways and into the realm of design and concepts, so while we haven’t seen too many self-made designs, this prototype, build by Brian “Wolfstein” Villanueva, might be the start of a new genre of ‘custom’ sneakers.
According to Brian, the concept of this prototype was born in 2008 and focuses on technology and the advancements made by Nike footwear; seen in his ‘Wolfstein’ Prototype custom are built-in Apple touch-screen displays, electro-luminescent technology, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, built-in charging system, and the recently released Nike+ Technology sensors – all in a futuristic ‘Nike Mag’ styled colorway. The Lunar outsole (the original base model of the shoe is the Lunar Presto Rejuven8) also acts as the foundation of this next-level design, fitting with the theme of forward-progress tech. A complete look at this custom is right ahead so take a look and let us know if you’d like to see more custom sneaker designs above custom colorways!

These are a really strange concept. They look like those water shoes i see kids wear on the beach except they light up lol. Atleast Nike's thinking out of the box though
Great injenuity and constuction. I'm curiuos about the things on the medial side of the midsole. Is that part of the battery pack? Awesome shoe!
What the article forgot to say, "oh you thought the Lebron's were expensive, wait till you see the price tag on these..."
