Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ exudes the iconic sweat that perhaps influenced an entire generation of music and culture into one direction of pop. Every frame of that 13-minutes-and-change video has produced lasting images of the legend of Michael Jackson – most notably his distinct taste in fashion. Undoubtedly one of the most memorable ‘props’ in music video history is Jackson’s red leather jacket, designed by the video’s director John Landis’ wife Deborah; the daring red, angular lines, and protruding shoulders instantly became the trend in the mid-80′s and continues to be in use by today’s fashion-forward pop-stars like Kanye West and Chris Brown. ‘Thriller’ and the red leather jacket is the focus of this amazing custom sneaker, designed by Dunk-aficionado Diversitile; it celebrates the song’s unparalleled accomplishments on the billboard by rebuilding the shoe in the same manner of the jacket, using a unprecedented triple-strap shroud with snap-button closures. The shoes are available now in conjunction with the King of Pop’s birthday (August 29th), so check out this amazing custom work below and let us know what you think.

Awesome. Would have been easy to make a mess with the concept but he pulled it off clean as a whistle.
