Nike Air Trainer III + Air Jordan VI Batman Boots

The success of Christopher Nolan’s modern trilogy has taken Batman’s popularity to new heights and we’ve seen a variety of Dark Knight-inspired colorways over the past several years, and as the world prepares for the worldwide premiere of The Dark Night Rises at midnight, it’s worth looking back to how the superhero saga and the history of sneakers intertwine. The connections between the Beaverton and the Caped Crusader stretch all the way back to the Tim Burton era of Batman films, when a partnership between Nike and Warner Bros. made it possible to combine Batman with the Jumpman. Costume director Bob Ringwood noted that “’80s sportswear isn’t going to fit in with [Batman's] 1940s look,” so Tinker Hatfield did what he does best and ‘laced’ up the Dark Knight with some of the brand’s most impressive footwear releases to that point.

The original Batman x Nike Air Trainer III was born for Burton’s 1989 film, and with the reception from Michael Keaton and his stuntmen being so overwhelmingly positive, Tinker took the sneaker-boot concept to new heights for ’92′s Batman Returns. For that sequel, Michael Jordan’s first championship-winning silhouette was made into an even more aggressive Batman x Air Jordan VI boot, with a shroud-like addition on the forefoot and an attached boot collar that actually played a role in the entire Batman ensemble. It’s particularly interesting to note Nike/Jordan’s immense influence over pop culture (even the early ’90s Batman figures wore AT3s and AJ6s!), and with last year’s release of the Mag 2011, could Jordan Brand take it a step further and release an Air Jordan VI ‘Dark Knight’?. Click through to see both styles, let us know which you’d pick in a fantasy scenario and stick with Sneaker News for more rare Air Jordans.  Photos: NT/DeFY

The Avengers set new box office records when it debuted this May and the wider exposure granted by a PG-13 rating should keep it ahead of what’d otherwise be the most anticipated film of 2012.  Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy finds its finale when The Dark Knight Rises on Friday, July 20th, and after the thirteen-minute TV featurette that just aired, there’s even that much more excitement surrounding the film.  That’ll take another bump on the Wednesday before the premier as the latest DC Comics Batman x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star collection releases in colorways inspired by Batman and Tom Hardy’s Bane.  Both feature QR codes on their inner labels that you can scan for exclusive access to online comic downloads, so click through to see more angles and let us know if you now plan on lining up twice next week.

Batman x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star – Black – White

July 23rd, 2011 by | 1 comment

batman x converse chuck taylor high black white Batman x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star   Black   White

‘Batman’ is one of those words that if you look at it for long enough, it takes on a totally different meaning.  And not like the words you examine only to find that they’re apparently descended from some alien language, but in the sense that the idea of a bat-man isn’t really something to be thrilled about.  Bats can be awful if you have long hair and if you make a man-sized one, that’d be just more trouble still.  But from the ‘Da-na-na-na-na-na-na-na’ and Caesar Romero to Jack Nicholson and most recently Heath Ledger, the DC Comics series has such a rich legacy that rarely if ever do we think of Bruce Wayne’s alter ego as just some big winged rodent.  He owns the craziest array of implements this side of Inspector Gadget, so this new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star featuring a B&W take on the newest of the three original TV series logoss on the heel offers a bit of perspective on the character through time, thanks to its simplistic design on an even longer tenured silhouette.  Click through to see more angles and pick up a pair today from RMK.

DC Comics superheros have been associated with the sneaker game since the Nike SB Dunk Mid ‘Batman’ dropped back in 2008, but it’s only in the last few months we’ve seen them reach out for official collaborations like the recently unveiled Bounty Hunter x Masterpiece collection.  DC’s been at it for over seventy-five years now so it’s fitting that with their new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star pack, the publishers were able to align their brand with a model that’s been around even longer.  New Chucks featuring Batman himself, his nemesis the Joker, ‘rival’ Superman and their own collaboration as the Justice League are among the designs available now, so click through to see photos of the entire set and cop yours from RMKStore.
