air jordan 2011 paranorman 3 Air Jordan 2011 ParaNorman Customs By Mache

No surprise here: Mache Customs beats everyone to the punch with a pair of custom sneakers inspired by the Air Foamposite One ‘ParaNorman’. What isn’t surprising is his supreme craft, but what may be a bit of a curve-ball is the choice of model – the Air Jordan 2011. The AJ2011 is a great shoe in its own right, but hardly the go-to choice for custom sneakers, but the smoky green detailing paired with the molded-leather upper is actually a perfect match to exude that ‘weird’ motif captured by the ParaNorman theme. What may not be immediately recognizable is that according to Mache, the outsoles glow in the dark? More of this ParaNorman-inspired custom below, so take a look and let us know what you think!

Nike Air Foamposite One “ParaNorman” – New Images

Movie ticket prices have risen to a point where making a hundred million dollars means you had a good weekend, so while raking in $124MM worldwide on a budget less than half that is a sweeping success in any business, Coraline didn’t break any records with its 2009 release. The Laika-produced film was favorably reviewed by critics and even if a hundred and one minutes of eye candy starring a curious young girl isn’t your cup of tea, the Henry Selick flick will resonate with sneakerheads for some time, as the special edition Dunk High released in limited numbers in conjunction with the box office debut remain a premium item on the resale market and one photo of its buttoned build stands alone at number 1 in Google Images’ results for the word “sneaker”.

Following up on all of that won’t be easy, so luckily, the latest effort from the Phil Knight-founded film house can call upon not only a gifted title character, but also what’s arguably the most coveted silhouette in the sneaker game today. The ‘ParaNorman’ Nike Air Foamposite One is limited to 800 pairs and won’t be sold in stores, but instead, given away to Twitter followers who best personify the hashtag #WeirdWins in their photo submissions. There’s still time to rummage through your old photo albums to find a suitable shot to send in, and in any case, don’t be camera shy because we have some dope new shots of the ‘Paranorman’ Foamposites’ smokey neon soles after the jump below.

weird wins foamposites How To Win The ParaNorman Foamposites

In 2008, Nike Sportswear teamed up with animation studio LAIKA (owned by Phil Knight) for a special promo pair of Nike Dunk Highs inspired by the film Coraline. Just 1,000 pairs were produced and each pair was given away via a promo contest connected with the ending credits of the film. Four years later, LAIKA has whipped up another animated film called ParaNorman – a story about a unique boy with the ability to communicate with the living dead. To commemorate the August 18th opening of the film, Nike Sportswear has created a special treat on shoe known for its own quirky habits and reputation – the Nike Air Foamposite One.

Sneaker News first gave you teaser images of the ParaNorman Foamposites on Monday and full details of the release were given yesterday. If you’re still not yet clear on how to obtain these highly-coveted Foamposites, no dollar amount will guarantee you a pair, because these are strictly a giveaway run by Nike and the folks over at ParaNorman. All you need to do is follow @ParaNorman on Twitter, hit them with a childhood photo of yourself being “weird”, and with it, a Tweet with #Weird Wins ParaNorman Foamposite. Nike and ParaNorman call these Foams “Weird Kicks for Weird Kids“, so you’d better swallow your pride and submit some weird photos of yourself? Another look at the official images as well as a step-by-step list of instructions and details are just ahead.
