Nike Dunk High ‘Mayan Prophecy’ Customs by ROM

nike dunk high mayan prophecy custom by rom 1 570x425 Nike Dunk High Mayan Prophecy Customs by ROM

Sneaker News isn’t in the business of perpetuating myths (you know, like the one that falsely suggests the Mayan calendar ‘ends’ on December 21, 2012), but once an idea has taken root in the public imagination, there’s little you can do to stop a meme from spreading like a virus.  The new Nike Dunk High ’Mayan Prophecy’ customs by ROM capitalize on the fact that so many doomsdayers have equated the transition from the 12th Mayan baktung to the 13th with an apocalyptic end of days.  Perhaps ROM is one of those excited by the potential of a new era of change, because his work here isn’t at all gloomy, but rather draws upon ancient aesthetics to give rise to a theme you just know one of the major brands will have to utilize at some point between now and the end of the year.  RōM made it to the end of history first, and you can grab one of the 12 pairs of proof directly from the artist.

Judging by its nickname, you might expect the latest custom Nike Dunk High by RōM to take its theme from a spilt glass of milk, but a quick glance reveals another inspiration entirely.  RōM’s ‘Don’t Cry’ Dunks emphasize the designer’s urban art roots with a series of graffiti-style design elements along with the artist’s signature binary detailing.  The colorway is a uniquely crisp grey/black/blue combo that’s right in step with the current trends, though the level of detail on these far surpasses your average general release.  Click through to see more angles and hit up RōM to grab one of the 20 pair run of ‘Don’t Cry’ Dunks.
