Homer Simpson is a simple man. Tease him with a sprinkled, pink-frosted donut and he’ll believe anything you say (except for the existence for an alleged magical animal that produces pork, bacon, and ham). Homer is one of iconic television characters of the last two decades, one that taught us that we all have a little Homer Simpson inside of us, and what better way (for a sneakerhead) to express the inner ‘D’oh!’? Nike SB already graced us with an SB Dunk Low inspired by Homer Jay’s classic outfit, but check out this Nike Air Force 1 Mid custom by Pimp My Kicks that draws upon Homer’s cartoonish nature and love of pastries; the colors used represent all-things-Homer, like the grey toe-guard for his shoes, the yellow toe-box for his skintone, the blue heel for his slacks, and the pink lace-placket that features its own sprinkle toppings. On the heel is Homer’s face, stuffed with his favorite dessert, although we’re certain there is no wrong time for Homer to eat a donut. Check out the detailed images below and let us know what you think. via SF.
