Sneaker Customizer Martin Figueroa-Ramirez, or better known as ROM, has had a number of great projects featured on Sneaker News, namely his Dunk High creations that were featured in our Sneaker News Battle of the Customs vote. ROM has the astute ability to draw inspiration from the most unique and unexpected sources, displayed by his most recent sneaker custom – the Nike Dunk High ‘Louis the 14th’. This shoe not only takes after the Sun King of France, but also during the elegant time period when art was a major form of expression. Some specific notes include the Palace at Versailles, the currency of that time period, and other fine details that allow this sneaker to tell a story rich in history. These are limited to just fourteen pairs at $250 a piece, so hit up ROM on Facebook and Twitter to see how you can get your own pair.
