Custom sneakers continue to tell stories that most brands can’t. The innate nature of unique storytelling with designs and multifaceted inspirations is what sets custom sneakers apart from general releases and oversaturated collaborations.
Mark Wilkins, the mastermind behind VRTIGO, is bringing the nightmares to your kicks with a custom set of VRTIGO SBs. The pairs, inspired by Chucky and Michael Myers, bring story telling to the next level with an unparalleled attention to detail.
The Chucky pairs feature distressed salvaged denim for the overalls leather and tinted suede for skin, staples for all of Chucky’s repairs throughout the years. The shoe’s color block print to represent the long sleeve shirt he wore. The inner foot has the silver kitchen knife which is his preferred weapon.
The Michael Myers pairs feature a midnight navy stained suede for the mechanic suit that he wears, mud aged leather to symbolize the mask, and dark caramel brown accent to represent the hair of the mast. To bring it all together, there’s a silver slasher kitchen knife on the inside side of shoes.
The pairs will be available on VRTIGO’s site on November 18 starting at 9 a.m. PST. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club’s art program as a resource to give more inner-city kids a voice through the arts.
Take a detailed look at both colorways below.
