These Nike Air Jordan IV Sneakers Were Inspired By A Box Of Wheaties

Submitted by on September 4, 2012 – 11:06 amOne Comment

Over the course of the last year or so, we’ve seen our fair share of custom sneakers. From Air Jordans to Nike LeBrons, sneaker enthusiasts have taken classic sneaker silhouettes and turned them into one-of-a-kind custom creations that have left us (for the most part) wowed. The detail that some of these guys (and gals) put into their sneakers is remarkable. But, with that said, we’ve never seen anything like the sneaker that you see above. It is, in a word, insane and something that we’re truly impressed by.

Created by emmanueLabor (and spotted over at Sole Collector), the sneaker that you see here is the Nike Air Jordan IV “Wheaties.” And, as you might guess, it was inspired by a box of Wheaties. Using the recent Air Jordan IV “Military Blue” sneaker for the base, emmanueLabor added large hits of orange to the sneaker’s upper, yellow laces, see-through pouches of Wheaties cereal and milk, and large letters across the heel that spell out “Wheaties.” Who needs to eat the “Breakfast of Champions” when you can wear them right on your feet?

This isn’t the first custom kick that emmanueLabor has created, either. As you can see from his Tumblr page, he’s got a handful of different sneakers that he’s created in the past. However, we have to say that this sneaker is the most unique one in his collection and the one that would definitely turn plenty of heads if he ever wore them out in public. What do you think about them? Do you think they’d get a lot of compliments—or do you think guys like emmanueLabor need to chill when it comes to creating custom kicks? You know which side of the fence we’re on. Now, let us know if you would eat these up if you had the chance.
