World's 10 Geekiest Tennis Shoes

Think you’ve got geek cred? These ten pairs of custom sneakers — celebrating everything from The Dark Knight to Xbox 360 — will prove you wrong.

Boba Fett

Stride Rite makes a whole series of Star Wars-themed tennis shoes for kids, but there can be none cooler than the Boba Fett models. [Source]

The Dark Knight

Diversitile is a company that specializes in hand-customized apparel and shoes. These custom Dark Knight Nikes made somebody one of the coolest geeks of all time. [Source]

Iron Man

Another from Diversitile, these were put into production in support of Iron Man 2, along with a similar-but-grey pair for War Machine. Gotta love the authentic look and feel. [Source]


Not sure how comfy these would be, since those are real keyboard keys affixed to the outsides. But they will certainly grab attention. [Source]

Toy Story

My favorite part is the “Andy” on the sole. That’s some thoughtful detailing. [Source]


You can’t wear these shoes, but who cares! They actually transform from shoe to robot! [Source]


They really light up, using ELastolite — the same material woven into the costumes made for Tron: Legacy.


If you really need to celebrate your favorite microblogging service, there’s an Adidas for that. [Source] They also come in a Facebook flavor.

Xbox 360

Not terribly practical, but come on. Who doesn’t want a pair of shoes that look like game controllers? (The buttons are merely aesthetic.) [Source]
