while brand collaborations between automotive and gadgets are a norm these days, fashion and automotive collaborations are rare – save for those F1 or other racing merchandise. this particular item from Nike is just one of those rare fashion-automotive collaboration. well, it’s more like a fashion-automotive-movie collaboration. introducing the Nike 6.0 DeLorean Dunk, an extremely limited edition sneaker to mark the 25th anniversary of Back to the Future (Universal Pictures, 1985).

the design, color and even the shoe box drew its inspiration from the delightful brushed stainless steel DMC DeLorean DMC-12 which was featured in the movie as the time traveling sports car. you can easily spot the association between the shoes and the car. for example, the sole of the sneaker actually resembles the DMC-12 tail light and the shoe box features ‘gull wing’ opening just like the gull wing doors on the DeLorean. pretty impressive.

i know what you are thinking… no, there’s no auto-lacing. though the sneaker purpose is to mark the 25th anniversary of Back to the Future, the shoe is inspired by DMC DeLorean and not the DeLorean time machine. the Nike 6.0 DeLorean is limited to 1000 pieces world wide and will go on sale this Friday via Nike online store and selected retailers.
