Yabba Dabba Doo! Dunk Low is getting a nostalgic cartoon makeover with these Nike Yaba Daba sneakers by designer Judy Wright of @sq_customs.
Inspired by the beloved Hanna Barbera cartoon, Judy Wright creates a custom design that pays homage to the iconic Fred Flinstone, known for his signature catchphrase “Yaba Daba Doo!” and his prehistoric adventures with his best friend, Barney Rubble.
The Flintstones was a popular animated series that aired from 1960 to 1966, and its influence can still be felt today -and no one owned the show quite like Fred Flinstone himself. With his distinct orange tunic, turquoise/blue tie, and stone-age accessories, Fred became an iconic figure in the world of cartoons. Now, thanks to Wright’s creative genius, we can relive those nostalgic moments with the “Yaba Daba” Dunks.
The custom design captures the essence of Fred’s vibrant personality, featuring a classic colour scheme of orange, turquoise and black. The predominantly pale orange base is complemented by turquoise accenting on the tongue, heel, and Nike Swoosh, all reminiscent of Fred’s signature tie. Adding a playful touch, the sneakers also boast a pattern showcasing Fred’s animal print loincloth (think bright orange with black triangles). The laces and inner are also a light shade of orange, maintaining a cohesive look. At the same time, the midsole and outsole are contrasting shades of orange, adding a dynamic element to the overall design.
If shoes were ever worn in Bedrock, Fred would undoubtedly be sporting this stylish tribute to his iconic character. Simple yet impactful, these sneakers customized by Wright embody the spirit of the prehistoric cartoon character in a fashionable and nostalgic way.
