DP Customs is at it again, making incredible custom designs for the Nike Dunk Low sneakers. This time, the sneakers are inspired by two of the most legendary characters in the toy world, Buzz Lightyear and Woody from Toy Story. The sneakers speak for themselves, but here are all the details you need to know.
Toy Story-Inspired Nike Dunk Lows
On the 1st of May, DP Customs posted a few pictures on their Instagram account of these adorable Nike Dunk Lows that were inspired by the legendary toys from Toy Story. With one sneaker dedicated to Woody and the other devoted to Buzz Lightyear, this is a two-in-one that is worth it.
In the description of the post, DP Customs shares a sweet message, saying, “Right in childhood 💘 Happy Children’s Day! 🥳” as well as explaining that this isn’t the first time that they have created this design, but this time they decided to add the characters onto each sneaker, perfecting the technique.
Woody’s side has all of his signature elements, as well as some from Andy’s childhood room, like the clouds painted on the walls as the mid-foot panel, the toe tip being inspired by the white and blue carpet that covers the centre of the floor, and Andy’s name written on the side, the way that the child would write his name on the shoe of his toys to mark them as his.
The rest of the sneaker is all Woody, with the back part of the upper closer to the heel being a brown leather that matches Woody’s own boots and the signature Swoosh being the colour and pattern of Woody’s shirt, complete with a couple of his buttons at the front of the Swoosh. The yellow is also repeated on the NIKE branding on the midsole.
Of course, the design is completed with an image of woody painted onto the upper near the heel, which is spectacularly done, and really brings all the sneaker elements together.
Buzz Lightyear’s sneaker is a little more intricate, matching the intricate details of his infamous space suit. This time, the name written on the sneaker is Matias, either inspired by Toy Story 4 or by the customer who commissioned the design.
The sneaker features the signature lime green that makes up some of Buzz’s suit, both on the toe panel and the back panel near the heel. By the toe, you can see some of the stripes and dots that make up the controls on Buzz’s suit, adding to these sneakers‘ impeccable level of detail.
The mid-foot panel of the upper is grey like the rest of Buzz’s suit, while the signature Swoosh is the purple that makes up the inner of Buzz’s suit.
The lace stays, which had been left untouched on the other sneaker, are painted intermittently with a red that matches the buttons of Buzz’s suit and the NIKE branding on the midsole.
Last but certainly not least, we get to see the stunning picture of Buzz on the back of the sneaker in astonishing detail. Again, this is an immaculate pair of sneakers.
