Overwatch Inspired Nike Shoes Showcased At Fan Event
Overwatch is an international phenomenon that started from the hands that created series like World of Warcraft and Diablo III, but their first-person shooter gained headway and taken on the world. Despite the plethora of official merchandise to choose from, there are fans out there willing to put their creative skills to the test and unafraid to show it to the world. One such creative who goes by Upboy brought his original sneaker creations to an Overwatch fan festival in South Korea and they’re gaining popular momentum.
Seen below, Overwatch inspired designs were made for each hero utilizing the Nike Air Force 1’s as a canvas. Seeing as the hero headcount is currently 36, it’s amazing to see all the custom pieces of art Upboy designed thus far. For any sneaker heads out there who happens to play video games as well, these are a must-see. There’s one for Widow Maker, Zenyatta, Zarya, Genji, McCree, D.Va, Ana, Tracer, Soldier 76, and Lucio. Check it out:
It would be interesting to see a shoe for Winston, Doomfist, Hammond, and Orisa one day. Who knows, perhaps Upboy has his sights set on them! He even created custom logos for several shoes with iconic giveaways such as Zenyatta’s orb, Widowmaker’s all-seeing helmet, and Ana catching those Zzz’s. Talk about the fine details!
