DunkID

Breaking Bad SB Dunks
Breaking Bad is one of those shows that just keeps getting better and better every year.  I love this season, and I’m amazed by how badass Walter White is getting (seriously, Bryan Cranston is one of the best actors ever).  This SB is inspired by the hazmat suit Walter wears when he is cooking.  The shoe has tumbled leather to represent the crinkles in a hazmat suit, a black sole for the rubber boots, the swoosh is in a glitter patent leather baby blue to represent “Blue Sky”, and the insole has a face sketch of the notorious “Heisenberg”.

The Office, Dwight Schrute SB Dunks
I hated Dwight Schrute when I first started watching the Office, but over the years I have started to like him.  He’s one of those guys that are just annoying because they always want to come in first place.  Of course all that hard work ends up biting him in the butt because of karma.  The colours on this Dunk are inspired by what Dwight always wears: a yellow shirt, brown suit, and brown tie (which is used on the swoosh).  The insole would be a dark red colour that is inspired by beets.  “I don’t care what Jim says, that is not Benjamin Franklin. I am 99% sure.” Dwight Schrute
The Joy of Painting, Bob Ross SB Dunks
These Dunks were inspired by Bob Ross, the host and artist of The Joy of Painting.  I respect Bob, not only because of what he inspired in me, but also what he contributed to the world of art.  In a way Bob made art easy and enjoyable.  He took away the fear and intimidation one would have in wanting to paint.  He made painting fun, and most importantly he made it all about the soul.  The uppers on these Dunks are a mix of jean material (Bob would paint in a jean shirt) and canvas material.  The soles are gummy, and my favourite part of this sneaker are the insoles which feature one of Bob’s paintings.
