Batman and Robin Custom Nike Hightops and Boots
Posted on August 28, 2010
Brass Monki Customs designed some custom Batman and Robin Nike hightop sneakers. These are some very cool looking designs. The Robin style is particularly impressive. These shoes are based on the costumes from the costumes in the television series. You can view the Brass Monki designs on Flickr.
Nike helped design boots for Batman for the 1992 film, Batman Returns, which was directed by Tim Burton. GQ reports that the boots were made from modified Air Jordan VI sneakers designed to work with the batsuit.
This extra from Fandango discusses the making of the batsuit for the film. It also briefly mentions the boots. The Bat Boots are discussed around the 5:15 minute mark. UK costume designer Graham Churchyard says in the video, "Michael and the stunt guys absolutely loved them. They are a really supportive, comfortable boot."
