The shoes are a sweet twist on the classic Nike Air Force 1s

At the Overwatch fan-event in Seoul, some pretty sweet special Nikes made an appearance. Custom shoe maker Upboy made these sweet Air Force 1s based off of Overwatch heroes and villains.

D.Va, McCree and Soldier: 76 all were shown as special mid-tops and Mercy, Ana, Tracer, Zarya, Zenyatta, Widowmaker, Genji and Lucio were low-tops.

Beyond just being the same colors as the heroes, each shoe also sports special logos and graphics along the iconic Nike swish to show off which hero is represented.

Some of the designs are a bit louder than others, which are more discreetly gaming-related. While the D.Va mid-tops might get you eyed by every gamer you walk past, the Mercy low-tops will probably get few to even bat an eye.

Unfortunately it seems that these dope kicks aren’t available to purchase, but it does have us dreaming about a Nike collaboration in the future. In the meantime, you can check out more of Upboy’s work on his Instagram, including in-progress and detail shots of these shoes.
