Just as DC Entertainment has a deal with Converse to produce snazzy-looking, custom Chuck Taylor All-Stars featuring DC characters, Marvel has now struck a similar deal with Reebok to create running shoes that look like they might be worn by some of your favorite Avengers and X-Men characters.
Well, it's no Batman phone--but it might be a bit more practical. If you remember, Adam West could only ever get Commissioner Gordon on that thing.
Characters who get their own sneakers include:
- The White Queen
- Captain America
- The Red Skull
- Black Widow
Marvel's website says that fans should keep their eyes open, as Spider-Man-themed sneakers will be coming soon to join the crowd--but frankly I got those at Wal-Mart for my kid, and they only cost $7.
Some of the sneakers are pretty standard stuff, although the Wolverine and Chamber ones have way more yellow than I would be comfortable putting on my feet as I approach middle age. Like my comic choices, give me a good ol' Captain America (or, y'know--Deadpool) any day of the week.
