Up until the recent features in a slew of Marvel Comics productions, Natasha Romanova (AKA “Black Widow”) was often overshadowed in comparison to the other leading characters, like The Hulk and Thor. Marvel has brought Black Widow to life, with the casting of Scarlett Johansson, and now we’re getting a pair of custom kicks dedicated to the vicious, Russian spy, courtesy of Alberto Lou of the Kicks Flipped squad.
The Nike WMNS Dunk Sky Hi “Black Widow” customs by Alberto Lou are all black, but feature visuals of the lethal assassin, and her associated logos on the heels. While black suede covers the entire front of the shoes, the rear paneling sees a two tone, monochromatic black zig-zag pattern that dresses the ankle collar and lace strap. Things get really interesting with the hand painted artwork of Black Widow present on the Nike Swooshes. The trained gun-slinging seductress can be seen doing what she does best (shooting), on the right side. Captain America, one of Romanova’s rescuers from the brainwashing clutches of The Hand clan, makes a minimal appearance on the left side, next to a fully engaged Black Widow. Insignia of affiliated organizations of Black Widow appear on both heels, towards the rear of the shoes, and have glowing capabilities.
The all black make up of these kicks is quite fitting for a lady like Black Widow, especially since that’s her attire theme of choice. The hand painted artwork featured on the shoes is impressive, and Lou really captures the intensity of Russian spy. The red stitching found along the base of the shoes add nice accents, as well. The Nike WMNS Dunk Sky Hi is also a great choice for a Black Widow theme, not only because it’s a women’s sneaker model, but there’s something kind of sexy about the silhouette of the shoes; perfect for the dope chicks looking for new, summer heat!
