To coincide with the release of the upcoming 3D stop-motion film The Boxtrolls, Nike will be releasing a limited edition Roshe Run. Designed by Tinker Hatfield the sneakers are called “Trollstrikes” and feature a distressed leather upper, burlap overlays, cobblestone-printed midsole, iridescent sewer-green heel panels, cardboard tongue labels, cheese-print sockliners, dual twine laces, steampunk lace locks, distressed leather Swoosh, twine heel loop, and a waffle-patterned outsole. The “Trollstrikes” also include a custom, laser-cut shoe box featuring gear shapes and the movie tagline “Dare To Be Square.” Decorative tissue paper inside the box unfolds to be the front page of the “Cheesebridge Cheesecloth” newspaper, while Boxtroll Bandages (screen-printed Dri-FIT Elite socks) and a custom, screen-printed burlap shoe bag.
The sneakers will not be available at retail locations, instead an online auction for both adult and youth limited edition pairs of the Nike Roshe Run “Trollstrikes” online, here. The proceeds from the sale will go to Adoption Exchange Association, a nonprofit child welfare organization that connect children in foster care with families looking to adopt. So be a good person and support a good cause while getting a dope pair of sneakers out of it.
