Custom Comic Cover Kicks
Arth Akal Paints Funky Footwear Inspired by Superheroes

By: Jason Soy (Rockstar) May 14, 12

If these custom-painted shoes by Arth Akal went into mass production, no doubt thousands of consumers would try to get their hands on them. The talented Akal has recreated two retro comic book covers on what appears to be Vans sneakers and the resulting shoes look like something straight out of Stussy’s summer catalog. The mismatched look of the kicks adds to its appeal as each one is truly one-of-a-kind. Geeks and fashionable men everywhere are probably glaring at these pictures in jealousy.

Arth Akal has also painted a pair of shoes with contemporary versions of the characters Hulk and Iron Man, though they’re missing the vintage appeal of the old $0.12 comics. When he’s not rendering on sneakers, Akal is a prolific artist who creates images on any surface you can imagine.
