Now available at LimitedSoles.com, an online shop for exclusive limited-edition shoes, are three styles of DC superhero sneakers. There are Superman, Batman, and Joker editions available for $110 a pair.
Whoever selected the numbers of the limited runs knew their history. For Superman, it’s 1938 pairs, individually numbered. The leather shoes are primarily blue with newsprint designs, a small S-shield logo, and the words “Clark Kent” across the heels. They seem more alter-ego-oriented than superhero to me.
The Batman shoe is limited to 1939 pairs made of leather and suede. They’re black and grey with yellow highlights and Bruce Wayne across the heels.
The Joker shoe has 1940 pairs available. It’s a graffiti’ed version of the Batman shoe, with orange “Ha!” scribbles and green laces instead of black. I was hoping for something in green and purple. If you’re going to be the Joker, you ought to be noticed, after all!
