Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson's One-of-a-Kind Nike Shoes

Posted By on Tue, Jun 24, 2008 at 5:40 AM

Aww. My one-time acquaintance Dan Suh (a.k.a. Fall Out Boy's ex-tour manager and all-around nice guy) posted on his blog about the cool present he bought FOB bassist Pete Wentz and pop artist Ashlee Simpson on the occasion of their May wedding.

As he says in that post linked above:

to commemorate the beautiful wedding of my friends i had some buddies at nike help cook up these dunk hi's limited to 2 in the world (one for him, one for her).

royal purple, black, and white with contrast stitching with gum soles. the shoes alone are fresh but add lasering on the outside heel (pw in infinity on high font, as on ashlee's font, and the date of wedding) and these make for a very sentimental pair of dunks. (big big thanks to ashley "the tom" for doing the font layout for the laser). there's a cool inscription embroidered on the inside of each tongue but we'll keep those private

Maybe someday in the not-so-distant future (I hope? er...) when I get hitched, someone will get me a gift as neat as those kicks.
