Paranorman Nike Lebron 9 Custom by SmoothTip

Have you been posting funny pictures of yourself as a child this week on Twitter? If not, either you are afraid, don’t like this design, or haven’t heard of the Paranorman contest being held this week by Nike. 800 pairs of a Nike Foamposite inspired by the movie Paranorman are being given away via Twitter to those with the most weird looking kid pictures. The stop motion 3D movie is based on a boy who is considered weird since he can see ghosts and must save his small town from zombies. To fit in the spooky theme of the film Nike designed the Foamposites to be black with neon green glowing sole and covered in an eerie smoke effect across the upper. But with only 800 pairs good luck getting your own or eBay for an excessive cost. But if you love the green smoke look contact a shoe customizer skilled in airbrush effects.

Atlanta, Georgia based sneaker customizer SmoothTip took little time waiting to get a Paranorman inspired design made in these “Paradunkman” Lebron 9. The black/neon green “Dunkman” shoe was used and given an upgrade with the green smoke effect across upper to perfectly match the green soles. Lastly the black Swooshes were painted a matching green along with a glow in the dark. SmoothTip is limiting this “ParaDunkman” Lebron 9 to 12 pairs that can be ordered via the Store at his newly designed website: and follow him on Twitter: @SmoothCustoms82
