Xbox and shoes they do not fit together do they? But now thanks to Sole Junkie, you can have custom made Xbox sneakers. One might think that this shoe is some kind of a gaming shoe with a screen or a shoe to be worn while playing an Xbox game; however this is not the case. They are a pair of shoes like any other, but only in terms of their use.

This one of a kind Xbox custom sneakers made by Sole Junkie features the logo of Xbox at the sides of the heels and what makes this logo cool is that, it has those optic fibers and lights which can be made to work the “disco” way or just glow. The batteries and the switch for this and the glow mechanism of the logo is hidden away in the tongue of the shoe.

This unique pair of Xbox sneakers has been baptized “Xbox-Alpha-Dunks”. E-bay describes this pair of shoes as, “These are an exclusive pair” only one of its kind. Patent leather back with embedded fiber optic wiring in the shape of the XBOX logo. Battery placement is in the tongue as well as on and off switch that has 2 settings: Strobe or Constant light functions. Gradient lime swoosh faded to black. The toe is painted in a surreal Tiger Camouflage with accents of lime and bright green. These are a men’s size 11.”

The Xbox-Alpha-Dunks adorns the price tag of $2,500, yes six times the price of a Xbox 360 Elite system, but then a shoe is a shoe and the cool and the custom ones certainly do not come cheap.
