Kicks from the Flicks
This set of postcards, entitled Kicks from the Flicks, features four film-related sneaker artworks by UK-based graphic artist Fantome Studio…
The postcard designs (which come housed in a very apt popcorn-themed paper bag) feature four classic sneakers from four classic films – including the Vans Checkerboard Slip-On, as featured in Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982); a custom modified Converse/PF Flyers, as seen in Alien (1979); the Nike Vandal High, as featured in Terminator (1984); and the adidas Tourney, as featured in Teen Wolf (1985).
Interestingly, the original shoe from Alien was apparently put together by the films prop department and features a workwear boot sole tacked onto a canvas baseball shoe (either Converse or PF Flyers - the exact shoe is unknown), which was then painted with white emulsion. Also, it seems that Nike have just released a new version of the original Terminator Vandal, just in time for the release of the new Terminator Genisys film.
