To celebrate the August 17 launch of the Laika-produced film ParaNorman, Nike Sportswear has created a special Foamposite for weird kids and anyone who ever was one. The Foams feature printed smoke graphics on the shell inspired by ParaNorman's zombie grave-escape visual effects. Pull-tabs over jagged-stitched embroidery on the heels read "Weird Wins" and Electric Green glowing outsoles with carbon fiber supports provide high visibility above and below ground.
While the ParaNorman Foamposite will not be released in stores, you still have the opportunity to get your hands on a pair. Limited to a run of 800, ParaNorman is holding a #WEIRDWINS contest. Entry rules are as follows:
1) Follow @ParaNorman on Twitter.
2) Find a weird photo of yourself as a kid.
3) Tweet the photo along with "#WEIRDWINS ParaNorman Foamposites."
