I joined this forum just for the sake of finding these shoes. The board I came from was completely stumped. Some people thought that is was semi-mass produced as a promotion for a band, but I couldn't get a name.
I assume that the inclusion of a username on the box means its custom, but out of sheer lust for these shoes I hope that's not the case. If anyone could tell me the origin of the shoe, and (if it was mass produced) keywords or even links to where I could buy them, that'd kick ass.
Also, sorry if this is the wrong board for this type of thread.

Thanks for the reply, and for putting the image up.
I noticed the orange/brown box, but I figured that if it was an official release, just knowing some sort of name would allow me to research the shoe, and hopefully find it.
These were an exclusive for Portland-based boutique Compound back in 2005, if I remember correctly. The uppers were fully lasered, with the Compound logo seen on the lateral sides. They were pretty limited back then. Might be tough to track a pair down nowadays but goodluck!
