Following a pair of custom Apple Reebok ’90s revealed earlier this year, custom sneaker designer Andrew Chiou has now delivered “Quartz Crystal” dunks inspired by one of Daniel Arsham‘s life-sized Mickey Mouse plush figure.

The neo-vintage pairs come in a white leather base with faded hues of purple on the mudguard and eye stays, green on the lateral Swoosh, inner lining, and heel tab, and light grey on the collars and mid-sole. Sketches of where quartz crystals would be fitted are found across the shoe in Arsham’s signature style and typography, while Nike symbols on the tongue and heel tabs continue the theme with hand-drawn stripes. Sand-colored shadow laces courtesy of Foxtrot Uniform complete the unique pairs.

While the sneakers were first shown by Chiou in late November, Arsham recently reposted the pairs with the caption “@andu.c travels in the Ether of my minds eye,” paying respect to the designer’s craftsmanship. Other customs by Chiou include Cactus Flea Market, Squid Game, and IKEA rug-inspired pieces that can be viewed on his Instagram found below.
