When it comes to all things cool, you’d be hard pressed to find anything that surpasses the cool quotient of Transformers. That is, of course, unless you come across some truly dope limited edition sneakers. But what about kicks so rare and so rad, Megatron would trade the Allspark for a pair?
Something’s afoot on Cybertron and our friends at Vinyl Toys seem to know what it is:
You are fan of Toys and Shoes, than you will love the Transformers Toys Shoe which was published in Japan.. Now you get a chance to bring home this limited edition Transformers crossover Nike miniature toy sneaker. Nike Japan and Takara Tomy have teamed up to make this faithful ~1/2 scale replica of the “Nike Free 7.0″ in red and white (around 6″ in length in shoe mode.) What makes this toy shoe so special is that you can turn it from a sneaker into our Transformers hero Optimus Prime. As a finishing touch, after the transformation, you will find that the transformed figure is wearing the same sneaker that it transforms into.

"I’ve been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for almost 20 years and I spent so much of that time creating all this weird, emotional art to help deal with it. I got to a point where that got old and making these silly characters was way more therapeutic than trying to put my feelings into a painting. So now I make my little guys to make myself laugh or smile and hope that it does the same for others." -One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj
