Microdunk in these Twitter basketball shoes

Shoe designer Brass Monki has gone from custom-designing Super Mario and Bob Marley shoes to something even more embarrassing: Internet-themed sneakers. He's put together some Nike basketball shoes featuring the Firefox and Twitter logos, and Adidas hinted (or threatened, depending on your point of view) last year that they were planning something similar—showing off some Twitter and Facebook concept shoes. These are supposed to be for "geeks," but geeks are too busy biting the heads off chickens in carnival sideshows to tweet regularly, so I'm assuming they mean nerds. They're off base either way, because all the nerds I know display their nerd plumage through anime and webcomic merchandise. These shoes look like what their cat-lady aunt buys them for Christmas after hearing they like the Internet.
