This Custom Nike Dad Shoe Is Inspired by a Classic Episode of ‘The Simpsons’

For the latest eye-catching creation from Dan “Mache” Gamache, executed on a popular model of today’s dad shoe trend, the sneaker-customizing standout looked to a classic episode of “The Simpsons” for inspiration.

Mache posted on his personal Instagram account yesterday a shot of a Nike Air Monarch he reimagined to look like the Assassins sneakers that were first featured in an episode of “The Simpsons” during Season 2, dubbed “Bart’s Dog Gets an ‘F.'”

“Thought I’d do my own twist on this whole dad shoe, Sharpie-style custom thing that’s been going on by mixing the Asssassins from the Simpsons — one of the most coveted shoes to have never existed with one the greatest dad shoes to ever exist, The Air Monarch. Obviously this is for fun, so don’t take these too seriously, but I hope they give you a good laugh,” the shoe artist wrote on Instagram.

Mache’s work is a spot-on re-creation from the one that aired on TV, executed in the red, yellow, black and white colorway. The Assassins sneakers were worn in the episode by Homer Simpson and his neighbor, Ned Flanders.
