The magical world of Roald Dahl's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" continues to captivate audiences, this time with a fresh cinematic prequel starring Timothée Chalamet as the enigmatic Willy Wonka. In celebration of the film's December 15th release, Warner Bros. has conjured up the Pure Imagination Contest, offering fans the chance to win an extraordinary prize – a custom pair of Nike Dunk Lows designed by Timothée Chalamet himself. This ultra-exclusive Nike Dunk Low Wonka embodies the whimsical and colorful essence of the Wonka universe, making it a dream come true for collectors and film enthusiasts alike. Alongside this pair, Converse has a whole collection of Wonka sneakers coming out in December.
The Nike Dunk Low Wonka is a visual feast, masterfully blending design elements from the film into its construction. The sneaker features a canvas upper adorned with vibrant red, purple, and blue splashes, reminiscent of Wonka's eclectic style. The burgundy velvet accents on the lace set, tongue, and sockliner are a nod to Wonka's iconic jacket, with the canvas symbolizing the jacket's interior and the velvet it's exterior. A special touch is the brown leather tongue tag, embossed with Wonka's distinctive "W" logo, and the heel adorned with a textile version of the cloud candy from the film.
A multi-layered Nike Swoosh sits on the midfoot, adding depth and texture to the design. Each pair is housed in a custom wooden box, with a velvet dust bag, enhancing the collector's appeal. The sneakers are made even more unique with a quote from the film, "It's not the chocolate that matters, it's the people you share it with," and a hand-embroidered number, indicating its place among the eight pairs in existence. Five of these coveted pairs will be up for grabs in Wonka's Pure Imagination Contest.
The five Nike Dunk Low Wonka winners will be unveiled on December 14, 2023.
