What better backdrop than San Diego Comic Con for Kevin Smith to unveil his very own signature sneaker? Best known for his movies and fanboyish addiction to comic books, the perennial Boy-Man (or was it Man-Boy), was honored last evening at San Diego’s El Dorado Cocktail Lounge with fellow partner-in-crime Scott Mosier with their very own etnies signature sneaker. Inspired by Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier’s podcast program named “SModcast“, designers at etnies converted the label’s Jameson 2.5 into SMEAKER. Despite the Frankenstein’s Monster-esque nomenclature, the SMEAKER is, in actuality, a simple skate shoe with black canvas on vulcanized white sole. Distinguishable accents, like “Forgeticus” and “Have A Week”, all colorful catch phrases invented Smith and Mosier, adorn the exterior in orange or white. Black and white photos of both SModcast’s hosts are strewn across the footbeds on the inside of each pair. Limited in units made, the Kevin Smith x etnies SMEAKER will be available exclusive on etnies.com this coming August for the price of $64.99 US
