With millions of viewers telling ABC to get lost it’s no surprise really that the network has decided to bring their once highly popular TV series “LOST” to and end with the finale season kicking off tonight with a 2 hour premier. Although majority of the viewers lost their interest in LOST it became apparent that the folks at Nike SB must of been holding on as we saw the release of the Nike SB Blazer “Dharma Initiative” and Nike SB Dunk “Oceanic Airlines” to honor the final season of the series.
The crew at Supra must of been fans of the show as well as they have created this limited edition Supra Vaider paying tribute to the series. From what we’re told a total of 50 Vaiders were produced, with 33 of them going to the cast and crew of LOST. The other 17 arrived at Factory413 and went on sale earlier today in-store. Whatever is left, if anything at all, will be available tonight at 9PM PST through the Factory413 webstore.
As for the shoes themselves, Supratells us “the theme around the project was centered on the program “Expose” – a fictional program that appears numerous times throughout the LOST series as a show-within-the-show. In true LOST tradition, the shoes are covered in clues and references taken from the episode in which Expose first appears (the 14th episode of the third season – hence the 17 pairs releasing today). From the “Razzle Dazzle” on the heel to the “paralyzing” insole, fans of the series will be sure to understand the meaning of all the subtle hints included in the shoe’s construction.”
Anybody who manages to get their paws on a pair will not only get these sneakers but they’ll also get a “Expose” crew mug, and a numbered copy of an original LOST script signed by writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. This would defiantly make for the perfect collection for any sneakerhead whos been a long standing fan of LOST.
