Nike Coraline Dunks

Finally, a new Nike Dunk drop that we’re drooling over and it’s not available – not for sale really.

Coraline, a horror novella by the British author Neil Gaiman was made into an animated stop-motion fantasy film and releases in theaters on February 6, 2009. A pair of Coraline Dunks were designed by Nike to promote this upcoming movie. This is the first full length animated film from Nike CEO Phil Knight’s studio and is directed by Henry Selick of The Nightmare Before Christmas fame.

1000 limited edition pairs of these sneakers will be distributed as prizes … the only way to win is to watch the film on Feb 6th … a secret code will appear after the credits. I say IMMEDIATELY use the secret code at the website and find the Nike shoe box in the Coraline bedroom here. Ah! The pressure!

This is a crazy publicity stunt.  I can’t wait to see the ridiculous amount of sneakers headsfighting for the front row to see an animated movie. Priceless.

The sneaker is absolutely beautiful though and the movie actually looks pretty promising. I’ll be there too and crossing my fingers the entire time. Sneaker gods bestow your powers on me!

Update: There are already a number of insiders auctioning their prize pairs.

This pair is the most expensive yet, at $6500. No one should even entertain this fool and his greed!

This pair is $4000! They’re a size 13 if you’re crazy enough.

This auction is already going and is at $660 with 5 days to go.

This pair just started. Opening bid is $100.

    I just won some too, but it’s not my style.

    Nike Coraline Dunks Size 8!

    I took lots of nice pictures of the sneakers so I can sell it on Ebay.

    Hey Chubbie! Lucky you! I never made it out to see the movie until the promotion ended. IT was still worth it though.The sneakers are fantastic. I wish I had won; i’d actually wear them! They’re a bit too small for me but thanks for giving us the heads up! You will likely cash in a pretty penny for them. I saw some disappear at outrageous final bids!
