Nike’s New Shoe: Louisiana Mudbugs Designed By 19 Year Old Baton Rouge Resident

These are some cool shoes. A Nike shoe designed for skateboarders and inspired by Louisiana mudbugs is gathering some excitement. The “Crawfish Shoe” was designed  by  Hunter Hulin, a a 19 year old employee at Ruckus Board Shop in Baton Rouge.

Hulin says their Nike rep gave them the opportunity to customize a shoe about a year and a half ago. “Nike was really excited about it and made it happen for us.” Hulin says people lined up outside the store a day before the shoe was released last Saturday and shelves were cleared throughout the state that day.

The $105 Crawfish shoe will be available online through the Nike website on Saturday (8-23), the shoes first shipment to Baton Rouge quickly sold out.

Hulin says the shoe is red with maroon speckled suede to represent the crawfish, “and on the back heel is quilted yellow leather which represents the corn,” said Hulin. “There is a newspaper print on the mid-panel and on every shoe that newspaper print is different so no two shoes are the same.”
