The custom Akedo branded shoes have been given an inspirational makeover, which gives them the colour scheme and aesthetic of everyone’s favourite, irritating and mouthy robot. 

The shoes have been created as part of a challenge presented to Tom Harrison of A.O.V, and are part of a giveaway by 2K Games. The giveaway will give fans the chance to win a pair of the custom Claptrap clogs, as well as a digital copy of Borderlands 3: Ultimate Edition.

There’s also a sweet making-of video on Tom Harrison’s YouTube channel, which shows just how much work has gone into painting these pumps. Tom has created various customer pairs of shoes on his channel, including hydro dipping custom Spongebob and Spider-Man shoes.

The competition, which can be entered via @GetFandom, will give one lucky winner the chance to win a pair of trainers in a size nine only since they are genuinely one of a kind. Regardless, these shoes are unmistakably a piece of art, something of which A.O.V specialises in. 

A.O.V, which stands for Art of Visionary, describes the project as “Hand prepared, painted and finished, one of a kind, wearable art.”

“Founded by UK artist Tom Harrison in 2014, after years of customising, designing and creating I’ve been fortunate enough to work with high profile clients, collaborate with some of the worlds biggest creators and curate projects with big brands.”

Regardless of if these trainers are too big or small for your own feet, they are certainly a must-have for any Borderlands fan.
