Steven Cedre is an entrepreneur and artist creating these fancy one of a kind shoes.

According to his website: “Steven Cedre Jr., was born on August 6th, 1974 in Lynn, Ma. I was the oldest son of Rosa and Steven Cedre’s three boys (Oscar and Shaun) and brother to Desiree. My parents were Puerto Rican and lived in Lynn and the South Bronx. I still claim the Bronx as home.

Now I try to use all my influences to design and paint works of art that can be worn and redefine sneaker culture. I use my Latin heritage, my love for Hip Hop and Music, the use of color, imagery, and imagination to make statements as well as challenge aesthetics.”

The online auction describes the shoes as follows:

“Up for auctions is a custom pair of sneakers by Sole Junkie. These are the 1st Xbox-Alpha-Dunks made and seen for the 1st time 5/1/2009. These are an exclusive pair…only one of its kind. Patent leather back with embedded fiber optic wiring in the shape of the XBOX logo. Battery placement is in the tongue as well as on and off switch that has 2 settings: Strobe or Constant light functions. Gradient lime swoosh faded to black. The toe is painted in a surreal Tiger Camouflage with accents of lime and bright green. These are a men’s size 11. If you have any question let me know.”
