40K: Fan Kicks

This week Mayhem is reviewing some Stellar Footwear from Fan Kicks!

High-Tops that are out of this world!

The most interesting parts of being in the Bell of Lost Souls family is seeing how many amazing artists, game makers, and manufacturers there are out there in our field. This week we were approached by Fan Kicks to give our opinion on their new line of shoes, and I am happy to have some great things to say about them!


Product Details

The shoes are made out of durable materials for every day wear, and come in a wide range of styles and fandoms. We chose Warhammer 40k for our, for obvious reasons. Here are some specs:

  • High-quality ink-jet printing on durable canvas
  • Vulcanized rubber soles
  • Leather toe cap
  • YKK zippers
  • Comfy cushioned insoles

Fan Kicks 40k Shoes – $59.95 – $79.95

Men’s Sizes US 4 to US 13 / Women’s Sizes US 6 to US 15

Available in 3 styles:

  • Slip On
  • Low Top
  • High Top


Unique Removable Zipper System

The most intriguing part of these shoes is the removable tops. We ordered a gorgeous set of Adeptus Sororitas high tops, and a set of Aeldari low-tops. There is a zipper seam attaching the covers to the soles, which snaps open and is easily removable:


The snap pops open when you need to change out your tops!

Then you attach the new tops, zip them up, and off you go!

Easily removable tops take you from one style to the next, fast!


The Results

After walking around in these gorgeous shoes for a few days, I can honestly say I’m enamored with them. The soles are a bit thicker than what I’m used to with Chucks, and have plenty of cushioning for walking around. I would definitely wear these on a regular basis, to cons and such. With the tops being interchangeable, that’s a little bit less bulk in my suitcase for traveling. BIG BONUS. I love the color and fabric on the tops, and adore that I can now wear my Warhammer Fandom loud and proud! I highly suggest these shoes. PLUS, they’re doing a giveaway!

    Oh come on… People who buy these should get a voucher for an immediate cat scan, to have your head examined… lol

    So one assumes this company has paid for the licencing off of GW?

    AND more importantly who the hell want shoes where you can unzip the upper away from the sole? What a stupid and pointless design gimmick.

    • Rahl

      Well, they do sell the upper separately. The lower piece in the pictures, seems the same between all 3 upper styles. So I suppose it saves you money if you want multiple designs/styles for the uppers. As to the comfort and durability of having that as a design feature, I have no idea.

    • Marco Marantz

      Yeah cant see them lasting a month. too much stress on the zipper and stitching

  • DoctorBored

    Ok I’d totally get a pair with the Sisters of Battle art.

  • Carey_Mahoney

    Want some.

  • Moonman45

    Can i get some work boots stamped with a adeptus mechanicus skull? very subtle..

    • euansmith

      How about a pair of boots with Ultramarine Icons on the soles. That’d leave a lasting impression.

      • I’m actually really into that. Footprints with your favorite army logo on them. Hmmmmmm.

        • euansmith

          I could see it being a thing at the Imperial Palace, so that the Servo-cleaners can work out which Space Marine Chapters are walking all the mud in; I’m guessing it is the Space Wolves.

          • Drew_Da_Destroya

            It’s always the Space Wolves

          • euansmith

            Unless it is Ferrocrete Dust; looking at you, Imperial Fists!

          • Drew_Da_Destroya

            I mean, it could always be the Alpha Legion planting tracks…

          • euansmith

            Damn! Stupid, sneaky, sexy Alpha Legion!

  • euansmith

    How do the zips hold up to wear and tear? They look like a weak point in the design.

    • They are actually really thick zippers, I’m not noticing any weakness yet! I’ll report back as I wear them more.

      • euansmith

        Cool. A user review.

      • Drew_Da_Destroya

        I’d actually be really interested in a “report-back” in like a month or two, see how they’re holding up.
