Over here at Brandish, we’re going a bit batsh*t crazy waiting for The Dark Knight Rises to come out. Hitting UK cinemas this Friday, it’s set to be the movie of the summer, as director Christopher Nolan draws his epic superhero trilogy to its conclusion.

So we couldn’t have been happier then to see one of our favourite London-based boutiques, Lazy Oaf, getting in on the silver-screen fun with their own caped-crusader Batman-themed collection. Taking its inspiration directly from the pages of the Golden Age-era comic books, the collection uses repeat print patterns across shirts, t-shirts and sweatshirts, with the men’s range starting at £38 and going up to £80. There’s a Bat-logo rucksack available too, for when a utility belt just isn’t enough to carry all your gadgets with.

Also, if you’ve got a lady-friend who’s also partial to a bit comic book fun, jeepers! Lazy Oaf have got a cracking collection of Batman-themed gear for the fairer sex too. It almost makes comic-book geekery look sexy, seriously!

Seriously, what a year to be a comic-book fan. First the Avengers movie kicks up a storm in cinemas all over the world, then that’s soon to be followed by The Amazing Spider-Man and Batman Dark Knight Rises, and soon after that is the Judge Dredd movie and the Watchmen prequel comics.

And now these totally, totally ace superhero sneakers from Reebok. Above is a preview gallery of the new Reebok X Marvel collection, a collaboration between the comic book giants and the footwear veterans.

Put together by designer Anthony Petrie, these limited edition trainers include The Spider-Man Insta Pump, Captain America Ventilator and Wolverine Pump Fury HLS, the Sabretooth Night Sky Mid, Deadpool Pump Omni Lite, Red Skull Pump Omni Lite HLS, Chamber Blast, Venom Night Storm HLS as well as Freestyles for Emma Frost and Black Widow.

It’s a footwear fetish for “true believers”, as Stan Lee used to call his loyal readers!

What’s really great about the collection though is the attention to detail. I love how the Reebok logo is slashed on the Sabretooth pair, while we could totally see Andrew Garfield’s Amazing Spider-Man running around in those webhead-inspired Insta Pumps.

We’re totally loving these. While you’re at it, check out Petrie’s personal site. He’s got mad skillz.
