Senior Designer at The Young Astronauts, Dilan Manahan, aka Dead Dilly, is the brilliant mind behind what is now known as "sneaker melts." While some melts are of people's favorite sneakers combined into one, other designs are simply experiments of his. Nonetheless, the designs are typically on point and very futuristic - i.e. the Prism Blaze Runner and Runner Experiment 001. As mentioned before, several designs are composed of an individual's sneaker rotation (purely coincidence), which is the case with the first melt in the gallery above. The shoe is a combination of a Nike Flyknit Trainer, Odd Future x Vans and COMME des GARÇONSConverse, and Dilly even added a Nike LunarFly 306 strap as a bonus.

For more melts be sure to visit the official Sneaker Melt Instagram, where you can send in your own sneakers for a chance to have them melted. Stay tuned for more.
