Geek fashion has come a long way since taped eyeglasses and pocket protectors were the nerd gear of choice for Hollywood directors. Now you can flaunt your love for online encyclopedias with the Thanks, Wikipedia! shirt, let everyone know what an audio-visual dork you are with the AV T-Shirt, show a passion for vintage Nintendo with Duck Hunt cufflinks, or geek out with these ridiculously expensive custom XBox shoes.

These men's size 11 black patent leather Nike sneakers have been customized with an XBox flair, including a spectacularly awesome fiber-optic-lit "X" logo, powered by batteries in the shoe's tongue. Choose between strobe or constant light functions, depending on how badly you want to give small rodents seizures. .

If you're interested in purchasing this one-of-a-kind pair of geek-tastic shoes, you'll have to head on over to EBay. Oh, and you'll have to put $2,500 in your PayPal account.

No, I didn't miss a decimal point. Yes, I think the person selling them is crazy. Yes, you do get free shipping! So at least there's a small discount for those in the income demographic of too-much-money-for-your-own-damn-good.
