    Clutchfans, need your help.

    Trying to locate a pair of tennis shoes. They are Nike's, split length-wise in two colors, one side is red and the other is gray. This is for a friend, and these are the only details she remembers. She's gone on the website and couldn't find them. Any help is appreciated.

    Nike has the ability for you to create your own shoes. Perhaps she saw a pair of those.

    when you say split length wise do you mean there is a line in the middle separating the colors?

    Tennis shoes as in sneakers.

    She did try to custom create it but said you can't do it with those two colors. She also called Nike and the person she spoke to couldn't place them.

    She's certain they were Nike's (saw the swoosh), red and gray.

    Split length-wise, meaning one side of each sneaker was one color and the other side the other. If you look at the sneaker from one side, you'd think it was only one color till you looked at the other side (or from above).

    Appreciate all the responses.

    Call up a shoe store and ask them. I swear, the dudes at Luke's Locker could identify a shoe just by smelling it.

    probably custom kicks to be honest. I havent seen anything that looks like that. But I am sure if you were to get a regular pair of white nikes, then take them down to an airbrush place, you could get something like that done.

    "Tennis shoes" is common term used for sneakers in Houston and in the south in general. You guys giving the OP grief must be from the east coast.

    Everyone knows we call them tenny shoes. Now, tenny shoes probably came from tennis shoes, but not once ever have I heard someone call my crosstrainers "tennis" shoes.

    I saw someone wearing a pair of similarly described shoes at the gym and thought they looked good enough that I tried searching for them too. Nothing really complex on the upper just two tone split down the middle. The one I saw was a dark pink and black, reminded me of the Hitman. Tried to search through half of nike's casual line
