Today in "This is uhmazing," Whataburger published a photo of a Whataburger sneaker on its official Twitter account.

It's orange and white and beautiful, and we want a pair right now. The shoe can't be real, right?

Well, the shoe isn't just the product of some hamburger-loving sneaker fetishist's imagination. The Whataburger Nike is an actual creation from a hamburger-loving sneaker fetishist. Behold the special Nike Dunk Low “Whataburger” Custom. You won't be able to get a pair.

According to Sneaker Bar Detroit, the "Just like you like it" athletic footwear is the 2012 creation of Jake Danklefs of San Antonio-based Dank Customs.

Sneaker collectors are likely familiar with Danklefs, who, according to his Instagram, is the creator of one-of-a-kind, never-duplicated kicks, which means you're likely unable to get your hands on this Whataburger amazingness  anytime soon. But who knows, throw a crapload of money at him and perhaps he'll cobble you a pair. 

Here's some Dank Customs merchandise you can buy, and check out this video from Nike Kicks of Danklefs' sneaker-filled home.
