Guilford woman wins extremely rare 'Wonka' Nike contest

She now owns some of the rarest Nike's ever made

(GUILFORD, Ind.) -- A Guilford woman is one of five people nationwide to win a contest associated with the movie 'Wonka' which debuted this past weekend.


In celebration of the film's release, Warner Bros. created a contest for fans to compete for an ultra-exclusive pair of Nike shoes designed by the actor Timothée Chalamet himself.


The shoes known as "Nike Dunk Lows" are among the rarest in the world as there were only eight pairs made.


Robin Wray, of Guilford, entered the contest but never dreamt she would become a winner.

To become a contestant, she had to submit a video on Instagram that showed her enthuisiam for the movie.


So, Wray submitted a video showing off her Willy Wonka-inspired Christmas tree.

"This year I decided to break tradition and switch up the Christmas tree to something magical, fun, dreamy and a bit insane," Wray said.


She submitted her video and waited to find out if she would be a recipient of the Nike Dunk Low Wonka's.


The shoes were designed using elements from the film to embody the whimsical and colorful essence of the Wonka universe.


Wray found out that she was one of the contest winners on Thursday, just one day before her birthday.


"Those close to me know I’ve been a fan of Willy Wonka my whole life. Literally my earliest memory of anything is watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on a wooden console TV with my parents and brothers," Wray said.


The only other recipients were from California, New Mexico and Pennsylvania.


Wray says she was honored that her Christmas tree was selected from all of the other entries.


"I was already excited to see the movie on my birthday then this happened," she told The 812

Wray says this unique Christmas surprise means even more this year after her mother passed away in June.


"She always taught me to embrace my creativity, and she led by example! During the holidays, my Mother was at her creative peak teaching me how to decorate the most beautiful Christmas trees and wreaths. I thought about her the whole time I decorated my tree this year. I feel like she and I won this contest together," she said.


We also asked Wray if she'll ever wear those shoes out in public.


"I’ve been bombarded by sneaker collectors from around the globe asking me 'How much for the Wonka Dunks?' My answer is, they're not for sale," Wray said.
