On Thursday Sneaker News showed you the first twenty of seventy-eight outcomes of the Nike78 Artist Project. Some of the notables from the last batch were the Air Max 2003 fish-bowl by the Weiden+Kennedy Tokyo Lab and the Chicago Bulls-inspired mural by Paul Jenkins. This second batch doesn’t disappoint either; again, artists were faced with a challenge to re-define the function of Nike shoes. One artist used a pair of Waffle Racers as paint-brushes while another used his feet to mold a bowl from some clay. There’s plenty more to see so check out this second portion of the Nike78 Artist Project and let us know which piece sparks your interest.
