Michael Lau – toy-maker and artist extraordinaire – opened up his own exhibit on July 16th called the MiXTRA.SHOE SHOP (SAMPLE) in Tsim Sha Tsui of Southern Hong Kong, displaying his “Mr. Shoe” character figuring in a number of different “costumes” and designs. The figurines, which can be best described as miniature Air Force 1s with tiny feet, were displayed all around the space; each figure was inspired by famous sneakers like the Air Jordan 1 and Run DMC x adidas Superstar or other memorable images, like the yellow “happy face”. Other Michael Lau pieces – t-shirts, watches, other figurines – were available for viewing as well. Check out the gallery of images of Lau’s exhibition opening after the jump and let us know which tiny figurine you like best. If you’re in the HK area, be sure to check out the space as well because it will no longer be available come August 1st!. via HB.
