Thanks to some new pics and info from Hypebeast, it’s now clear that these are an amazing piece of sculpture art, crafted so intricately, that from a distance, it looks like a fully wearable shoe. haroshi’s attention to detail is staggering. By stacking and fusing old used skate decks from the Nike SB team, haroshi modeled this masterpiece from a pair of his own worn Dunks, staying true to even the smallest details of the shoe’s form. Keep reading for a better look and understanding of how the piece was created and be sure to check out the way the the stacked skate deck noses perfectly mimic the curve of the Dunk’s toe.
