One meaning for the word ‘simulacra’ is an image without the substance or qualities of the original, so what happens when you take a non-original Air Jordan IV colorway, apply its key details to the body of an Air Force 1 Low and then chop that up to make something that looks like, but has none of the most practical benefits of a gas mask? The simplest answer is that this is the newest example of the now daily growing body of sneaker art, the latest in a series of similar looks from artist Freehand Profit, who’s looking to convey the need for attention not only to fly kicks, but the state of the world around us. Check out more angles after the jump and let us know how the sneaker gas masks rank against other sculptures and art pieces we’ve spotlighted here on Sneaker News.
at first i was like, "holy crap why would he ruin such a nice pair of jordans," but then i realized they were just fusions so it's ok then
Guess everyone really was hyped about Battlefield n MW3 cuz we all know Jordan wouldn't waste his time with this if those games weren't out.
who in their right mind would ruin such a great shoe for a gasmask you probably won't put much use to
Your still going to smell michael jordan's shitty overrated ass through these! i hope these never release. and by the way if they did release, We all know how rich i am so i could afford thousnads of these----> Keep it 100 <--Always!!!
I was gonna post the same thing lol. Destroying a nice pair seems like a franalations type shit. You know these rich kids don't mind since their mommy paid for it. I wouldn't either if I was a punk too :-/
Um ok Ricky Rosay we all know you're a troll and they'll never realease its just a form of art. Have a nice day=D
its random as fuck. the cheech & chong one made sense because of the smoking connotation of those kicks, but not with these
