Robot Sneaker Sculptures by TransShoe Formers
Nike released packs of Transformers-themed sneakers around the release of Michael Bay’s first two films in 2007 and ’09, and while they were all exceptionally true to their inspirations, we doubt anyone in Beaverton expected things to get so literal in the wake of the third film’s DVD release. These aren’t the exact same models used in the aforementioned TF movie collabos, but that doesn’t mean these chopped up kicks don’t look like they just made that distinctive morphing sound. Models like the Air Jordan III ‘Pure’, Nike Air Stab and several others have been remade in robotic shapes that still preserve the shoes’ key lines so you can easily identify their natural form. Click through to get a look at the whole run created by TransShoe Formers and let us know which ones are the good guys.
This a unique and innovative art form. Loved the tanks. Not so much the guns. I would like to see larger heads, but that could be non-trans. Anyhow, I find them all delightful!! When will we see you in the news?
all im doin is Recycling and Repurposing ---EVERYONE is artist by matchin ur sneakers to ur fitted cap to putin makin make-up on im not special my baby wanted me to trash my "mowin the lawn kicks" i couldnt do it so i cut them up and gave them a reason to stay in my life so call wat u want "haters" i enjoy teachin the kids how to turn ther old sport shoe that they made ther 1st touchdown 1st goal 1st three point shot in or to the women who walk for a charity they strongly support i just create a practical piece of art u can display instead of hidden ina shoe box or by the front door with the rest of the "mowin the lawnshoe" thanks to EVERYONE who can understand and appreciate wat im doin--gudlookinout-bumps
I know this guy he only uses shoes people give him to use or ones that he finds for deals. If you are interested I can put you in touch with him he does charge but it is worth it to do this with whatever shoes you want. Oh and btw he lives in Seattle and the work is dope!
Far from original...google Transformers x Nike Free, way cooler imho cuz they would actually transform back into a shoe...these, all he did was glue some sneaker parts onto a robot exoskeleton...those calling it art, yeah, its art, but FAR from being great art...
Ya he chopped em up, but its better than sitting in a box not being worn. Now they can properly be displayed
Thats pretty cool. u can comment on if there a waste on not, but he did it on his own shoes, so its not a waste to the dude that made em. tbh honest tho, and this might be a little harsh cus im no artist myself, but the pure 3's and the asics look really quality, but the others look a little bit out of an arts/crafts classroom.
Haters gon hate but this is great work. Yeah he chopped up some dope shoes but he took something rare and made it a 1 of 1. That's 100.
