When Michael Jordan hit that go-ahead jumper in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals, the Utah Jazz championship hopes went up in smoke. Freehand Profit has made quite a name (and a face) for himself in the sneaker community thanks to his unique sneaker art sculptures – gas masks, to be more specific. Using classic Air Jordans and Nikes to create these visceral masks with unsettling demeanors, Freehand Profit reconstitutes leather and rubber to create these masks, this time using the Air Jordan XIV ‘Last Shot’. He also answers the most common question he likely receives – “What’s the point?” – by stating that his work is a chance for him to reflect the world around him. He also states that he never plans ahead with the sneaker, but that the shoe itself dictates the mask (more cool info from Freehand Profit here). Check out the gallery of images below and if you want to own this piece, check out the auction from freehandprofit57 on eBay.

i feel like this guy spends too much money on shoes just to turn them into a mask... and SOLD FOR 1600 ARE YOU CRAZY???
People can't understand art. If you were not too stupid you'd check the price of that stuff on ebay and understand that he didn't wasted money, he made some with it. Btw many people have these shoes but only one will have this mask.
Guy must live in some toxic air to always be making gas masks or maybe his wife's anal glands work overtime?
Lol that shxt is TOOOOO clean! Kinda crazy to pay that much for some j's to do that to them tho. But still, very nice.
I'm loving the mask plus he got the gas mask tatt on his arm. Very creative. I would love to see a Foamposite mask created.
the only one that actually made sense was the Cheech and Chong one.... its still dope and impressive though
Fucking awesome man. Love the tat too. Keep doing your thing and making the art come alive because at the end of the day, who really wants to be normal? :)
There ain't enough haters in the world to keep me from doing me but the support means the world. Much love and respect.
I know right? Why would you spend 160 on something and then sell it for 1,650.00? i don't understand the point.
u mad coz u aint got da money 2 afford em? or just coz u aint got talent 2 do nothing...? hummm..da boy is a fuckin' artist!! good job Freehandprofit Barcelona luv U..
