“One man’s junk is another man’s…”
Gabriel Dishaw, the self-proclaimed ‘junk artist’, is known in Sneaker News circles for his sick Nike sculptures made of old computer and machine parts. If you were impressed by his Nike Blazer Pentium 1.0, his Air Max 2011, or his entire ‘No So New Shoes’ exhibit, check out the Nike Free Run 2, which he calls the Nike Free Time Y2K; focusing on the theme of ‘time’, Dishaw used old watch bands for structure while adding machine keys on the signature Free outsole and other computer parts to make up this size 9.5, 15 lb. shoe. These are definitely one of the best pieces of sneaker ‘art’ we’ve seen in a long while, so check out the gallery of Gabriel Dishaw‘s Nike Free Run Y2K below and let us know what you think.
