Not many have the cojones to take a pair of heavy duty scissors to their Air Jordan Retros, but Freehand Profit has steadily proven his skills as one of the best sneaker surgeons out there. He’s slowly building a quirky legacy as one of the most unique sneaker customizers out there, reconstituting Air Jordans into gas masks (what you do with them is entirely up to you). His latest creation and first release of 2012 is with the Air Jordan III Black/Cement, but if you’re already anticipating a ‘Concord’ gas mask, no need to fret because he’s confirmed those as well. Check out the gallery of his latest sneaker gas mask and if you want to add these to your collection of miscellaneous goodies, go to the Freehand Profit online shop.
he must be gettin them directly from the china sweatshops for like $5 a pair...or he is doing personal "favors" for nike employees. idk, idc, i just wish i had the money and/or connects to fck up a pair of $100+ kicks.
WOW.... I've never saw so much hate in my life..... Damn if he paid for the Js, THEN WHO CARES what he does with them?!?! I mean, who is really gonna lose sleep cause this person decided to make a gas mask out of shoes HE PURCHASED?!?!? Lame asses...
Dope stuff, I saw this in person at sneakercon LA and you have to appreciate it for what it is, and that's art and dude is real humble, cools peoples...keep doing ur thing bro, might see ur stuff at the MOCA one day...
Lol another gas mask. Someones either thinking about MW3 to much or just smokes a lot of weed cuz those are the only 2 things a gas mask can relate to now a days.
I hope this gas mask does work to filter out some of yall hating ass comments! Go chew some barwire gum and gargle Listerine ASAP!
Can someone please tell me why a gas mask? Is there any other use for it apart from the obvious???? Looks great though.
Those were perfectly good pair of cement 3's that somebody wanted but couldn't get cuz they didn't get they check in time. But this asshole decides to mess them up. I hate ppl who wear Jordan because of fashion and trends. I collect Jordan's because the love I have for the game and what basketball represent. It's not just a sport. Basketball is a way of life
Can anyone shed some light on why this is cool? Been collecting J's for over 20 years now and i dont understand the gas mask thing, I have no want to wear that thing unless it can put those 3's back on my feet!!!!
You must be damn foolish if you think this is actually meant for street wear; Its obviously an art piece.
Met him at Sneaker Con. You can actually blaze out of the masks if that helps everyone here and they look cool a$$ fcuk. They're one of a kind works of art and when he creates a whole series of them a gallery would be awesome. If people here don't get it then ya just a bunch of hood boogers who dont understand art.
oh shuttup he paid HIS good money for them and created it into art, and wtf r u talking about there are SOOO MANY pairs of this shoe and it's not like rape resale prices
Not only does it work to protect these retards here from inhaling anymore Asbestos but you can also smoke out of it :)
He is a sneaker head and I take it he like graffiti. Also if you check his link it may say that it is a MASK365 project where the mask is the base of the art project.
