Freehand Profit’s custom gas masks are currently on display at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art +Design, but he’s already got another treat for us in case you’re not in the area to check out the exhibit for yourself. Take a look at the latest gas mask constructed from the Air Jordan X ‘Chicago’; what separates this particular mask from his previous design is that the mask utilizes two entire pairs, which essentially doubles the amount of labor needed to complete this work. You can see all Jumpman logos from the heels on ‘forehead’ of the mask, with the uppers used as armor-like plates that extend beyond the temple. Freehand Profit states that these will officially go on sale once the exhibition is over, so if you have any interest in grabbing this unique collectible piece, check out the detailed gallery below and wait ’til the exhibit comes to an end this May 20th!
You guys cant understand art, its a pair of freakin Jordans you guys act he took gold and stuck on it a Mc Donalds cup. Hes been doing this for YEARS and has made masks out of sneakers worth more and more rare than these piece of crap Jordan retros or crappy All star dunks. If there ever was a such thing as a hater, Ive found them all. KILL THE HYPE!!!!!
Yall some hatin ass niggas there just a pair of shoes he bought them and do wat he wants with em. Dat shit fresh as fuck step yall sneaka game up and yall will stop and admire dis shit instead of hatin. A real sneaka head see's them as a pair of shoes that can be replaced and fake ass bumb ass sneaka hype beast worships them
everyone who trips over this guy doing what he does with HIS SHOES needs to seriously calm down. Like damn, you guys must ride JBs d**k every fcukkking day. bunch of losers tripping over DAMN SHOES.
The following isn't a treat: If I see him making mask out of Jordan XI, I will skin him and make a gas mask.
theyre just shoes, who cares if they are new balances or jordans, people makin crazy comments either dont have connects or cash cause 2 pair of chicago 10's isnt $h!t. Props for the art and creativity, add extra for making people fuss and complain about brand new shoes. (I wear my what the dunks)
sneaker news please stop posting about these lame masks made out of shoes. i thought this place was suppose to be about sneaks, i would go to a different site if i wanted to see masks made out of shoes. freal who would wear this? i don't see the point. jordans are works of art and should not be tampered with in any way. question, would anyone take the mona lisa and try making a mask out of it?
Man, this guy is getting annoying destroying perfectly good pairs of sneakers just to make some freaking masks that don't even work..smdh What a waste..
First off wut the f is up with the gas mask movement...i mean really? Gas masks? Second, somebody get me this dude's address so i can steal his closet.....and another thing, im sry sneakernews i love yall, but y are u showing this? Stuff like this KIIIIILLLLSSSS sneakheads.

He already did it to a pair of Concords. It's awful - http://freehandprofit.wordpress.com/2012/02/29/ne...
Sells them for a big profit. What the buyers do with them is beyond me. I know it's art but that's not the kind of art i'd be displaying in my house that's for sure
