The macabre-looking visage of a gas mask with the American stars and stripes hanging in the background? No, it’s not the latest bit of Banksy artwork – it’s another chopped and screwed sneaker by Freehand Profit. Using the recently dropped Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ Retro and a patriotic backdrop for this photoshoot, Freehand Profit unveils his latest Gas Mask donned in a familiar Red, White, and Blue, with a volunteer model willing to un-deadstock his own Air Jordan VI ‘Olympics’, acting as the podium. This Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ will be featured in Freehand’s book titled ‘Army Of The Undeadstock’, which will feature more than 100 pages of sneaker masks – some we have yet to see. More of this Olympic variety after the jump!
Are you sure you can smoke outta that thing? I would think the ones used to smoke would have to be made differently. I thought they did this as art, not a smoking apparatus. Never thought of that. I've never messed with any type of mask when smoking. Why would you want that smoke all up on your face gettin in your pores. Seems nasty. But, doing it to olympic 6s??? Thats like burning the flag man. NOT COOL
The Mask is For getting super high (with additive) after he has put in 14 hours of work upholstering car interiors at some custom car shop.His skills in the shop have paid off by letting him buy and destroy expensive kicks efficeintly. Then sew them back together into a glorified bong. Interesting hobby.
some one please explain why people make gas masks out of shoes. call me stupid but i dont get the whole gas mask thing
I'm start to feel the gas mask lately. Its not like you can rock it or anything like that but its a good piece of art
@sneakykicks that shit is lame
