A recent ‘list’ pointing out the ten ‘rules’ of sneakerheadism suggested we throw out our shoeboxes. This following artwork, put together by Portland-based artist Joel Colley (who also worked on the ParaNormans) for the Nike Graphic Studio Art Show this Saturday, is a collective piece of the Nike shoeboxes in the brand’s history that suggests box-stockpiling isn’t a bad idea. Today, we’re given the option of brown and orange with a few extras bearing the Nike Skateboarding or LeBron/Kobe name, but part of Nike’s amazing history is actually in these sick shoebox designs – most of which we’ve shown you before in our vintage Nike shoebox feature last August. There are certain pieces in here that’ll induce the “oh yeah, I remember that!” and the “what the, when did this happen?” so check out this sick piece by Colley after the jump and let us know which your favorite Nike shoebox is!
