How many Nike Air Max classics can you recall named after food items? Notables include the “Crepe” pack of Nike Air Max releases and the timeless Nike Air Max 90 “Bacon” from DQM. Topping those in terms of actual confectionery value are these Nike Air Max 1 sculptures from Joost Goudriann. The creations use actual Nike Air Max 1 models as their base, dipping them in liquid chocolate in what results as one of the tastier sneaker projects we’ve ever seen. Get a look at both after the jump and then give us your thoughts on Joost Goudriaan’s chocolate Nike Air Max 1 sculptures.
This is a size ten leather air max 1 treated with silicone rubber to create a mould around it, then removed from the mould (and worn again). The mould is used to cast the chocolate, at first with a brush (like 'painting' with chocolate, to achieve the details without bubbles or unevenesses) then casted in several sessions. After that it was finished with a small and hot knife to get rid of any irregularities. This one consists of approximately 900 grams of chocolate. Nothing else.
