Chocolate Nike Air Max 1 Sculpture by Joost Goudriaan
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.
I'm not gonna lie, at first glance at the first picture, i thought it was the actual shoe in a "chocolate" colorway! major props on the detail put into this piece. unbelievable.
that is some unreal talent right there. way to think outside the box. everything from the "leather" to the stitching and laces look so real.
@EvilRamen is right. It's impossible to create any detail when dipped.
