It takes some amount of courage to sacrifice a pair of Jordans for the sake of a custom colorway. It takes another level entirety to be able to let yours get ripped into shreds for the sake of a gas mask. That’s not to say you’re not gonna get quality work, as Freehand Profit definitely knows what he’s doing, but we’d imagine it’s still tough to see a favorite pair go in the name of art. This latest work appropriates the Air Jordan V “Grape”, doing particularly well with the purple tongue of those shoes. Continue reading to see the latest pair of Jordans turned into a piece of headgear from Freehand Profit (Revealed at Sneaker Lifestyle 2013 in Montreal) and tell us what you think in the comments.

He's clearly not worried about the 06's he's got on when he poses like that. I don't get the whole mask thing but w/e it's his cash

Like @freewheelburnin said, it's his passion and he aint doing this for nobody but himself. When you have a ton of sneakers and extra pairs to play with it aint nothing to rip a sneaker apart or burn it for pleasure. At the end of the day, they just some pair of sneakers. Looks awesome

the mask is reminiscent of a character out of a transformers movie.

What you children don't realize is people have been doing this for ten plus years. They aren't doing it for you, so why would they give two shits what some punk kid with GR's from 2012 and 13 thinks? Exactly. So run along children, go hop in your "He Got Games".

People nowadays are not happy to just lace up their sneaker on how it supposed to be. Now they include their head. Whats next? Sneaker in both hands? Then shirt made of sneaker etc.

It takes a lot of work to do this, so he must have some time on his hands. It's creative but there really is no point to it, you can't walk on the street with a sneaker gas mask on or you might get arrested.

Aside from the artistic value which is at a near zeroed level here, please stop. This is the most pointless thing pretty much ever. Learn how to paint or something.

@Stephen Densmore who the fuck made you king of art...i would say the amount of work he puts into these "sculptures" is worth much more than any painting you've ever made

@ZacIsNug_BP - Shut up, dork. Shoes are meant to be worn on the feet, not dissected, and turned into some queer looking masks.
