Before these shoes were chopped up and remastered into gas masks or Gundam-like figurines, Vinti Andrews, a collaborative duo comprised of London-based Vinti Tan and Paul Andrews, has been recreating life-sized dog sculptures with some keynote kicks. Back in 2009, we showed you an Air Jordan V and Nike Air dog sculpture they did, with Nike itself commissioning the duo to create some special pieces for special events. This one’s got a focus on this year’s All-Star Weekend sneaker capsule known as “Area 72”, with the LeBron X, Kobe 8, Barkley Posite Max, and much more making up the anatomy of the Nike Area 72 Pitbull Dog. We’ve got some views of the complete piece as well as some of the making-of stages, so check it out below and leave us a comment.
