The latest installment of “classic sneakers morphing into unexpected objects” is definitely a strange one. Artist Filfury (Yes that’s the guy who made the Nike Air assault weapons) decided that the world didn’t have enough skulls and bugs sporting colorways from your favorite sneakers and decided to do something about it.

@John2581 who design??? are u referring to the gas mask?
@ars3nic Reebok Shaq Attack
John2581 again Jordan 14 blk/red r rip off? Kobe Xmas 2011 r rip off, too? NO, the point is CREATIVITY, when tinker field design sneaker NO1 called them rip off, he was inspired by many design. Know the meaning of "inspired" and "rip off", rip off are when some one takes a pair of Nikes design and then take off Nike and slapping on Reebok, that's RIPPING OFF
I'm pretty sure the whole point of the project was to take shoes Nike has already released, and form something cool with them.
@luvjones361 These are very creative and look pretty cool. However, his ideas and color schemes came straight from the work of other designers. Same with the cell phone cases that just use prints and CWs from shoes are a straight rip off. There is originality in the design, but not in the inspiration.
So a kid who make art w/ macaroni is ripping off Kraft? It's ART u hypebeast trying to b a anti hypebeast!! And good sh!t to the artist who came up these design
