We understand that LeBron fans are riding high off the heels of his first-ever NBA Title. But to chop up a pair of gems like the Nike Zoom LeBron IV ‘Dunkman’? Did Freehand Profit inhale some of that funny gas that he intended to avoid? In all seriousness, we have to applaud not only the craftsmanship, but the unbridled display of sneaker sacrifice; we’ve seem him chop up the Concords, Black/Cement IIIs, and other goodies in macabre style, but the Zoom LeBron IV ‘Dunkman’ eclipses all of those shoes combined in terms of rarity because unless you’re part of LeBron’s immediate circle, you’re shelling out a ton of rupees to get these. Whatever burning bush or shoebox has been telling Freehand has obviously led to some insane sneaker gas mask creations, so what could he go with next? It’s been quite some time since we’ve last seen one of Freehand’s work so take a look below and let us know what you think.

Sneaker customizer (and we use that term somewhat loosely) Freehand Profit has made a name for himself with gasmask versions of popular kicks since we first saw his take on the Air Jordan 1 last April.  His latest might be the most obscure design employed to date, the Mighty Crown x Nike Sky Force 88 Lows that commemorated the Japanese sound system’s 20th anniversary last fall.  Like the Dunk Highs that accompanied them, Mighty Crown’s Sky Forces were a rich amalgamation of textures, and this mask’s silvery build is all the better for it.  Check out more photos below, let us know how these compare to standouts like the Swoosh-browed ‘Galaxy’ Dunk mask and stick with Sneaker News for all the best new customs.

Air Jordan X ‘Chicago’ Gas Mask By Freehand Profit

Freehand Profit’s custom gas masks are currently on display at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art +Design, but he’s already got another treat for us in case you’re not in the area to check out the exhibit for yourself. Take a look at the latest gas mask constructed from the Air Jordan X ‘Chicago’; what separates this particular mask from his previous design is that the mask utilizes two entire pairs, which essentially doubles the amount of labor needed to complete this work. You can see all Jumpman logos from the heels on ‘forehead’ of the mask, with the uppers used as armor-like plates that extend beyond the temple. Freehand Profit states that these will officially go on sale once the exhibition is over, so if you have any interest in grabbing this unique collectible piece, check out the detailed gallery below and wait ’til the exhibit comes to an end this May 20th!

Let’s be real here: nobody in their right mind is going to dismantle a pair of Galaxy Foamposites! But luckily the, the Rogue Green colorway of the Dunk High makes for a perfect gas mask, and so Freehand Profit, maker of these funky sneaker mash concoctions, had his way with pair of Galaxy Dunk Highs, using the Galaxy-lined interior at the nose of the mask for that tiny hint of outer-space flair. This particular piece of work by Freehand Profit will be in a special exhibition titled ‘Crossing The Line’ held at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art +Design, part of a series of alumni-created artwork from the past five decades of the school’s history. You can see this mask alongside two of his other masterpieces on display, but if you can’t be there in person, check out the gallery below.

Not many have the cojones to take a pair of heavy duty scissors to their Air Jordan Retros, but Freehand Profit has steadily proven his skills as one of the best sneaker surgeons out there. He’s slowly building a quirky legacy as one of the most unique sneaker customizers out there, reconstituting Air Jordans into gas masks (what you do with them is entirely up to you). His latest creation and first release of 2012 is with the Air Jordan III Black/Cement, but if you’re already anticipating a ‘Concord’ gas mask, no need to fret because he’s confirmed those as well. Check out the gallery of his latest sneaker gas mask and if you want to add these to your collection of miscellaneous goodies, go to the Freehand Profit online shop.

One meaning for the word ‘simulacra’ is an image without the substance or qualities of the original, so what happens when you take a non-original Air Jordan IV colorway, apply its key details to the body of an Air Force 1 Low and then chop that up to make something that looks like, but has none of the most practical benefits of a gas mask?  The simplest answer is that this is the newest example of the now daily growing body of sneaker art, the latest in a series of similar looks from artist Freehand Profit, who’s looking to convey the need for attention not only to fly kicks, but the state of the world around us.  Check out more angles after the jump and let us know how the sneaker gas masks rank against other sculptures and art pieces we’ve spotlighted here on Sneaker News.
