Nike Air Max 2011 Junk Art

Nike Air Max 2011 Junk Art

Sneakerheads and sneaker culture derive from a multitude of sources. It is hard to pinpoint exactly where and when sneaker collecting started but we would all like to believe that art has a little to do with it. We all have shoes in our closet that are just too special for us to wear.

Today, artist Gabriel Dishaw from Indianapolis, Indiana, takes the artistic aspect of sneaker culture to another level. He has created one of his favorite sneakers of the year, the Nike Air Max 2011, from a collection of what most people would consider ‘junk’. By using scraps from old computer motherboards, typewriter cases, USB ports, chipsets, and 747 airplane oxygen masks, he has accurately portrayed one of this year’s most innovative sneaker creations. The piece took almost three weeks (90 hours) to complete and includes some really intuitive details such as the use of a USB port where the Nike+ usually is located. Check out more photos below, and let us know what you think about this piece.
