The Playoff 8 Gas Mask originally released September 15, 2014. Normally I add a little more insight to the writing aspect on these remastered photos but well it’s Friday night and I still have more work to do. Plus I summed it up rather well the first time around, here’s an excerpt:

“Appropriately enough, the 80th sneaker mask I’ve created was made from Air Jordan 8s. This is the first mask I’ve made using the Jordan 8 model and was made using just a single pair of “Playoff” Retros from 2013.  The mask features carved lens frames to imitate the VIII’s midsole while the shoe’s liner overflows to the gas mask’s air canister. When the Jordan 8 first released in ’93 with it’s straps, plush padding and carpeted tongue it was a big change from the previous minimalist Jordan 7 design – all the excess of the Jordan VIII meant plenty of materials for me to work with.” – Freehand Profit
