Not only do I have a new sneaker mask for you, but it’s also the first Nike Kobe mask. My 175th sneaker mask was created from 2 pairs of Nike Kobe 9 EXTs. I took the creative freedom to add premium red suede to the palette, I think it adds a luxury look to a regal mask.

The red cloak was beautifully made by Betsy VanDeusen, who also photographed me wearing the mask. Gloves by Supreme, hoody & pants by 8 & 9 Clothing. The weapon, called a “force pike”, was made from a shower rod and various plastic & toy scraps – man I love a good kit bash!

The Nike Kobe 9 EXT may seem an obvious choice but think about how many all red kicks there are out there now. But an Imperial Guard helmet made from the shoes of a legendary shooting guard? C’mon son – do the math. Speaking of which, it’s no coincidence that the full gallery below contains 24 photos.
