No.199: adidas Dame 5 “Black Panther” Helmet

Black Panther sneaker mask by Freehand Profit
The 199th sneaker mask created by Freehand Profit. Made from 3 pairs of adidas Dame 5 x Marvel. Find out more about the work on FREEHANDPROFIT.com.

There are so many masks to be made, I’m often asked when I’ll get around to creating masks of our favorite pop culture icons. Often the answer is “When the time is right.” Sometimes that means finding the right collector or collaborator, sometimes that means finding the right shoe. adidas and Marvel delivered with the Black Panther Dame 5.

And who better to model the Black Panther sneaker mask than Gui DaSilva-Greene @guidasilva! He’s modeled sneaker masks before (Yeezy 350 & Alphabounce) but more significantly here is that he’s the stunt double for a number of MCU films including Black Panther. How legit is that?! Gui is an absolute pleasure to work with, insanely talented – truly humbled to have this come full circle like that.
