Air Jordan “Stealth” III (3) Gas Mask

“With the multi-headed, ADHD dripping Gods of Consumerism slowly but surely pushing the old religions out, where do we turn when we lose our faith?

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…

Air Jordan VI (6) “Black Infrared” Gas Mask

Masks serve a number of functions, possibly more than ever in modern society. They have breathed life into ceremonies and performances since the ancients.
