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? With Heaven so far away, are there enough worldly pleasures to drape ourselves in? Is the world coming to an end or are we?  The gas mask protects, not just our…

Air Jordan VIII “Playoff” Gas Mask

Appropriately enough, the 80th sneaker mask I’ve created was made from Air Jordan 8s.

Jordan IX “Doernbecher” Mask

The Doernbecher 9 Mask may be my 78th mask, but it is the first mask to be built on a entirely custom base, made up of different masks and mask parts. I shot it in Los Angeles with good friend Julio Tellez (@chewlio) – you may recognize him (or his tattoos at least lol) from…

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. A mask can instill fear, disguise a criminal or cover a surgeon’s mouth. Masks not only obscure a physical identity but can also express identities unseen. The sneaker masks I’ve created…

A Tribute to the Crew known as Wu: 3 New Sneaker Masks by Freehand Profit

No Foolin’! New mask made from infamous Jordan “Bin 23” Vs

 Even I cringed at the thought when my buddy Henry, known as the artist- DeathVSLife, suggested sacrificing his ‘Bin 5’s to the Chopping Block last summer. As I’ve mentioned in interviews, the Vs are my favorite from the Jordan line-up and cutting up a high holy grail like the Bins was daunting. And even though I’m…
