The latest What If features a collaboration between Adidas and Elijah Justice. For this piece I decided to apply my new Distorted Midnight Camouflage™ pattern to the popular Adidas Superstar 80 sneaker. Normally the collection features stand out pattern work. This time I decided to simplify things and only design the stripes of the shoe. This simple design can become versatile for this Adidas silhouette, and make its' owner stand out from the crowd.
Well Halloween is here and there's no better way to celebrate then eating candy corn and watching scary movies. I didn't decide to create this sneaker till October 30th. All along I thought I would create a candy corn themed sneaker. After talking with some friends, I wanted to go down a more scary route.
My brother and I have spent countless hours watching Friday the 13th movies, so naturally I thought, "What if there was a Jason Voorhees inspired sneaker?" Twenty-four hours later, a new sneaker was created. I didn't include the shoe box in this piece because I really wanted to focus on the details of the shoe. This new look is something I will consider when creating future shoes. Enjoy. 🔪 Click here for a hi-res picture.
Cheetos are definitely a staple from my childhood. Whether they are regular, flamin' hot, or the hot popcorn, Cheetos were always good to me. As soon as I finished my bag, I instantly had to grab a napkin and wash my hands. I decided to further investigate the question, "What if Adidas and Cheetos collaborated?".
In my last post I talked about my recent pickup of Adidas latest shoe, the Stan Smith. So it was only right that I created a completely unique shoe using Cheetos and the Stan Smith silhouette.
Well today I bring you two new interesting collaborations for the "What If" collection. I recently bought a pair of Adidas Stan Smiths and they are beyond comfortable. Due to my great satisfaction, I knew I had to create a design for this shoe.
This collaboration is between Adidas and Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles. I have never been to Roscoe's, but I do know that chicken and waffles are very delicious. Here's a possible look at if Adidas and Roscoe's collaborated.
So about a month ago, a friend asked me if I could recreate a model of shoes he just picked up. He recently bought the Adidas Watermelon Halfshell 80s. However, he is a big fan of Hennessy. Then he said, wouldn't it be dope if they made some Hennessy Halfshells? And I was like, yeah that'd be dope for sure. Then we talked about creating an illustration of what the shoes would possibly look like. And now here it is!
I'm starting a new collection of shoe illustrations called "What If?" This will be me mixing unique shoes with whatever I feel like fits. Example: Adidas x Hennessy, Nike x Pepsi, Louis Vuitton x Starburst, etc. So be on the lookout for these original pieces that I plan to create.
