Frankenstein’s Nike

By Jonathan Smith on December 30th, 2008


The Nike Mad Jibe is the Frankenstein’s monster of the Nike collection, part boat shoe and part Dunk- oddly it works.

Pedantry Corner: Barack Obama’s ‘O-face’ t-shirt

The man comes in many guises including a t-shirt we featured a few weeks ago and one we featured a few months ago, and now you could (maybe) have his visage on your feet with these Mobama Dunks.

Artist Virtual Mo created these at the Nike Innovation Kitchen and have Obama’s face lasered onto the toe box of the right shoe as well as other laser printed details. Release wise there are only two pairs in existence, but rumour has it that as the Presidential Election heats up there may be a limited release of these bad boys, so keep your ear to the ground.
