Chinese Designer Creates Sandal / Air Jordan Mashup
According to Neocha, a site devoted to all things creative in China, designer Wang Zhijun has whipped up a crazy concept shoe that combines a pair of throwback Nike Air Jordan IVs with an old 1980s Chinese sandal-like shoe. He has taken the sole of the Air Jordans, and then added on a top piece that works in an open strap design that retains the Nike shoe shape and logo.
For anyone living in Beijing during summer time, this might be a great way to keep a sporty look while allowing your feet to breathe a little at the same time. Maybe Nike should consider hiring on Wang as a part of their design team, because this is a super clever idea.
I'm not sure if he has settled on a name, but Air Jesus could be a fun - albiet controversial - choice...
