Extreme Edible Fashion: The Nike Hamburger Shoe
We've seen edible fashion items that not only make a tasty snack, they also offer fashionable coverage. The Nike Hamburger Shoe, created by Olle Hemmendorff, is an example of extreme edible fashion that is anything but practical. Read on and decide if the hamburger shoe is better as fashion or food.
The Nike Hamburger shoe was part of an expose in Vice Magazine, where 8 creatives were asked to interpret Nike sportswear icons. The Nike Hamburger shoe, created by Olle Hemmendorff, fashion guru and freelance art creative, is meant to illustrate Nike's Air Max 90. While he could have chosen any material to re-design the Nike sneaker, Hemmendorff chose to use the hamburger to create his extreme edible fashion item. Because, obviously, the hamburger is the "most powerful, most durable, and most delicious material know to man" (at least according to the innovative fashion designer).
The extreme edible fashion sneaker is dressed like a fully-loaded hamburger, including cheese, sesame bun, triple decker patties, tomatoes and ketchup. This weird and wacky fashion may not be practical for everyday wear, but it sure will make you hungry.
Back to the question of fashion or food; while my heart says food, my mind leans towards fashion. It may not truly be wearable, but neither are half of the peculiar items that find themselves on display on the runways.
