When we think of Finish Line employees we think of retired high school athletes with no artistic prowess.  Boy, we couldn’t have been more wrong.

Gabriel Dishaw of Indianapolis created these Nike Airmax 2011 sneakers using “a motherboard, an old typewriter case, a USB port, chipsets, power connectors and even an oxygen mask from a 747 airplane”.

While we’re pretty sure the sneakers can’t be worn, they do serve a purpose.  What is it?  To exemplify reusing and recycling by leveraging an iconic brand that will surely draw attention and  hence this post.

On another note, this is Dishaw’s 50th sculpture and 19th junk art shoe – he started producing them when he was in 9th grade and is now 30.
