Nike Los Angeles City Dunk Installation at 144 LAB

As kids, we would throw up our beat up sneakers and try to hang them on telephone poles or electrical wires. This is the concept Nike based their installation on for their setup at the 144 LAB in Los Angeles. Many pairs of the Nike Los Angeles City Dunks were hung on a wire at the gallery. This installation will be there from February 9th to February 16th so if you’re in town, go check this one out. Source: Eddie Cruz
