Wang Zhijun has gotten a bit of attention for his amazing sneaker mask creations, especially the one he made out of an adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2. Other publications outside of the sneaker community are taking notice as well and Quartz just released a quick profile video on the young talent. In the vid, Zhijun explains that he was frustrated of living day to day in a smog-filled country. Most of the population wear generic face masks to combat the unsanitary air and they weren’t comfortable at all — so he created his own versions cut from sneakers that were not only comfy, but also functional and stylish.

He’s done masks out of other models as well such as the popular Nike Air Max 90, ACRONYM Nike Air Presto, and even PUMA kicks. All in all, the most important thing for Zhijun is that he’s raising awareness of the pollution problems in China. Watch the video and let us know your thoughts.
