Since its inception in the mid 1980s, the Nike Air Jordan 1 High has had a relentless presence in the market. Moreover, the history, design and fervor of such an iconic pair not only entices wearers and collectors, but also artists. For her latest project, artist Natalie Wong reinterpreted Michael Jordan’s first signature shoe into “100 Paper Sneakers.” In the video above, Wong takes viewers through her meticulous process in creating a paper rendition of the pair. She slices, cuts and glues all of the pieces together to form the silhouette which undeniably boasts a slew of colorways.
“Sneaker culture has made the sneaker into an art form. Many people don’t wear sneakers but collect them and display them at home,” the artist told HYPEBEAST. “I wanted to reflect this by actually making artwork based on the sneaker design that launched the culture of sneaker collecting.”
