Talented visual artist Patso Dimitrov has decided to merge together the worlds of music and footwear by serving several new spins on sneakers inspired by some of his favorite albums. Using six high-profile basketball sneakers as his template, Dimitrov honors releases from Kanye West, David Bowie, A Tribe Called Quest, Chance the Rapper, The Weeknd and J. Cole by reworking the shoes into items that match with the artwork of specific albums. Kanye West’s Life of Pablo fuses with the adidas Harden Vol. 1, The Weeknd’s Starboy mixes with the Under Armour Curry 3, J. Cole’s 4 Your Eyez Only meets the Nike Kyrie 3, A Tribe Called Quest clashes with the Nike Kobe A.D., Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book adds a new look to the Nike KD9 and David Bowie’s Blackstar switches up with Nike LeBron 14. You can check out shots of the new, album-inspired sneaker designs above.
