The Shoe Surgeon Gives the Air Jordan 1 the IKEA Treatment
An inevitable sneaker mashup.
The Shoe Surgeon has teamed up with Los Angeles designer Elliott Evan for an “IKEA Pack” that includes a custom pair of Air Jordan 1 field boots and a bomber jacket all made from IKEA‘s FRAKTA bag material. Only 10 pairs and 10 jackets will be made to order in each customer’s size. The pack, which will also include an instruction manual reminiscent of that of IKEA products, will cost $1,500 USD and drop on May 20.
Two lucky purchasers will also receive a custom yellow leather Balenciaga x IKEA-inspired tote bag. In the week prior to the release, The Shoe Surgeon will leave one manual at the IKEA store in Carson, Los Angeles, which will grant one lucky fan an “IKEA Pack” in his or her size.
