This Nike Air VaporMax “VaporWave” Custom Pays Homage to Japanese Artist Katsushika Hokusai

Featuring the artists’ revered “Great Wave” impression.

Drawing creative influence from revered Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai’s famed ukiyo-e woodblock prints is this themed Nike Air VaporMax model from custom sneaker artist Ceeze. Dubbed “VaporWave,” the uppers take on a color scheme comprised of varying shades of blue, with the intricate impression work hitting the heel to side panel region. A closer look at the artistic rendering reveals Hokuasi’s “Great Wave” design along with a mountainous landscape and miniature boat sketches floating off in the backdrop. Rounding out the custom rework is the icy blue Air-infused sole unit. For a closer look, drop by Ceeze’s online shop today.
