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.
