CLOT x Nike Air Force 1 Sneaker Mask by Zhijun Wang

Silky smooth.

By //Footwear

Zhijun Wang‘s intricately crafted sneaker masks have become the stuff of legend, with the Chinese creative’s stunning Air VaporMax and UNDEFEATED x Nike masks going viral. The artist’s most recent creation is a revision of CLOT’s recently-released Air Force 1 collaboration.

The fragile silk upper has been lifted off the shoe and patched into the familiar shape of an air filter mask. Eyelets — with the laces still attached — break up the front of the design, separating the filter from the mouth cover. The Nike-branded heel tab appears towards the rear, while the leather Swooshes are located on the left and right sides. After snapping some pics, the artist gave the mask to Edison Chen of CLOT, who declared the completed work a “MASTER PEACE.”

Check out the in-progress pictures below along with the finished creation. Most recently, Wang introduced a bespoke mask for Takashi Murakami that blended camouflage, Louis Vuitton branding and a Virgil Abloh x Nike Air Jordan 1.
