Franken-Sneaker

flesh nike shoe

In an effort to make a statement on sweatshop labor and content ownership, artist Adam Brandejs has constructed an animatronic Nike sneaker which appears to be made of human skin. In actuality, the piece is made up of latex prosthesis cast from the skin of the artist.

“Each piece of skin is a different in color, size, and texture and the Nike Logo is done in white, slapped overtop of all the other colors. Really, either you’re going to get it or you’re not. “

I'd buy a pair of these, but only if they were made from the real skin of a 8 year old boy from Vietnam.

These "sweatshops" help to feed peoples' families. They make a good wage for THEIR country.
