What you see above is not a photoshopped image! This is a real Nike sneaker replica, dubbed ‘Junk Dunk‘, conceived and built by Gabriel Dishaw, who is a distinguished Metal sculpture artist. Iâm not sure how it feels to walk around in those shoes, but this is one hell of a (excruciating!) way to pay a tribute. Gabriel âconstructedâ these âFrankensteinish Terminatorâ replicas of his favorite Nike sneakers from old computer and typewriter parts and a few rusted sprockets and nuts. After examining the creativity on this thing, I must admit heâs an ardent fan of them Nike Sneakers. However so, thereâs still no way in this frigginâ earth one can dunk in those, atleast if he doesnât want to spend the entirety of his life in a wheel chair or in the least, end up with severed toes. To tell you the extent of his obsession for building these metallic Nike imitations, Gabriel even sacrificed one of his beloved shoes to provide a sole for the replica shown below. Hard work really paid off, as the end result is even way cooler than the originals. No matter how much I like them, my mortal bod doesnât allow me to wear these âfuturistic looking steampunkâ shoes. But you canât stop the crazies from doing anything for their zeal. So, even with the âwoundingâ risks involved, if you still are hell bent on wearing these sneakers, I would suggest you take a tetanus shot before that and wear real thick socks. LOL. All kudos to the designer, Gabriel Dishaw, for coming up with such freaking cool ideas. But still, one thing is for sure, a few freebies, save for the praise, if you dare to wear these sneakers are, severe pain, blisters and in the worst case, amputated toes. Via: Make]]>
