'ABUKU'
using sports as a creative starting point, a group of artists and designers have been asked
to challenge the function of a pair of nike shoes. initiated by uk graphic designer
paul jenkins, 78 pairs of nike shoes were distributed to creatives worldwide from
multi-disciplinary backgrounds. an exhibition titled 'nike78' showcasing the outcomes
is planned for london design festival 2010.

'ABUKU' by japanese graphic studio wieden + kennedy tokyo LAB received the
AIR MAX 360 for their challenge. as the feature emphasized on this model was its
air-sole, the studio decided to create a final project based on the concept of air.

'what we did was keep the soles filled with air as is, but take off the upper part of the
shoe and use it to mold a clear material into that shape. this became an aquarium for
goldfish, a representative aquarium fish in japan. we hope that the people who see this
small aquarium built on nike air will stop to think about the artificial/natural environments
that surround us and the connection between humans and other living creatures. ' - WKTL

'made for'
upon observing that he smoked more in his nike trainers than doing actual exercise,
UK designer and photographer jason turner created 'made for', a shoe that exaggerates
on the unhealthy habits of humans.

'I can safely say that I also spend more time smoking in my shoes each day than doing
proper exercise. the photograph is an exaggeration of this mentality, done in the hope
to inspire more sport. so next time you look down at your sad pristine nikes when having
a smoke or a drink, just remember what they were made for.' JT


'the takeover'
UK designer nicola ryan's 'the takeover' features a skin that breaths, absorbs, stretches
and ages. like organic matter, its existence is a fine balance between life and decay.

'nike free your mind MK 1'
'nike free your mind MK 1' by UK global agency wieden + kennedy london started from
the concept of athletes who trained barefoot in order to make their feet stronger. upon playing
with the model they received, the studio soon noticed that the hyper-extended sole took on the
appearance of grey matter, each section of the sole resembling the lobes of a human brain.
they knew from this point that they wanted to create something that was centered around
the human brain and sport.

part of their intention was to take this as far as possible and subvert it to the ridiculous.
they wanted audiences to ask themselves if a healthy brain was more important than a
healthy body? and if there was a point of a healthy body without a healthy brain?
this piece seeks to get people thinking about the power and importance of sport in
making humans feel good.




'100m nikes'
the 100 metre sprint is arguably the most iconic of all the olympic events. it defines the
fastest men and women on the planet, with nike carrying countless olympians across
the finish line. here, these nike shoes have been removed from their conventional context
and crafted into the length of 100m; a symbol of the sporting feats that athletes have achieved.
this piece titled '100m nikes' was done by paul cooke.

'these shoes are made for kicking’
upon receiving shoes that did not seem to fit in with the theme of 'sport', UK graphic
designer stephen cheetham wanted to recycle the shoes into something that underscored
the idea of physical activity through its aesthetics. the result was a football titled
'these shoes are made for kicking' which reuses the materials from the original shoes
and its packaging.
