Nike Classics Album Trainers by Patso Dimitrov
Take a walk around the city and we guarantee you’ll see at least one Joe donning a t-shirt of his favourite band. We Joes love a band t-shirt and if you’re one of them, it’s time to rejoice – a Danish designer has come up with a new way for you to show your music allegiances… on your Nikes, of course!
The Nike classic album designs are the work of Copenhagen-based designer Patso Dimitrov. Patso has reworked a collection of iconic Nike basketball trainers to feature the album artwork of five famed records.
Sprawled across the side of a KD8 is Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures can be seen on some Lebron 12 Lows, Guns N’ Roses’ Appetite for Destruction has been placed on the Kobe X, A Tribe Called Quest’s Low End Theory has been painted on the Kyrie 1 and our favourite is Daft Punk’s Alive which can be found some Hyperchases!
The stitching, patterned insoles, and the customised colourways all add a unique character of each of shoe and we think merch stands across the nation should be paying attention. Forget your badges, forget your posters – we want band trainers!
Unfortunately we won’t be able to buy any of Patso’s collection. They’re not for sale. This is just an excellent piece of product design that will leave a lingering want in your heart. You can check out more of Dimitrov’s work as well as more images of the collection on his Behance Page.
