Sneaker Customiser Cass Plays With the ‘MCA’ Off-White x Nike Air Force 1
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree for the Hirsts. Cassius Hirst, son of conceptual artist Damien, has been making a name for himself customising sneakers.
Cass has altered 20 individually numbered pairs, with white blots on the medial and lateral sides of the upper, plus some overspray stencil work. According to MCA Chicago, where they’re being exclusively sold, only a few pairs remain.
Get in quick if you’ve got $3000 to spare. Pairs can only be purchased at MCA Chicago, where Abloh has had an ongoing exhibition.
