A highlight of last weekend’s Hypefest was the ‘Never Made’ section where creators were allowed free reign over a collection of adidas’ sneaker panels, materials and cushioning. Assembling a fire design from a bunch of sneaker parts is harder than you'd think; the selection can be overwhelming and looking at a pile of bits and seeing a decent product requires a trained eye (I tried myself at the POD-S3.1 launch and the results were woeful).
When you’re blessed with the vision, though, the result can be wild. Just see these pairs whipped up by customiser Jack the Ripper. The tinkerer came away with a number of heaters during his session, especially the pair he calls the ‘ZX 8000 PB on 4D’. Check it out above and roll through to his Instagram for more of his custom work.
