When we discovered his Instagram account, we were impressed. The graffiti by jnorrisart is great, but the Amazing Nike Soleswaps by jnorrisart and hybrids immediately caught our full attention. All of his sneaker projects are about the Swoosh, most of them include the uppers of more or less classic Nike sneakers and the mid- and outsoles of Nike retros. His technique is brilliant: He cuts off the uppers from the original soles and puts them on other soles. The result is a completely new aesthetic, but somehow it never looks “wrong” – everything matches.
It’s always nice to see creative people and great craftmanship combined – we can’t wait to see more of these amazing Nike hybrid projects – it’s a nice way to upcycle (vintage) sneakers with crumbled or walked off soles but still wearable uppers! Check out our gallery below and all of his art and sneaker projects in his instagram feed!
