Ahead of all Nike Sportswear releases set upon UK's The Chimp Store, the boutique thought of a novel and clever method to preview the upcoming collection. With help from Leeds-base artist Josh Parkin, who forgo the usual photography in this preview lookbook and instead utilized his quirky illustrations in place of photos. Depictions ranging an iceberg full of penguins to car wash and the iconic movie poster of Jaws, each carries a likeness to Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Roshe, with a bit emotional context, humor and fun all rolled into one. But the most poignant sketch is one with Air Max 90 as a church's stained glass window, in reference of sneakers as a religion to some. In the meantime, expect to see real life versions of these Nike kicks in stores during the coming weeks, including The Chimps Store in Leeds.
