Fresh! These Adidas Sneakers Were Made Using Orange Peels
We call a lot of sneakers “fresh.” But usually when we say it, we mean that they’re new, they’re different, and they’re sneakers that you absolutely must have in your collection. We don’t mean that they’re literally “fresh,” as in ripe. When we use the term on these Adidas sneakers, though, we really mean it.
Recently, photographer/artist Dan Cretu posted a picture of these kicks up on his DeviantArt profile, where he posts under the name dancretul. And they are, well, different. He got an Adidas sneaker and covered the outside of it in orange peels to make one of the coolest and most unique sneakers we’ve ever seen. Cretu has also photographed an orange bicycle (also made using oranges) as well as a bunch of other ordinary items made using unordinary objects.
We’d never actually rock this shoe, especially since it appears that it was worn on more than one occasion—actually, on many occasions—but it’s kind of cool to see how Dan used the silhouette of a sneaker and turned it into a piece of art. Now, which sneakerheads out there want to hang up a print of this in their living room? Come on, don’t be shy!
