From Iconic Cardboard Kicks to Street Art Shoe Branding

Sneaker art pieces display the charismatic and creative side of sneaker culture. Whether these masterpieces are praising Jordans or Chuck Taylors, these art pieces are incredibly fun to view.

Cardboard sneaker replicas -- such as Michael Leavitt's shoe series as well as Chris Anderson box-like Adidas creations -- offer popular sneaker reiterations that are made entirely out of the recognizable and eco-friendly brown board. Other sneaker sculptures include Tom Yoo's LEGO version of the iconic Air Jordan 1s. These sneaker art pieces also include various sneaker illustrations that are conceived both in colorful and monochromatic palettes.

Konrad Kirpluk's Adidas street art features a vibrant graffiti style while Ghica Popa turns the Nike and New Balance logos into various vehicles in her line of graphic sneaker prints.
