Nike is celebrating the recent opening of skateboarder Lance Armstrong and artist Geoff McFetridge's skatebale art exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles by creating the Nike SB Paper Dunk High.

The exhibit itself is wonderfully colorful and is 100 percent skateable with Nike SB team riders performing weekly skate sessions during the exhibitions entire run. The Nike SB Paper Dunk High is designed after one of Geoff McFetridge's exhibit pieces and is limited to 24 pairs. The shoe is cream-colored all around with fearsome black stripes (think tribal armband-style) running from the toebox to the tongue and all around the side and upper panels. The shoes are set to be auctioned off with a starting price of $100. All proceeds go towards the MOCA Foundation. Stats for Artsy Skate Shoes Trending: Older & Chilly
