Classic Sneaker Silhouettes Were Used to Recreate Gun Designs

Nike's classic sneaker designs are recognized in many parts of the world. Graphic designer Phil Robson a.k.a Fil Fury used several iconic sneaker designs to create these rubber-made guns.

The Australian-based digital artist used the silhouettes of Nike Air Max 90 and Nike Air Max BW to form these Nike-inspired guns. Titled the 'Nike Air Max Assault Weapon,' the series is composed of several guns that were recreated from the details of the classic sneaker designs. The silhouettes were used as blueprints of the guns. Various types of Beretta pistols and Uzis are the result from those compositions -- it should also be noted that none of the guns fire bullets.

It's interesting to see how deep a brand product can influence people, in terms of art and design.
