I love art sneakers, and 'Nike Fantasy' by Ricardo Diogo is a particularly compelling pair of shoes. While the imagery is dark, even a bit apocalyptic, it's beautifully done. Parachuting teddy bears, gas mask-wearing aliens, military helicopters and an insanely detailed wide-open eye are just a few of the images featured in these kicks.

Implications - As sneaker culture and the underground streetwear community continues to expand, so does the interest in different and wacky clothing or products. Products that serve as a social commentary on pop culture, politics or the environment gain additional importance in a world where standing out is the name of the game. The addition of a celebrity designer adds interest and points to the consumer who wants to show their artistic loyalty.
