Amongst all the other political merchandising, the Obama Air Force 1 sneakers are certainly unusual. The image of Obama is on the right sole. On the left is another image with the words “ A black Man runs and a nation is behind him.”
Jim Lasser engraved the soles of a pair of Air Force 1 High sneakers for his art exhibition entitles “The Dunk on McCain” at Tyson Space. Prints from the soles will be sold along with the shoes. The artist is an art director and copywriter at Wieden+Kennedy Studio in Portland.
