Zhijun Wang Tore Apart a Pair of YEEZYs and Made Them into a Face Mask

Zhijun Wang, a Chinese designer who's based out of Beijing, creates unique projects using popular sneaker models, with her most recent being a face mask that's made from YEEZY Boost 350 V2s.

Taking the lightweight gray and orange material that the popular Kanye West sneakers are built from, Zhijun Wang carefully tears it open so that it's no longer connected to the sole.

Previously, Zhijun Wang completed a similar project that was done with a pair of Air Max 90s, as well as another made from some bright blue adidas sneakers. As the city that Zhijun Wang calls home is reportedly facing a "crippling pollution problem," its inhabitants are encouraged to wear masks to protect themselves -- which her designs were made in mind of.
