When asked about his choice in shoe, the Nike Air Force 1, he answered:
"The outsole was one of the main reasons as it has such a flat sole to sink the speaker cone level against. The fact that the Air Force 1 is probably one of the worlds most recognisable and iconic sneakers was a plus."
Iconic. Careful craftsmanship. And hopefully the sound isn't bad either (there's a tweeter crammed in there somehow). We feel this project is a huge success! Now, if we can possibly get one send to our Unplggd offices...Be sure to check out the photographic walkthrough of their DIY building process over at Art & Sole.
