Sneakerhead Treatment for Boba Fett

Freehand Profit, an artist/illustrator/designer based in Los Angeles, used two Nike "Boba Fett" shoes to make a very creative Boba Fett helmet.

Excerpt from the announcement:

I had given up finding pairs of the 'Boba Fett' Nike SB Dunk HIs from 2008- it seemed like no one was selling them. I assumed no one in their right mind would give up such a great piece of SB Gold... then a pair appeared... and at a price I didn't even flinch at. I realized with all the hype and the market flooded with newbies after 'nothing but HEAT', some folks gave up selling shoes that weren't South Beach Lebrons, Tiffany SBs or Jordan Retros. I was lucky and ecstatic to find 4 pairs from great folks all across the country - some by trade some by cold cash money. I set 2 aside for the mask, and a wishful thinking 2 for me. Anytime I start a big project like the Stormtrooper or Boba Fett helmets I know I'll need more material than a "standard" sneaker gas mask. I aim to do each piece with as few pairs as possible to avoid waste, for the Boba Fett helmet it could've been done with just 2 pairs. I saw more potential in sacrificing a 3rd pair for the sake of certain design elements in the finished piece. Very happy with the results, and just as happy with a single pair in my rotation.

The artwork is for sale.
