i am a HUGEfan of nike and i own 27 pairs…lol

Nice. i like the blue top one
It is not that amazing if you had to glue them, yet, looks good, lily… i mean… 27 pairs? LOL.
Fashion, not function.
Still interesting however.
Nice! even though it is not functional, is it?

woah, these are awesome!
not so good in rain :S
he make’s them better than the children they have employed in the sweat-shops in Malaysia!
NOW, if the real ones were only the same price as the paper ones. The paper ones sure are as cute!
That is caraaaazy cool

Handmade Art is coming back. And I love it!
Cool as hell, but WHY?
I agree, very cool. This guy obviously uses his creativity in his free time. Make this into a shoe skin that can be used to update the look of an old pair of comfy sneaks and you might have something…
Ugh. Anyone can do that. That difference is that everyone else would rather spend their time doing something more useful and/or interesting.
They’re ok, but you can tell he didn’t take all the time he could have. They’re a bit raggedy in places…
Probably being picky, but from one designer to another – must try harder!

cool shoes, I wonder though if nike is going to come after him for using the swoosh
Nov 18th, 2009
how long did it take him to make those shoes?
They look like lofurs a bit… was there no way to curve the front so they didn’t look like sailor shoes?
Nike Air Navy, they’re still awesome though!

After reading all of these comments, people have very different opinions. I mean, having 27 pairs of nikes wouldn’t be my choice, but, its obviously lily’s choice. I personally have never had a pair of Nike. I think that this is a very cool thing. Someone spent there time on this and that’s interesting to me. art work is art work. (:

Nike should sue the quality is nowhere near the real thing. Try wearing those in the rain
That would work if they were made in the US but he lives in Bristol.

Shin Tanaka killed this thing long ago. Nothing new here.

Go to any large Chinatown and look for a store that sells paper goods made to be burned for the dead. They have fabulous sneakers, high heels, shirts, dresses that are far more polished than these. You can also get paper constructs of television sets, cellular phones, cookware, electric fans, even a complete house with servants.
