Gabriel Disha‘s electronic scrap-metal sneaker sculptures exist in a Bermuda triangle of sneaker art, somewhere between old-school brass diver boots, LA Lights, and highest-tensile Flyknits.
Disha is a junk artist whose imagination can take your old Mac Classic II and turn in into a pair of Air Max 90s. Our favorite is the pair of Nike Frees he meticulously recreated in metal, right down to the mesh and overlay on the upper, and the sole’s pods (which are comprised of old touchtone phone digits.) Other works include Jordans, Nike ACGs, and Dunks, but the Frees impressed us the most. Hopefully he takes requests, because we have a few profiles we’d like to see rendered in metal.
