I read in an article about Shin Tanaka that he started creating paper models and templates for all his favorite sneakers he couldn’t afford when he was a student…
We seem to like the same sneakers!
One of my favorite Nike is create in paper by Shin: the Nike Air Force 1 is created by Shin in paper and can be found on the internet:
NIKE AIR FORCE 1 paper model and LMAC BABESTAS
download the Nike Air Force One (.PDF) here.
Shin has even had an exhibition with these sneakers:
Shin also worked together with Onitsuka Tiger and created a template for
Onitsuka Tiger – Mexico66.
You can create your own Mexico66: just download the blank version here: Onitsuka Tiger – Mexico66 (.PDF).
This project has it’s own Flash site: http://shin.onitsukatiger.co.uk/.
And you can send in your customs on the same site.
