Tapestry At It’s Finest: Jordan 5 “Got Grapes?”

18 12 2009

Sneakers have to be my biggest vice. If I ever have money to spare it’s a must that I get a new pair of kicks. When I stumbled across Emma Sulzer I have to admit that my jaw literally dropped. Putting 40 hours of time into creating each shoe, you can imagine that these have to be the  rarest pair of Air Jordan 5 “Grapes” on the planet. These joints are so detailed that even Tinker Hatfield would be impressed!

“Tapestry is traditionally seen as a women’s craft medium. I wanted to apply tapestry to a contemporary subject to elevate the art form and to make tapestry appealing to a young audience.” -Emma Sulzer

The dope part about this work of art is that Emma doesn’t limit her skill to just Jordan 5’s. She has also assembled a pair of New Balance Skippy’s as well as some classic olive Puma’s. The only let down is that these sneakers aren’t wearable but never the less these would be really cool to own and show off to your friends. From the jumpman on the tongue to the see through ice bottoms, we all can agree that these joints are flawless!
