According to Tetsu Nishiyama of WTAPS, an original work of art modified at least 40% is no longer its rights. Since 1993, the Japanese designer has been making products using this notion through the aptly named FORTY PERCENT AGAINST RIGHTS (FPAR) brand. Before the end of the year, the provocative label flexed its creative muscles on a gray-hued Nike SB Blazer Low.
While not his first collaboration with Nike SB, the latest venture from FPAR’s Swoosh brand offers a more tame proposition than the October 2019 Air Jordan 6-inspired Nike Dunk. quality covers most of the pair’s upper, with interruptions arriving at the lateral forefoot and treads. ‘Cool Gray’ and ‘Wolf Gray’ tones divide the low top sneaker, though the sidewall panels introduce eye-catching patterns and textures. The Japanese brand’s abbreviation is embroidered on the heel of the left shoe, while the lace dubras on the same shoe also feature the four-letter diminutive. The right shoes feature a complementary branding, which includes a “nike sb” logo that contrasts with the reverse label that appears on top of the tongue of the left shoe. Finally, skate-ready soles underfoot complete the grayscale arrangement with dark makeup.
Enjoy the official images of the pair below and look forward to an overseas launch of Nike SNKRS on December 20; a release in the United States may follow, but this is highly unlikely.
For proposals other than the skateboarding of the NIKE, Inc. empire, check out the Air Jordan 3.
