Sneakers For Breakfast | Helen Kirkum

Footwear artist and design consultant Helen Kirkum created a signature “Kirkum’ed” style concept for the Sneakers For Breakfast event with Takashi Murakami and ComplexCon.

Masterfully piecing together parts of disgarded sneakers and creating a sneaker that embodied Helen’s idea of what a Takashi Murakami sneaker might look like, these sneakers were a perfect mix of Helen’s aesthetic and Takashi’s flair. The disgruntled smiley at the heel being a personal favourite detail of mine 🙁

Below you can see some of the initial design intent and development, as well as a few beauty shots of the final sneaker, which ended raising $2,550.00 at auction (proceeds going to XQ America).
