Star Wars Fan Recycles Adidas Sneakers to Create Stormtrooper Helmet

September 23, 2011 / No Comments

You can do many things with a pair of sneakers, especially if it is from Adidas. For example, you can just wear it on your feet like all the rest of the people. But artist Freehand Profit decided to wear it on his head.

Freehand Profit created an incredibly spot-on replica of a Star Wars Stormtrooper headgear out of Adidas sneakers.

He made it out of exclusive Adidas x Star Wars Superskate Mids, and as you can see it looks almost like the real thing.

The impressive piece of art was submitted to the Star Wars Remix Project, which challenges Star Wars fans to create characters or other recognizable elements from the movies using everyday materials.

Making the helmet was not at all an easy task for the artist, and it was created using more than one pair of shoes. And we are pretty sure that he had used Mids that weren’t used.

And just in case you want to try the helmet, you are out of luck. The item recently sold on eBay for $2,125.
