Nike iD x Pendleton

NIKEiD & Pendleton

In their quest to make everyone a sneaker artist/designer, Nike have certainly been pushing the boundaries lately in terms of what can be achieved using the one-of-a-kind potential of NIKEiD. Demonstrating this perfectly is this latest addition to the customisable service; a collaboration with clothing manufacturer Pendleton Woolen Mills.
There are four silhouettes available for customisation, the Air Force 1, Blazer, SB Janoski and that artist/designer favourite, the Roshe Run (shown above). Each features four variable Pendleton wool patterns, with eight suede accent colours. Additional options include a nubuck midsole for the Air Force 1, wool or classic white nylon tongue for the Blazer, leather or cotton laces for the SB Janoski and, to increase the limited edition potential of the Roshe Run, a choice of two different blocking styles.

Incredible Lead Pencil Sculptures

Since a young age, São Paulo-born artist Dalton Ghetti had a knack for tools. For his 9th Birthday, Ghetti received a set of metal tools for children. This is what he believes began his love of carving and hobby for carpentry. At 24, he moved to the USA where he earned an associate of arts degree in architecture, while working as a cabinet maker.
upon graduation he became employed as a home remodeller, a job which he continues doing today.
During his spare time, Ghetti enjoys carving small intricate objects our for lead pencils. His technique requires him to hold the pencil in his hand under a strong light source, carving with either a sewing needle or sharp triangular metal blade, gradually removing specks of graphite at a time. This process usually sees Ghetti working for one or two hour intervals at a time,
which results in the pieces taking months, or sometimes years to complete.
