Canyaon, a 22-year-old Russian designer known for his out-of-the-box designs such as Nike Air Hookahs and custom boots from Reebok hockey gloves, is back with another creation giving the retro Nike M2K Tekno silhouette a freaky hairstyle. Taking inspiration from designers he saw online such as Nicole McLaughlin who took upcycling projects to another level, Canyaon, who’s trained as an electrician, was encouraged to try his hand at his own footwear concepts.
The customs are reminiscent of Cactus Plant Flea Market‘s Nike Flea 1 “Overgrown” with its furry design with many in the comments pointing out the pairs look a lot like Lil Uzi Vert‘s recent hairstyle at Rolling Loud. Keeping the wavy two-tone sole units untouched, the uppers feature yarn strands which have been style upwards to form liberty spikes. As with most of Canyaon’s creations, the pairs are wearable, but remain conceptual.
Take a closer look at Canyaon’s latest Nike M2K Tekno “Hairstyle” customs below.
