This Is How Nike Sneakers Inspired By Classic Album Covers Could Look

Sneakers are nice and all, but they tend to work on one design level: if they look nice, they kinda just... look nice. But what if they were inspired by classic album covers?

Copenhagen-based designer Patso Dimitrov has re-imagined a series of Nike sneakers with design cues taken from a series of album covers. The result are varied: some are fairly subtle, others a bit more in-your-face. We've picked out a few of our favourites here: above is Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon on a pair of KD8; below is Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures on a pair of Lebron 12 Lows; and at the bottom is A Tribe Called Quest's Low End Theory on some Kyrie 1s. You can see the full set over on Dimitrov's Behance page. Would you wear them if Nike rolled a pair into production?
