Nike 6.0 has collaborated with prolific street artist Mark Paul Deren (a.k.a. Madsteez) and artist brand Poketo to create a new limited edition shoe, for both men and women from the Nike 6.0 Braata line called the StinkWeen Braata.
California-based Madsteez mentored emerging artist Evan “Stink” Rossell on the project. In a series of all-night, art-fueled brainstorming sessions, they created the character “StinkWeen”, a fusion of Madsteezs scrappy cartoon self-portrait “Weeneze” and a mischievous alter-ego doodle by Stink. “StinkWeen represents both me and Stink, much like a Dr. Jeckel and Mr. Hyde relationship,” says Deren.
There is a lot of info about the Stinkween Braatam, as well as plenty of pictures of the sneakers so if your interested please continue reading after the jump. We dont wanna fill up the main page with all the details about this release.
Extremely limited quantities of the StinkWeen Braata will come with a very special Poketo x Nike 6.0 “Madsteez Braata Wallet” made exclusively for the shoe. Poketo, an art driven brand that has collaborated with premier artists around the world has joined with Madsteez to design this wallet featuring madcap illustrations of his StinkWeen character.
Channeling the Madsteez/Stink split personality, the artists made their shoe in two different colors. The men’s version in green and the women’s version in purple. Signature StinkWeen artwork graces the sole and insole.
This visually groundbreaking shoe fluidly combines art with unparalleled structure. It’s vibrant colors and subtle glowing features, built with Nike Free technology provides a fresh new look at this design which follows the foot’s natural movements and provides unprecedented board-feel that’s tempered with support in all the right places. The Braata’s cold-wrap construction process reduces environmental impact and allows the insertion of a cushioned midsole, differentiating it from traditional vulcanized shoes.
The Nike 6.0 StinkWeen Braata and Poketo wallet drops July 24th at select retailers including Jacks Surfboards at Huntington Beach, and the Nike 6.0 Motel NoTell in San Clemente, CA.
