Sneakerheads, prepare to meet your new artistic crush.

UK artist Phil Robson (aka Filfury) has created a superb set of artwork drawing inspiration from classic trainer lines and sneaker silhouettes. Timeless footwear from the Air Jordan 4 Retro to the Adidas Originals Superstar have been split, blended and mashed to create skulls, insects and all manner of awesome shoe taxidermy.

You can purchase a print of Robson's work from Mrs Fury. That, or you can take a Stanley knife to your own hightops.
