Back in 2008, Van Monoroe designed a special Nike Air Force 1 Low “Barack Obama” 2008 Custom and now he’s back with his recent 2012 Custom. Featuring Obama’s face along a list of policy accomplishments hitting the back heels. Will Obama serve his second term? Don’t forget to vote as the US Presidential Election is tomorrow.
“The Obama 2012 Sneaker is based on the Presidents accomplishments over his first four years and how I believe he moving the country in the right direction. The stitching illustrates his policies at work, just as the threading keeps the shoe from unraveling, I believe the Presidents agenda for America has saved us from slipping into a great depression. The right shoe carries a hang tag displaying the campaigns slogan “Forward” I accompanied this message with a side view of President Obama. I pay homage to the original Obama 2008 sneaker through the black and white illustrations on both sneakers. Hopefully my audience can appreciate my goal of showing the Presidents achievements and his growth as a leader. With this new sneaker, you also get a glimpse into the degree of my maturation as a designer since the last time I paid homage to Mr Obama.” – Van Monroe
