Graphic artist Jeff Cole is combining the mania for Marvel movies with the hype for new sneakers to create truly unique superhero/sneaker mashups that he posts on Instagram
"Being big into the sneaker culture, I saw a huge opening in providing unique content and value to a community that was dying for something different," Cole told Maxim via email.
He's garnered more than 350,000 Instagram followers with sneakerized depictions of Venom, Deadpool, Spider-Man, Yoda and even Kanye West.
But it is his Marvel creations that have earned him the most buzz. Cole even worked directly with Marvel for his Adidas-style take on Black Panther.
"My favorite by far was the Black Panther x Adidas Futurecraft 4D," he said.
"Working with Marvel for that historic movie launch and being featured as an official partner in the release was really special."
"I am focusing a lot on Marvel right now," Cole added. "They got a lot of buzz and the range in which I can create into is vast."
