The shoe is stitched together with multiple pieces of latex rubber cast out of moulds made from my own skin. If this is true, this man must look like a walking mound of bacon.

How long will it be before Nike's lawyers issue a cease-and-desist letter (or letters)?

I wish he would've named it something cool, in the tradition of Nike. Like, Nike Hair? Nike Freek? Nike Shoxthehelloutofme?

Air Jame Gumbs. By the way, you guys make it sound like you never made clothing from your own skin.

Looks like something out of a David Cronenberg film.

I've given myself some time to think about it and I've decided I could have done without that last photo and those squiggles of hair growing out of the shoe.

Air Lecter. Since the killer in "Silence of the Lambs" was Buffalo Bill, maybe this could be the Bills' new team shoe.

A tale of five 20-somethings whose freespirited roadtrip becomes a terrifying descent into madness. When they find themselves isolated in a rural Texas community, they fall into the clutches of .........the newest nike product?

I am pretty certain that American copyright law allows for artistic expression that acts as criticism as falling under fair use. psmealey: yeah, I was thinking of eXistenZ the whole time, or perhaps of the Australian artist Stelarc.

yummy shoes?

That's a great idea. After you log a couple miles, you can fire up the grill, grab a couple cold ones and just kick back and munch out. Instead of BBQ sauce, how about a little toe-jam for flavor? MMMMM! Just like mom used to make.
