Jordan 1 “Aqua Tone” sneaker with pink laces attached to yellow

“Within this collection, I present a metaphor about perseverance, represented by a
sneaker attached to a piece of chewing gum that he found in the path of his walk.
The work is presented in a fresh and cheerful way as a reminder that we must
continue forward on our path, despite the adversities represented in The Gum.”
