Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen loves sneakers, and now, in collaboration with Vancouver’s Six Hundred Fourshoe company, he has hand-painted 30 pairs.
Dubbed the Electric Splatter collection, the design was inspired by the classic style of Jackson Pollock's drip paintings, which Collen has also applied to his line of Jackson Splatter Guitars.
Collen says, “I would have never thought that in less than 24 hours after walking into the Six Hundred Four store in Vancouver that I'd be splashing paint on a pair of really cool sneakers... Creating live art on a pair of sneakers turned out to be an explosive and exciting combination.”
Each shoe is numbered and signed by Collen in his classic Japanese script, and they come in a matching box also adorned with his artwork.
