Following on from his Nike Decade sneaker artworks, illustrator Stephen Cheetham has turned his attention to another important part of any sneaker collection – the sneaker box…
After some initial research and image searching, Cheetham decided upon a collection of boxes from four of the largest sneaker brands – Nike, adidas, Vans and Converse. Each print shows a collection of boxes from the early days of the brand, through to the more modern boxes that are used today – all stacked as they would be in many a sneaker collectors bedroom.
‘For me it’s very interesting to see how a brand has evolved over the years,’ explains Cheetham, ‘and the box is a key indicator of this evolution. The logos, the colours and the box construction all communicate different aspects of the brand. I wanted to show the box as a product in it’s own right, away from the sneakers that it houses.’
All four Sneaker Boxes prints by Stephen Cheetham are available to purchase online (in a variety of sizes) from the excellent Print Process website now

Before east London swapped feet for ‘fixies’ I owned my pride and joy a PK Ripper BMX now I loved it like it part of my own family, to cut a long sad story short it was killed by a Redcar & Cleveland bin wagon damaged beyond repair all the joy and memories gone!! Thanks to Bicycle Taxidermy, you can remember your old friend every time you walk into your house. Bicycle Taxidermy is a plaque and wall mount for your old ride’s handlebars. If you don’t have a broken down bike, you can also purchase a plaque with some other bike front already attached, though that story is a bit less interesting. I recommend using your own, so go out there and shoot your bike. Buy here
Jack Stocker is an illustrator with an interesting take on sneakers. Created as part of his final project for college, this set of six illustrations is a unique interpretation of Nike footwear and more specifically the Nike Air range.
Clean and minimal, the illustrations strip away the detail within the shoes, forcing the viewer to focus on the basic parts of the silhouette and the iconic colors that create it. Jack selected the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Air Max 180, Air Huarache LE, Air Flow and Air Max Light for this project.
Head over to The Daily Street for an exclusive interview with the artist.
As “shaken, not stirred” enthusiasts wait for the 23rd James Bond release, Skyfall, to hit theaters in November, Coca-Cola has unveiled a series of commemorative cans and bottles to mark the occasion. Marked on Coke Zero bottles, the campaign aims to encourage viewers to “Unlock the 007 In you” and discover the secret agents in themselves, “by sipping a diet version of the legendary beverage.” It’s not the first time the brand is supporting films from the Bond franchise – as the partnership between Coca-Cola Zero and James Bond started in 2008 during Quantum of Solace. Expect to see these sleek versions from the storied beverage maker on shelves very shortly
Designer, artist and illustrator Stephen Cheetham worked on a self-initiated project these last weeks. He expressed his love for sneakers, and specifically Nike sneakers, with a new series of prints. The series documents his favorite Nike sneakers from the past four decades. Due to layout and continuity, the designer limited himself to 8 sneakers per decade, which is of course not an easy choice to make. Check out the full interview here
