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

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.
Designer and illustrator Nick Agin worked on a personal project, exploring the iconic Star Wars film characters. The outcome is a great series of illustrations, inspired by the style that old American presidents were drawn in. Included in the line-up are of course Vader, Yoda, 3-CPO and the Stormtrooper next to a few others.
