Behind the Salt Stains

Anthony Hart doesn't just design a shoe, he creates a full experience. Don't believe us? Just look at the concrete slab behind him. He made that too.  Photo: Dan Huseby.

Anthony Hart has great ideas, but what sets him apart from the rest is his ability to bring his ideas to life. Whether its skating really expensive shoes or getting his favorite skaters hyped (see below), he never fails to disappoint when he's involved in a creative project.

Anthony's latest idea was to create a shoe that looked as if had spent the winter outside, weathered by the sidewalk salt and seasonal abuse us Minnesotans are are all too familiar with. Out of this idea came a Nike SB 'Salt Stains' Dunk, a shoe that was officially released on December 1st.

An art show was held at Familia HQ in Minneapolis in celebration of the shoes release  We at Village Psychic were beyond stoked to contribute an animation to the show, check out a condensed version below:

 

To top it all off, Anthony teamed up with skate filmer extrordinaire Benji Meyer to produce a wear test for the show. In true A Hart fashion, the video was anything but conventional.

 

Go pimp the shoes at your local skateshop, read what Anthony had to say about the shoe in this conversation with Complex, and see more of Anthony's work at his portfolio site.
