As the world of sneakers continually evolves and begins to include a larger audience over the last decade, we've also seen a huge rise in sneaker-related art.
Whether it's the work of Dave White, Robb Harskamp or Rhyen Ellis, the genre has progressed and moved through both physical and digital mediums.
Thanks to Joo Jaebum and his video game inspired style, there's a new batch of sneaker art to dive into. Designed by the Seoul-based graphic artist with an 8-bit look, he re-imagined old favorites like the Superstar and Blazer, along with newer hits like the Air Yeezy.
To check out more of Jaebum's great illustrations, which include sneakers as well as portraits, bicycles and many other subjects, be sure to take a look at his portfolio.
