Twenty-six-year-old Tempe, Arizona resident Randy the Cobbler has made a living out of combining and assembling shoes by hand. His unique creations have amassed great interest and his latest one, the Nike Air Max 1 Moc Hybrid, has already garnered the most attention he’s ever received. He couples the iconic Air Max 1 sole unit with a fringed upper, which might have many calling to mind visvim’s infamous FBT silhouette. Prior to this, Randy had experimented with a Huarache midsole, displaying the one-of-a-kind contraption at this year’s Agenda trade show in New York. Retail for the Air Max 1 Moc Hybrid is set at $300 USD.
