Lightweight Performance meets Madcap Illustration

Welcome to a world of vibrant color and madcap illustration, where shoe soles double as art canvases and seemingly subtle details glow electric-green in the dark Meet Madsteez. For our latest shoe collaboration, Nike 6.0 joined forces with prolific street artist Mark Paul Deren (a.k.a. Madsteez) to create something fresh and visually groundbreaking.

In keeping with the welcome-all energy propelling Nike 6.0, the California-based Madsteez mentored up and coming artist Evan Stink Rossell on the project. In a series of all-night, art-fueled brainstorming sessions, they created the character StinkWeena fusion of Madsteezs scrappy cartoon self-portrait Weeneze and a mischievous alter-ego doodle by Stink. StinkWeen represents both me and Stink, much like a Dr. Jeckel and Mr. Hyde relationship, says Deren.

Brand new to the 6.0 line, the Braata translates this wonderfully weird vision with easy-wearing innovation. Built with Nike Free technology, the Braatas uber-flex allows the foot to follow its natural movements and provides unprecedented board-feel thats tempered with support in all the right places. The Braatas cold-wrap construction process reduces environmental impact and also allows the insert of a cushioned midsole, differentiating it from traditional vulcanized shoes.

Channeling the Madsteez/Stink split personality, the artists made their shoe in two different colorswashing the mens version in a cool minty green and drenching the womens in delicious grapey purple. Signature StinkWeen artwork graces the sole and insole.

Making a Nike shoe has been a dream of mine since I was young little Ween, says Deren. I couldnt be more pleased with how the shoe came out, and Im insanely proud that the StinkWeen is one part Stink, one part Madsteez, and one part Nike 6.0.
