This pair of sparkling white shoes are the latest canvas for Pakistani truck artist Haider Ali, who uses vibrant colors to celebrate Pakistani culture.
Ali, a seasoned truck artist, has now reimagined the artwork as footwear
Known as “truck art,” the colorful murals atop Pakistani lorries portray South Asian animals, celebrities, and religious figures from various religions.
Ali, a seasoned truck artist, has now reimagined the artwork as footwear. According to him, he received a request to paint shoes from a client in the United States. To discourage him, I offered an absurd price, but he accepted, so I went ahead and did it.
After spending up to four days making each pair, he charges select clients $400 for a bespoke pair of shoes.
Eight pairs of painted trainers have been shipped out since he began painting them in January, with new orders arriving every four days following a spike in interest on the social media platform.
