Artist and fashion designer, Josiah Chua has taken it one step further to create custom BTS Meal sneakers.
Within 1 day of the BTS Meal’s launch, Josiah got his creative juices flowing and released his design of the custom sneakers on his Instagram, with photos shot by @jaydenation.
You’ve heard of upcycling old fashion pieces, but the local artist has taken it to another level with his BTS Meal sneakers. What’s even more impressive is that it seems like almost all the packaging items in the meal, from the cup to the sauces, have been incorporated.
Josiah made use of the BTS meal drink cup to create a unique half high-cut, half low-cut silhouette on the sneakers.
There’s even a special pocket on the side of the shoe created from the 9-piece nugget box, conveniently placed to store chicken nuggets on the go.
The Sweet Chili Sauce and Cajun Sauce boxes are incorporated as lace charms on the kicks. If you look closely, these boxes aren’t simply pasted on. Josiah actually cut holes in them to thread the laces through, so you never need to worry about them falling off.
Honestly, these BTS Meal sneakers, if made commercially available, might blow the existing BTS x McDonald’s merch collections out of the water.
These Custom BTS Meal Sneakers Will Make You Want To DIY Your Own With Nugget & Sauce Boxes.
With the release of the BTS Meal, Bangtan fever is stronger than ever. Fingers crossed that Josiah will be taking orders for custom BTS Meal sneakers sometime soon. Although, ARMYs probably won’t wear them out because they’re simply “2 Cool 4 Skool”, or anywhere for that matter.
