Format Wallpaper ReUp

Format Magazine recently released a wave of over 70 fresh wallpapers celebrating its 40th issue. Many are recycled covers from past issues but our favorites transform sneakers from commodity to an artistic medium.

For example, "SNKR City" plays off of Frank Miller's graphic novel/superhero aesthetic, placing an eye-catching pair of Nikes into a noir setting. We also like how the 40th Anniversary issue cover, "JB Classics," references the beloved short French film, "Le Ballon Rouge." A different take, "Brook Olivares" keeps with Format's interest in urban art but deviates a bit in that it provides a more impressionistic image.

There's plenty of variety and even if you're not a sneaker head there's a lot to choose from, so have a look at Format Magazine.
