Foot Locker Art Prize Contest Winner

Foot Locker is no stranger to sneaker-centric competitions, having just this year created a 3-point shootout online game and run a March Madness contest, but their latest was by far the most intensive. The Foot Locker Art Prize was dubbed 'The World's Richest Colouring Competition' thanks to the $50,001 grand prize afforded to 24 year old Brisbane, Austrailia native Kalin Thompson on the strength of his 'Forbidden Fruit' work. The insane Thompson design was hailed by noted customizer and artist Dave White as "A complete knockout," and it earned him the cash prize along with a 1 of 1 Air Force 1 based on his work as designed by Sekure D. via Sneaker News
