The Inflated Head of Columbus, Old San Juan, Puerto Rico

The Filiberto Ojeda Uptowns / Machetero Air Force Ones (2007) are a customized pair of Nike sneakers that pay tribute to Fliberto Ojeda, the assassinated leader of the Macheteros - a clandestine group of Puerto Rican nationalists who've campaigned for independence in Puerto Rico since the 1970's. Ojeda was brutally assassinated by the F.B.I. on September 23, 2005.
