Sole Survivors: Eight Worst Fonts — on Shoes

FastCoDesign‘s list of the eight worst fonts in the world inspired artist Kyle Fletcher to “liberate them from that infinite criticism.” Using eight pairs of Nike Air Max 1s as canvases, Fletcher treats the fonts in a manner not unlike “rescuing a stray cat from an alley.” Regardless of whether you agree with the list, it’s nice to see Comic Sans getting a breather for once.
