Truck art meets the brand of the century: Pakistani truck artist Haider Ali from Sahiwal has painted Nike trainers, which have become an overnight sensation on the internet and have sent fans into a frenzy.
The pair that comes at a whopping price of 350 USD (61,891.48 Pakistani Rupees) reflects the country’s cultural heritage that the consumers are ready to pay for. In Pakistan, you will find truck art everywhere, such as on public vehicles, khussas, colorful dinnerware, at the chai wallas, and so many more places.
People love it so much that they are suggesting the world’s largest supplier and manufacturer of athletic shoes, Nike, to collaborate with talented artists.

A user who bought the shoes for himself says the price point is “a bargain for the work that’s gone into them.” He added, “It’s a shame that outside of a few tweets and likes, many of us won’t provide actionable support to local artisans and brands.”
Just ordered my pair from Haider Ali!Super excited for him. They’re priced at 350 USD which I think is a bargain for the work that’s gone into them. It’s a shame that outside of a few tweets and likes, many of us won’t provide actionable support to local artisans and brands. https://t.co/BXX0tr6tCE

A user also suggested that the artist should patent his work as soon as possible so others can’t possibly steal his idea.

In June of 2020, Ali made headlines for his stunning mural of George Floyd at the time when there was a Black Lives Matter movement across the globe. It read, “Hum kaaley hain tou kia hua, dil waley hain (So what if we’re dark-skinned? We’ve got big hearts).”
Ali has had a chance to paint about everything from roundabouts, canvas, walls, vehicles to shrines and temples. If you are looking to order the Nike trainers with truck art, you can contact Ali on +923002101329 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
