Over the years, SBTG has truly become a force to recon with in the world of custom sneakers; both in terms of quality/creativity as well as market share. The success and popularity of the recent Dead Generals Dunks and the demand that has been growing for SBTG’s one-of-a-kind custom kicks has prompted him to put together a broader selection of designs and quantities for this Spring’s collection. Two themes that should be familiar to SBTG fans will be available in a more D.I.Y. context.
The first series of note available from the deft hands of SBTG is the SAWTOOTH Dunk Series, which draws a design cue from the SBTG x Phu “Death From Above” collaboration that come out back in 2008. Sticking with his fondness of military themes, the SAWTOOTH series of Dunk Lows features the type of shark teeh design that you may recognize from American war planes during WWII. Along with the shark teeth comes an Acid Pop twist with metallic accents, bright colors and leopord-like animal prints. These SAWTOOTH Dunks will be available in four schemes; Instinct, Bloodspot / Sable, Royal / Mono, Venom & Teal and straight up Venom. The availability of these will be a little more open-ended than typical SBTG releases, and with a price tag of $450.00.
Also available will be a monotone twist to the SBTG x Lazy Paramount Dunk, titled “White Noise”. This Dunk Low is adorned with premium Gucci selvage denim along with a black and white Palestinian Shemagh and a reptile-textured Swoosh. Both the SAWTOOTH and White Noise Dunk Lows are available on a made-to-order basis, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble getting your hands on a pair.
This time around, SBTG will be mixing up his selection with some 1 of 1s in the form of four Air Max 90s. Dubbed the “Shark Attack Air Max 90,” all four pairs feature similar designs to the SAWTOOTH Dunk Lows utilizing a teeth design, animal print and vivid colors. These will NOT be available on a made to order basis, so grab them while you can because once they are gone, they are gone.
This myriad of great designs fresh off the desk of SBTG are available now on RoyalFam’s Website, and be sure to peep all the rest of the designs after the jump.
