Sneaker News profiled customizer Ecentrik’s ‘Tropical Sunset’ Air Force 1 Low customs during the peak of summer, and though it’s a different model entirely, the one pictured above is indeed closely related to another custom AF1 from the same artist. It was about eighteen months earlier that Ecentrik made a simple white/blue Uptown into a replica of the legendary ‘Playstation’ AF1, and it was with that base of gradient application that he reached out for this colorway appropriation. The Nike Air Max 90 ‘Appetite for Destruction’ custom takes its look and feel from March 2008’s Dunk Low Pro SB by that same name, its color scheme borrowed from Guns and Roses’ 1987 opus. This custom job is on point, even amplifying the GnR Dunk Low’s colorful accents thanks to the AM90s lines providing a sizeable yet segregated section of black right through the middle. Click through to see more angles and let us know how these compare to the other color-swap customs we’ve seen in recent months.
