A rising name in the custom sneakers game is ROM, who has dazzled us with his artistic brush strokes on Nike Dunks and a slew of other sneakers. Due to the huge success of his Nike Dunk High Samurai Customs (we showed you those beauties earlier this year), ROM hits us with another Dunk – a treat for the low-top fiends. These hand-painted customs will release for $295, and just 15 pairs will be available, so if you’re looking to add a bit of flavor to your Dunk rotation, hit up the ROM website and lock down your pair. Of course, we’ve got detailed images for you below, so give them a review and let us know if you like the Low or High better.
Cool stuff, I bet you some better pictures would boost your exposure tenfold. Allow me? From a hypebeast point of view : -More contrast or light for black on black areas. My screen might be dark but some of those pics have a visual dead zones. What is that tongue made out of? Can't tell. -Second shot that shows off the details at the heel is pro. Want more of that type of shot. -The original might not be an SB dunk, but slap some SB laces on them anyway and lace em outside-in. People think this is irrelevant nit picking, but if you eliminate that hole after the bottom lace caused by lacing inside-out...the shoe just looks so much better. -Lace them loose and have the laces dangle in the air or close it with a bow. Who cares if you can't walk in them anymore, these are pictures. -Selvedge cuff tops it all off. Hate on me please.
