Diamond Supply Co.’s design of the Nike SB Dunk Low from the 2005 Team Managers series stands as one of the definitive Nike SB releases in history. It captured the glitz and glamour rarely, if ever seen in the rugged and rebellious sport of skateboarding, and released around a certain period of time in the Nike SB history that some may call the very peak. The ‘Tiffany’ theme has become rather popular with custom sneakers over the years, but very few have been astoundingly crafted like these Air Jordan Vs, done by Proof Culture. Using the 2011 Retro of the Black/Metallic Silver AJV, PC dyed the black upper with the decadent aqua blue painting the tongue and toe bumper along with it. The ‘sharks teeth’ also feature while speckling for that added touch. Along with the custom sneakers is a custom shoe-box, prominently featuring a Jumpman/V/Diamond logo on the outer face. We’ve got a nice, detailed gallery awaiting you below, so take a look and let us know what you think. via MN.
would be better 1) without the diamonds on the toe 2) and a grey tongue, with either black,white, tiffany blue jumpman
i'd be kool without the bedazzling but other than that...these are some of the nicest customs i've ever seen on a 5. JB should take a look at these and look to make them a release.
These are dope. I don't like the crystals and I kind of wish it had just a little wolf grey or something in it but great execution. I guess its always easier to say what you will change then actually being the person who was creative enough to be first with it so much respect.
Don't like the shoe.. colorway is too overused and there's just too much aqua on it.. box is effin awesome though, and yeah good craftsmanship !
Nice colorway but I don't like what has been done to the tounge and the rhinestones are fruity other than that the fact that these were done by hand using a pair of blk/metallic v is pretty cool. One other thing though is if you have these on people would assume you have fakes on though.
minus the rhinestones and give it a M3 tongue like on the Black Metallic 5s theyd be perfect. not hating on them though very good customs. props. box is awesome too
Should have been black dominated with hints of the blue... The tons of blue makes them look like a Prime5 piece of shit.
kinda hard to believe dat those kicks were once da blk metallic joints dat dropped in Aug.... them shit are TOOO DOPE... sign me up fa a custom of those
Omfg!! These are straight fire and with that box!?!? Insane!!! best customs I've seen on here hands down!!
Wow...these things are clean as hell......I would def like to have these in the collection....sheshhh!!!
Just when I think these customs cant get any worse you go and post something like this.....and TOTALLY redeem yourself!
This shit is so corny stop posting this shit. We want news regarding official sneaks not these fake me out type thing I be nobody would wrock them shits in public and think they cool cause everyone would be like they fake.
your ignorance usually wouldn't deserve a response but, I just gotta go in, let me paint a picture for you, you have a car, and you don't want it to look like everybody else's, what do you do.....what for it!!!!!....you customize it whether it be rims, performance, bodykit, or paint, people who actually think outside the box i.e." for themselves" do things out of the ordinary like this, because that's what they are peculiar, but, you wouldn't know anything about that. But, from one custom sneaker artist to another proof customs keep doing your thing. The competition in the custom market the better we all will be
