Colorway ‘sampling’ is undoubtedly the biggest trend in custom sneakers these days, and those at the head of the class have progressed all the way to imitating complex designs like the ‘Nerf’ Zoom KD IV and Kobe VII ‘Leopard’.  The latest pair is arguably the most complex yet, because not only is it incredibly demanding to replicate an innovative artist’s unique handcrafted style, but also perhaps equally as difficult to blend that application seamlessly with another model’s inextricable signature elements.  That’s what make’s Mache‘s Air Jordan III ’Dave White’ customs so impressive, and this new arrangement of the familiar Chicago Bulls colors proves this quarter-century veteran still can still shock us after all these years.  Click through for more angles and let us know if these are the best color-swap customs we’ve seen here on Sneaker News.

Its interesting that people make customs, b/c if you actually wore them in the general public people would consider them fakes. Its also cool to see how much work these guys put into their customs man. I just don have enuff time in the day. Kudo's guys i respect the custom game, but just as art not as a wearable option.

i dunno. to me it looks sloppy the stars are dumb crooked and off compared to the OG. the fades is done real cheap compared to the stripe fades the Dave Whites got. I think this dude rushed to get these on the blogs and do some sneakerhead "FIRST" BS. so his last 10 kicks have been nothin but copies of shoes Nike does onto other shoes. and then he on twitter claiming people copying him? How u copy a shoe and then get on people for copyin the same shoe, but claim they copy YOU?

Read my Friend. Keyword "Customs"

You could just tell these are customs though because of how crazy they are, rather than a South Beach colorway or something like that. Otherwise I completely agree about customs in public looking like fakes. The point is that the dude who customized them and is rocking them knows they are what they are, and that's what makes them unique. These will turn heads no matter what.

This is why I generally never comment on stuff like this. I'll address this once and once only....a twitter follower brought it to my attention that someone decided to capitalize on the attention I received on the nerfs. I made a comment that the ones up on ebay weren't mine and people ran with it. I'm the first to say that the nerfs weren't original, but I made them for myself, and people really liked them, and wanted them, so I capitalized. Since then I have been contacted by both Jason Petrie and Kyle Yamaguchi (if you don't know who they are they designed the LBJ9s and KD4s respectfully) both told me I did a great job on them. Same deal with the Dave Whites, I love Dave White, love the 1's, I hope to get a pair....but I probably won't be able to get them, so I made the 3's....and today Dave White contacted me and gave me his blessing. (feel free to check the twitter account if you don't believe me) All I'm saying is check ALL of my catalog, I've been making customs since 04.....I'm more than color flips, but unfortunately only color flips get the public's attention. Everyone pays attention to whats familiar, whether it's good or not....it's just fact, and you know that.. (Gets off his soapbox and walks away.)

You can say 3 different colors on the elephant print, the Red fades to White... I kinda like these. Not bad at all.

Sorry I really wasn't reading. For some reason I thought these were the Dave Whites coming out on the 11th. My brain is fried.

you gotta add a "bitch!" at the end, to put more emphasis on your point.
