Tinker Hatfield designed the Air Jordan VI, but has anyone given this two-decade veteran more time and attention in recent months as the customizer known as El Cappy? Eric Lowry just showed us his latest design earlier this week, a Freddy Krueger-inspired Six that’s just the latest in a long line of custom jobs he’s applied to this handiwork-friendly silhouette. The latest is somewhat similar to a theme we saw Lowry employ about two months ago, but instead of the all-over Elephant print on his ‘Cement’ customs, this Air Jordan III-inspired design sees the Three’s signature element restricted to the AJVI’s unmistakably angular midsole tooling. He also crafted the eyelets to resemble the III’s reinforcements, and with black/cement Elephant print G-Shock alongside, could this custom package rival some of Jordan Brand’s top-tier output? And while the most obvious question would be whether these best IVII’s similar effort, but might they also be the best custom AJ6s we’ve ever seen?
