Ever wonder why the Air Jordan VI seems to be the most frequent Jumpman silhouette selected for these types of custom creations? The recent retro of the white/varsity red colorway made its way to the outlets in fairly big numbers, letting heads like El Cappy pick them up as canvases at discount prices. The resulting wave has seen a ton of well-known combos ported over onto the Air Jordan VI, the latest of which continues the LeBron-centric trend by grabbing the ‘Cannon’ colorway of the Nike LeBron 9. The result stays pretty true to its muse, giving the high energy look a glossier feel thanks to the straightforward leather upper in comparison to LeBron’s teched out sig. Follow us after the jump for the full look at the Air Jordan VI ‘Cannon’ customs from El Cappy and let us know what you think in the comments below.
IS THERE SOMEONE WHO CAN STOP EL CAPPY? ... there is people who cant buy J VI and this guy continues to destroy them. Nike, thank you to stopping to sell him jordan...
Yall remember when 'Puff Diddy' did a couple of good remix of a classic songs, then he over did it with a bunch of whack remixes. Kinda like a junkie chasing the high he got from the first of doing Heroine.... El cappy is the offspring if P.Diddy if Diddy ducked a homeless junkie.
Not feeling these at all. My fav were the Freddy Kruegers. Those were SICK! Back to the drawing board El.
How about mixing your own colors and do something fresh and new and, stop redoing what has already been done. Put your grey matter to good use and actually be creative in the process by doing something Jordan brand would see and possibly... maybe... might even give you the respect of cloning your idea. Just a thought
I respect the time and effort put in, but Cappy needs to try something original rather than using an existing CW from JB.
Customs: Nice to look out but would never wear...Nice work either way. My advice to customizers, go work at Jordan and teach them new colorways cause they're fucking idiots 90% of the time
