The Air Jordan III ‘Pit Crew’ and ‘Oregon’ PEs were one of the surprise hits of 2011, falling into the hands of some lucky students, determined sneakerheads, and friends and family of the Oregon and Nike family. Mache Customs recently completed his own rendition of the Air Jordan III ‘Pit Crew’ by employing a more contemporary UofO colorway by infusing the electric Volt tone on the Jumpman logos on the tongue and heel as well as on the elephant print. Mache also adds some Oregon branding, opting for the ‘O’ on the right shoe and a painted-on footprints on the left. We’ve got additional images for you below so take a look and let us know what you think of Mache’s latest custom!
make da elephant print cement & take da Oregon O off, & u got potential... overall, these are aiiiiight. But no other pit crew can say they have they own Js. Dam u Oregon U bein 2 hrs ago frum Nike Hdqrtrs
I think it would look better if the midsole was black and if the O and the Duck feet symbols were stitched on opposed to painting it.
I have a question Mache: Is it legal to use logos on customs? Because I wanted to do the same thing on my pair of Air Force Ones. Thanks.
On the elephant Id go for grey base with volt accents, the volt elephant skin throws me off. Other than that, these are awesome
Not really, it's obviously not licensed by oregon or the ncaa but in the end it's artistic expression...I'm sure there are legalities but I'm so small time and i'm not marketing them to sell so I don't see the harm in it......thanks for all the feedback guys, good and bad!
lol Rell must be the 1 who copped em why else would he be mad lol sorry Rell but these are fuckin garbage as fuck look ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like the pit crews whatsoever and he's right SN needs to stop posting these super wack kicks.
Naw not mad, shit I don't even like the shoe lol. But I can't hate on the mans work. Looks like quality job to me. Guarantee all the people that don't like the shoe now would be the same people to buy them if JB were to release them as a *cough limited *cough release. Shits would sell out. But since some customizer completely change the look of the shoe and painted it he gets no props. SMH
