Did Yeezy teach Mache how to do customs? Well, we know for sure that he directed him toward his latest custom creation – the Jordan Son Of Mars ‘Son Of Yeezy’. One of the design features of the Jordan Son Of Mars that seemed to be a bit of a turn-off to some Jordan fans was the mid-foot strap, so Mache transformed it into a sneaker that uses a thick mid-foot strap as a highlight of its aesthetic – the Nike Air Yeezy. Reconstituting the Son Of Mars ‘Club Purple’ into the Black/Pink Yeezy in a seamless form, the Son Of Yeezy is the perfect overlapping of the Air Yeezy in its most popular form and the hybrid design of the Son of Mars. Enough talk – check out the gallery of Mache Customs’ latest banger and let us know if this sick concept changes your opinion of the Son Of Mars!
STONE THIS BASTARD MASHITTY WITH FOAMPOSITES. DAMN, STOP PROMOTING FAKES!!!! I AIN'T PAY GOOD MONEY FOR YEEZYS SO THIS POSER CANT SELL PAINT BY NUMBERS FAKE SHIT. WTF SNEAKERNEWS? IF SOME CHINESE FACTORY PUT THIS SHIT OUT WOULD YOU PROP IT UP ON YOUR SITE TOO? SMGDH... HAVE SOME STANDARDS Y'ALL.
It'd be sick if an actual yeezy colorway dropped for the Son of Mars. Cause the shoe is honestly not ugly., it just has extremely horrible colorways dropping. Like the Bordeaux CW? Eww. Either way. Very sick custom Mache.
Not bad when I first seen these shoes I thought maybe a solid color would make them look better IMO ......
one of the best customs i have ever seen took the mismatched flaws of one shoe to make an amzing one props to mache
ONCE AGAIN!!! Proving that he is the best customizer EVER...from concept to execution, NOBODY does it better than MACHE.
Is this only considered bad/ugly because its a custom or because its a not popular shoe? Because to me it obviously exposing the fact that the Son of Mars with a few color changes are not too far away from the highly coveted Yeezy. Its obvious that they cannot make the same shoe but the Yezzy borrowed heavily from various Jordans so why wouldn't Jordan Brand designers make a generic version of a popular shoe? Mache's custom actually made the shoe better IMO because the other colorways sucked. I can only think if Ye just wore these with a few more touches from the original and better materials people like you would buy them. It looks like something from the design process of the Yezzy. The son of mars uses some of the Jordan's Ye wears casually so its not far fetched. I would even go as far to say if JB did like Mache and copied the Yezzy colorways and used premium materials so they wouldnt be considered fake and had glow in the dark bottoms some of the people who have no chance of grabbing any Yezzy's in their life would happily wear these because practically to the masses (not people who participate on sites like these with all due respect) it would be just as good. If you like the Yezzy for design, materials and "craftsmanship" ok I can totally understand they aren't the same its a knock off but when I see this custom I think of how much of a miss JB did with the colorways because this shoe is basically similar and people think it SUCKS (and Obama, Jay-Z and Lil Wayne have all worn the shoe and nobody cared). So props to Mache for always doing him.
Now this is gonna be the COLORWAY to take the SON OF MARS in the right direction... its like the Air Yeezy but affordable for EVERYONE, i dig it.
Can any of you honestly say that if you saw some dude in the street wearing these before you saw it on this site as a "so -called custom", you wouldn't laugh your fucking asses off till you cried.? And take pictures of the douche that wore them so you can crack jokes with your peoples? COME ON YALL YOU KNOW I'M RIGHT
