Did you catch the event recap of the Sneaker Freaker Swap Meet? It’s definitely worth a look if you want to get a look at sneaker scenes on the other side of the world, but before you head over there, check out another event on the Eastern Hemisphere – the Street Dreams x Sole Exposition ‘Sneaker Free Market’ in South Korea. One of the main attractions at the event was an amazing showcase of customs sneakers done by a collective called The Creakers, who completed a sick Nike Air PR1 x Air Yeezy ‘Net’ custom (complete with a glow-in-the-dark outsole and upper). Another custom worth checking out was the Air Jordan XI with the white/black zebra-like print (or like the Daktari Dunk Lows from a decade ago). Flip through the gallery below and let us know which customs you like best! Photos: IST

Customs = Fake. Thats the definition. Even if they the sweetest customs. We americans call them fake because it isn't a colorway that particular brand created. If you made it, its fake. Collaboration customs can be considered real. All these shoes are real Them South Beach Jordans 7s is sexy tho.

Sorry for the "noob" question but exactly how are customs made? I know they are not fake(: But do people who work there just kind of do their own little thing at the shops and rock'em or sell'em? Or what?!!

Did anyone else notice the orange Nike tag on the cool grey XI's? I thought the orange tag was a new thing that Nike was going to roll out later this summer. Has the orange tag been around for a while in the Asian market? Did Nike produce a fresh batch of cool greys under the radar? SMH.

Customs are not actually big in Korea, but I have seen people rocking them. It's just that this event was pretty small and dude brought a lot of customs to sell. I was really feeling the Yeezy PR1s, they were really nice in person. The even was a bit of a letdown though.
