Jordan hybrid sneakers are always under the careful scrutiny of purists of the brand, but surprisingly, the verdict on the Son Of Mars was reached rather quickly upon its debut release in February. A similar release known as the Rare Air of 2010 was, for lack of a better word, a flop, which made the popularity of the Son Of Mars are ‘suprise’. With a nice crop of upcoming releases on the way, like the ‘Bred’, the ‘Bordeaux’, and the new ‘Grey/Gold/Blue’, the Son Of Mars is staying put, but Mache Customs proved, with his sick Air Yeezy Customs, that perhaps the right colorway was all the shoe needed.
Today, we get a look at another Son Of Mars custom inspired by the Air Yeezy – the unreleased sample colorway worn by Kanye during his 2009 performance at the Grammy Awards. Done by Brian ‘Wolfstein’ Villanueva, this Mars x Yeezy custom adopts a similar tonal black upper, but with grey hits on the midsole, a hint of red on the outsole, and a powerful glow-in-the-dark toe, illuminating a refreshing blue glow. We’ve got a detailed gallery of this great custom work just below, so if you want to get a jump on some of Wolfstein’s crazy custom projects, follow Brian Wolfstein Villanueva on Twitter to be on top of his projects and let us know what you think of the Son Of Mars Air Yeezy’ Grammy’ customs below!
ha, nike needs to hire these guys, with all the crap they've been pushing out lately. all those circus colors and hybrids have got to stop. but these here are nice.
Dope I think we will see something along these lines some time in the future. Oh wait the yeezys and son of mars black?
Hoestly speaking, the BLINK custom and this custom would have been off shelves if not instantly at least very quickly.
I didn't like this model until this color custom just dropped on us right now! ..This model with this color orientation looks like it was meant to be all along. Very promising and so exquisite, honestly. Very nice job done here on these and the cement print is nevery dis-pleasing. :)
how come all these custom SON OF MARS colorways look wayyy better than the legit JB colorways??? smh
