The infamous ‘Bordeaux’ colorway as made famous by the Air Jordan VII is of course making its way onto the latest hybrid creation the Jordan Son of Mars later this year, but you’ve probably pondered at one time or another how the combo would work if ported over to another entry into the Air Jordan legacy series. Wonder no more, as sneaker customizer extraordinaire Mache has the answer, dialing the numbers back a few notches and building upon the Air Jordan V ‘Wolf Grey’ for the base. From there he turns the lights out, striping sections with some heavy black and then placing the namesake wine color on the rear. Never one to skimp on the details, Mache also made sure the tongues were consistent, creating a cool take on the angular design from the Air Jordan VII’s squishy tongue. Hit the jump with us to take a look at the Air Jordan V ‘Bordeaux’ customs (two pairs in existence, one for Mache and one for Nuggets baller Wilson Chandler) and let us know if you think the transfer is a success.
I would have taken this color way over the 5's last July, the stealth 14's and 10's, the royal blue 10's, and those garbage ass cool grey 12's. Mache for President.
they look a little amatuer but i bet if done with proper materials instead of paint they would be hot
most of the people that posted negative comments would most likely be in line for these if they came out. Just sayin' tho.
If the top of the toebox would have been maroon they would have looked better. The dude does some sick work. I just think he missed a bit on these
This dude got no originality....he jus takes colorways and concepts from certain shoes and puts em on a different shoe...he gets no props from me for any of his ish...thumb me down all you want but somebody had to say it
The black and bordeaux colors are way too shiny. these are not near some of the other customs this dude has made.
not the bordeaux cw by far...people get this cw wrong alot for some reason, even jb when the put on the cw for the spizike's and the son of mars(before the got the cw right). Here, you got only dark red and yellow and different shades of grey. Like the idea, but get it right.
Don't like these personally, but I give him credit for his creativity. These are probably the first customs that he made that I don't like...
Because a grail is a personal preference. Theres no fact to the term "grail". Idiot. I can't believe you said uninstall life. Reevaluate yours before making yourself look fucking ignorant & stupid as ass fuck
