Air Jordan VI “Jason Voorhees” Customs by El Cappy

The nixed Nightmare on Elm Street-inspired ‘Freddy Krueger’ Dunk Low SB is every bit the urban legend you’d expect from a shoe whose muse is a nightmare-inhabiting, razor-gloved mass murdering maniac.  Its signature sweater-and-seared-flesh look has been appropriated on a couple of color swap custom Air Jordans in recent months, and you can’t mention this ’80s slasher legend without his Friday the 13th peer and 2003 film foe entering the discussion.  So it was really only a matter of time and a question of ‘whodunit’ and with which ‘weapon’ before a design like El Cappy‘s latest came into the spotlight.

This Air Jordan VI ‘Jason Voorhees‘ looks like it was exhumed from Camp Crystal Lake, a murky, detail-packed design whose distinct touches include blood-splattered laces and Voorhees’d ‘Jumpman’ tees with decapitated heads to boot.  This item in particular is a reminder of how, in an entirely different way, Gourmet’s early catalog made a similar statement about the foundational nature of the Air Jordan’s influence in the streetwear world; should custom artists further extend their scope to include conceptual branding elements and other ‘official’ collaboration niceties?  Let us know what you think of El Cappy’s latest custom job when you’re on the other side looking at more photos and stick with Sneaker News for the sneakerhead scene’s best custom designs.

The collar area of the VI always reminded me of the classic hockey mask. These are some of the coolest customs I've ever seen.

The green is too much and muddies the design. If he'd stuck to white/grey, then the blood, the effect would be tighter. Still, props on the effort.

With all this cannibal stuff going in the news anyone rocking these is likely to have the cops called on em.

I know he put in quality work on the shoe even though it doesn't look great. That shirt on the other hand is pretty bad ass

The shirts cool. The shoes are aight they could be a little cleaner

Good idea, but should have toned it down. Went a little too over the top, makes em look like a mess instead of a legit custom. If someone walked by with those, you wouldn't realize that it's a custom, you'd think someone spilled paint on em

Sickest part is the custom Jumpman on the back. He killed this one. Props.
