Creative minds precede creative products, and so fellas like Jason Negron, Mache Customs, and El Cappy have produced some of the craziest sneaker customs that we could only image just a few years ago. In regards to applying one theme onto a foreign object (for example, ‘Nerf’ onto the LeBron), the aforementioned guys as well as a select group of other have got it down pat. Their work has also opened up doors for others to tickle their imaginative fancy by embarking on their own custom projects, like this latest Air Jordan VI design put forth by sneaker customizer and restorer DeJesus. He applied Atmos’ take of the Air Max 1 onto the Air Jordan VI, using the elephant print on hte upper and the Black/White/Aqua colorway for that iconic touch. More shots of this custom below, so take a look and let us know what you think.
These are kinda dope. Started as Oreos I believe but a nice job I say! I like the use of ideas from one Jordan used on another like he did with the elephant print.
how is it random when it clearly says it's Atmos inspired... which is elephant, black, white and teal. true the elephant print was executed poorly, but it's still abiding to the inspiration they used.
What do you mean stay with the theme? The theme is from the Atmos AM87's, which have elephant print on them. These could be cool, but I don't know. Colour blocking doesn't seem to work like this.
