A ‘Year of the Dragon’ custom of the LeBron 9 has yet to be seen, although the first release of the ninth shoe was in fact a ‘Dragon’ homage in the form of the Blue Flame. Here we have another rendition of ‘Dragon’ as sneaker customizer Proof Culture throws in an array of China-specific details like the gold/red lettering on the heel-tab, the dragon logo on the tongue, the dragon scale detailing on the mid-foot wing, and jade green colorized upper. It’s great to see customizers use the LeBron 9 as the go-to model, so let’s hope more bangers like these surface as we send off the LeBron 9 in perfect fashion! Photos: paintorthread

These are a decent costom job. No clunky paint splattered all over the shoe. It's a good look and not your normal custom cw
