Sneaker customizers are well aware that messing around with elephant print is no easy task. We’ll go ahead and say that no sneaker customer has ever gotten that crackle-graphic down pat, so we’ll appreciate anyone who attacks it without fear. This latest sneaker custom by DeJesus is an attempt at ‘Black/Cement’, made historic by the Air Jordan III, on an Air Jordan VII; the VII is typically done in tonal style, but DeJesus manages to bring that two-toned element to the upper with a respectable finish of elephant print. More angles of this sneaker custom below, so take a look and let us know what you think of the concept for this model.
It sucks when you have real custom artists who produce dope work for example Peculiar Kinetics and Mache and they don't get love, but, sites like sneaker news post hot garbage like this. Even El Cappy's elephant print is better and his stuff isn't that good. Customizers like this need to take a back seat it's an art not a quick money grab.
The shoe itself looks good but although the elephant print is nice its still lacking something, it can't pull off the same look as the III's
@dopestyle89 actually Mache gets plenty love . alot of work from Mache is on here . his customs are nice but getting your hands on uh pair is the issue
@SoulTemples it's lacking that grey around the inside and tongue...that's really what sets off the elephant print on the 3s
