Dunk High devotee Diversitile’s latest custom sneaker reaches beyond his established niche to combine the Nike LeBron X‘s jewel theme with 2013’s Pantone Color of the Year. There’s a lot more than just 17-5641 on this design, but the ‘Emerald’ LeBron 10 custom is indeed a fine exemplar of the gemstone in question. This angular design’s faceted tooling is maximized with more added to the upper while gold branding and midsole speckling drive home the luxury vibe. Nike Basketball chose Chinese Jade as their green gem of choice for the LeBron 10; let us know how Diversitile‘s Emeralds compare and if you’ll be grabbing one of the 12 available pairs.
These fit the precious stone theme and look better than a majority of the released X's to date. Nicely/ appropriately executed.
I like these, but this whole custom thing is starting to get annoying. Dudes do up sneakers to be put up for sale at ridiculous prices, and sneaker blogs like SN market the for-sale kicks. When I see more and more custom shoes on this site, or any other, I do marvel at the work, but I also shake my head since these blogs use those shoes as click-bait, and the seller benefits more from the advertising. I would have a hell of a lot more respect, if these blogs didn't give info where to buy the customs rather than just show them off. But that's me. I'm certain others disagree
@NuttyKicks This custom shit is getting out of hand. You see at least 3 new customs every week. But just like every other thing, folk run it into the ground.
