Most of you are probably pumped about the Air Jordan XI “Bred” restock. These customs are almost a visual interpretation of that statement. The man responsible for that crazy ‘Grinch’ custom of the Air Jordan IV hits us with another Frankenstein of a creation, which we must say spells out a better definition of ‘custom’ than any repainted sneaker we’ve seen before. The Air Jordan XI “Bred Pump” by Freaker Sneaks features the revolutionary Reebok Pump module attached to the Air Jordan XI, creating an air-filled Pump bladder for that added lockdown fit, but it’s the sheer design of this unique concoction that should coerce a response – both positive and negative. Another alteration that may not be so noticeable is the new lace eyelet that replace the classic hoop (a personal preference of the customizer). These have been completed for some time, but it’s still an incredible concept that shouldn’t go unnoticed, so check out the images below and let us know what you think about this redefined “Air” Jordan XI.
This is why I love customs man, just design something new, rare or replicate something the Brand should be doin'. Makes me wonder, should I put Fila, Reebok, Adidas, Jumpman etc. logos all on a pair of AF1's to cause controversy? Hahahaha... man, f*** Nike/Jordan Brand they can't DESIGN S***!! That's why sneaker customizers are taking over this s***. Nas - "No Idea's Original".
I think these are kinda cool cuz around the time jordan started commin out wit fusions i thought what if the brands collabed on something, this isn't what i was thinkin but im glad someone else had the same idea, and these are done clean, if he would of did the pump tongue wit some 2s i think they would of looked better
I'll be first in the gutter, waiting in line in front of the Trap House for this garbage! Hahhahahahahah. I can cop these from ANY "KNOCK" in the Bay Area. Hahahahhahaha.
Mind blowing garbage, I respect the creative aspect, but it looks like a cheap bootleg you see on them sites that sell lebronjordan x with a AirMax airbubble
Man this custom sneaker ish is getting far out of hand. Hell might as well go to a flea market and snap some pics of those kicks there and call em "custom kicks".
i rather see this than dissecting them lol. nothing wrong with a lil custom, plus he keept these the same way. a Chicago Bulls logo on the tongue would've made these dope.
I understand creativity but why fuccc up a classic!!! No one wants to see this ish and for sneakernews to feature it, it's a joke to all sneaker enthusiasts!!!!
That's like placing the swoosh on a pair of Iversons, you just don't do that!!!! This is the type of ish shops in China do
@"C.E.O." This gotta be Lil B making these ridiculous comments. "F nike/Jordan brand" but own a few pair wondering if you should put other logos on em to cause problems. You sound crazy.
@sammysamdaniels1 I think it's garbage but T.E.H.O.
Life is good!
@OGeverything_ I agree, I wouldn't necessarily rock them myself, but I would keep them on the shelf just to strike up some conversation. I seen worse things done to 11s so this really don't bother me.
@Jupiter Napex Honestly....you like it? Because you didn't comment on the shoe at all.
Only the opinions people said. And Most everyone agrees. So what's yours......? You like these? Or just defending this crap?
@Blueice .....w/ a cellmate named Bubba too!
@justwin I just design what Nike should be doin' bro. I got tired of waiting for Nike to drop some dope kicks so why not design 'em myself? But yeah, I did sound crazy hahahaha....
