Following up on his Nike “What The KD IV” Customs from a while back is the Nike “What The KD V” completed by none other than Mache Customs. This perfectly crafted mash-up of the most engaging KD V colorways looks like it came straight outta the Nike factory, which leads us to wonder if Nike would’ve come up with something similar if Kevin Durant took home the MVP trophy this season. With several elements like “Aunt Pearl”, “BHM”, “DMV”, and more, this ultimate remix of KD V hits is one you can’t miss out on! Check out this custom order of the Nike “What The KD V” below and let us know if you think these are better than the Nike LeBron X “MVP” that we unveiled to you earlier this week!
Tongue/liner – Aunt Pearl
Toebox/toe swoosh – BHM
Rear – Hulk
Midsole – Ice Blue
Side swoosh – Easter
Tongue/rear – Christmas
Toebox/swoosh – DMV
Toe swoosh – Nerf
Midsole – Area 72
Ok. Real talk.
First of all, I'm a big Mache fan (s/o to peeps in BK), but these are realll suspect.
If he really did this all by himself (through his art connects and what not), that is truly amazeballs. BUT Why do I have a feeling these were "hooked up" by Nike or someone else for him to say he did it or he has it?
Again, FULL RESPECT to him for being the best out there, but am I the only one who think these are TOO WELL DONE ?! Just questioning, not hating. If anyone knows how to pull this off right, let me know... or simply, he really did it and is one of a kind.
Looks like he painted on an aunt pearl and a Xmas shoe. Looks good. The "what the's" aren't anything new, but they do look good.
I hope Nike sees these customs and decides to release this colorway. So dope and way better than the lebron what the MVP.
I don't like these. I don't like any of the "What The ..." shoes. With that being said, he did a great job. A great custom job to me is one that is pulled off so flawlessly that it could be a factory release
Can't even front, these are nice... But another unreleased sample frum Nike... Thanks fa doin it big tho Mache
@212TP First of I'm NOT a fan of Mache. Mostly because all the work I've seen from him seems hacky, copied or unoriginal. Not that the "What the ?" concept is brand new... but at least these were executed well. and I dont think it's outside of his skill level to do this.
@acdc2 Right shoe base : Christmas KD , Left Shoe Base : Aunt Pearl KD
