Air Jordan IV “Area 72″ Customs by DMC Kicks
2012′s “Galaxy” concept continues to have a strong influence with sneaker customs a year later. When will the Area 72 focus catch on? We’ve only seen a handful of Area 72-inspired customs hit our headlines, but we’ll add another one to the 2013 All-Star column with this Air Jordan IV “Area 72″ Custom by DMC Kicks. His most recent work featured on Sneaker News was a remixed “Easter” version of the Nike LeBron X, but this time around he adopts an existing concept seen in the Barkley Posite Max release with the black/red upper, hints of purple, and the white fragment print on the upper. More of the Air Jordan IV “Area 72″ is just below, so take a look and stay tuned for more custom sneaker updates.
I can respect the time/effort put into customs, but they don't all need a damn article on them. These look like hacked fakes. He couldn't even put laces on them.
I customize small-scale diecast cars, so I can respect the effort that goes into customizing sneakers. No easy feat; it's tougher than it looks. I will agree that most customs have been more misses than hits, like this one. But hey, that's art for ya.
That being said however, I'll take the explosion of customs over the explosion of fusion/hybrid sneakers anyday! At least customs don't go out to the masses.
He got that speckled pattern down. These are just ok. The dog in the background was my favorite part. Lol.

I think sneakernews is doing a great job featuring all these "customs" and giving artists some deserved credit. and finishes on these are decent no doubt. BUT I LOL'ed reading all these comments. because it's true. these "customs" are getting out of hand in a bad way with some artists.
WTF!!! This custom thing is getting out of control now, It need to stop. AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!!
da colors seem rite but jus off.like the red should move down then the speckles which r too big should then move down too. he couldve at least tried to put a raygun on da tounge an multi colored laces
Just stop it please with this dumb stupid shit,shits look horrible fuckin up shoes trying to remix em..don't get me wrong I like customs but this is just plain ugly&wack
