We’ve seen several sneaker customizers work their magic by transforming a pair of shoes into the Nike Mag, but have we ever seen the inverse of that concept? Kickasso Kustoms does just that, taking the Nike Mag 2011 and giving it the “Elite” presence, transforming the once grey/aqua upper into the signature Black/Gold colorway signified by the Nike Basketball Elite footwear. Doing a custom of this magnitude (considering the high price for a pair) certainly is not for the faint of heart, so kudos for actually following through with the plan and doing so with excellence. More photos below, so take a look and let us know if you think the Mags look better, or if they’re best left alone!

I love this custom. There has to be some credit given to him for risking painting a shoe that costs more than my car. lol. That "elite" look just looks great on most shoes and this is no exception. As classic as the silhouette is, you really can't knock him for being the first one (that i've seen) to put another color on it.
FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK everyone hating. this shoe is SUUUUUPER dope. This is probably the best custom i've ever seen...aside from SBTG's Jordan III.
I am not a big lover of Mags, but I think the customization is sweet. I like this better than the original colorway, actually.
Apparently, by looking at the comments, I guess I'm the only one that thinks so.
Ha lol only fags like you suck resellers dicks! Fuck the shoe game. Trying to impress the sneaker head community wit your corny defence comment lol smh
Fuck you Nike! No reason why a company your size can sellout of the jordan 3's when I wanna spend money! Again I say fuck nike!
I agree they aren't great, but I don't think the Mags that mache made for cortland finnegan were very good either.
@BThomas1 You F*** B*tches with them.
@BThomas1 You can always tell who the youngins are
@DominicD I was more so pointing to the fact they said no one has touched them yet.
@JFresh_136 No man you wear spandex tights with a man thong.....haha I bet if Kanye started to....All these hypebeast kids would....
@louie V You're a fucking idiot....it's called get a fucking connect! Its part of the game. You win some and you lose some. If you can't handle missing out on some kicks.....and you are gonna bitch about it. Just don't buy jordans/nikes. Its pathetic....how people complain they dont get their kicks...I'm glad they make the shoes limited....so dumbasses like you can't get them. People like you make me smile! hahaha You loser!
