Will Jordan Brand ever take hold of the “What The” theme? We’d be surprised if it happened, but that doesn’t mean that the custom creators can’t pull it off. DeJesus Customs took a shot at it on this pair, which pulls at a range of Jordans wider than just the limited amount of AJV colorways. What’s more, the colorways borrowed are limited bunch-amongst them “Doernbecher”, “Miro”, “Dave White”, and more. Get more below, see if you can spot all the different pairs utilized, and tell us if you like what DeJesus Customs did with this hand painted Air Jordan V custom.
How about everyone stop looking at these shoes as if you would rock them out in public and look at them more like artwork....like they are....
I almost said something bad about the shoe, about how I didn't agree with some of the custom work on it, and then I thought... "What if I tried customizing a shoe" Then I looked at these shoes again and appreciated the art a little more.
I really like a lot of DeJesus' customs. He usually keeps things clean and simple and executes very well but these are hideous. Sorry but the V silo has a lot going on as it is. A "what the" theme just wouldn't go well with these. I could be proven wrong but not here.
I'd like to see this design applied to AF1's. (Since there's unlimited possibilities for 'em) And I don't think Nike ever designed an AF1 "What The" theme. I wonder if Nike/Jordan Brand are taking notes right now lmfao!!
Seems kinda unclear what the theme was. Nice, clean, work, but if you're gonna do a "what the DB", just do that. The Dave White part (among others) seems out of place on these IMO.
these aint no what the 5s. it has a lot doernbecher thing going on, and i alsi see dave white details
@JoseBautista your right !!
