It is no great surprise that in the wake of the all red Nike Air Yeezy 2 reveal, we’ve seen several other sneakers adopt the ‘Red October’ look. The latest model to don the bloody look is one of those shoes that itself has influenced plenty of imitators, the Air Jordan XI as customized by one Eric Lowry. El Cappy’s latest custom has a slight Pantone lean to it with the drenched red patent leather and Cordura mix, but these skip the white midsole/clear outsole combo in favor of even more red. Let us know how these compare to earlier Jordan XI customs, all-red designs and El Cappy’s own best work and stick with Sneaker News for the latest custom kicks.

What is sad is that people will diss these which are not bad at all. But the moment that JB releases these, people will be definitely camped out for these. I'm not a big fan of costumes shoes, (IMO) I think they're jsut too many out there, it's too over saturdated. I beleive It should be treated like art, only putting out a few customes very so often, not every week. But since SN and SC will highlight daily, I guess the artist will feel to customize everything they feel needs to be customized.
