The Lance Mountain x Nike SB Air Jordan 1 sneaker is just begging to be customized. The scratch off flavor of the sneakers has already inspired plenty of people to put their own spin on them with custom designs. No doubt the most intricate that we’ve seen yet is this creation from Dank Customs, which outfits the two shoes with some graphics that reference the two icons that made them possible: the black pair goes heavy on the MJ detailing while the white has a portrait of a young Lance Mountain. Take a look at the two after the break and tell us if you think this is an upgrade to these QS Air Jordan 1s.

Yo, Dank is a beast (one of, if not, my favorite customizers), but save for the Lance Mountain face logo on the outer heel of the left white shoe (seen in the 3rd pic from the bottom), the other LM face logos look way off, due to the "teeth" being done incorrectly. If you Google "Lance Mountain logo", you can see how the logo was supposed to look. It doesn't make sense that he would make one of the face/logos on point and then change the rest of them up. I get that artists want to put their own spin on things, but changing such an integral part of his logo is like putting an afro on the Jumpman. Don't get me wrong, his work was amazing on these shoes (as per usual), save for the teeth thing. But maybe there's some reasoning behind it that makes complete sense.

Are the designs painted on or scratched off?  Either way, it's a great custom, but to get that detail by scratching the top coat away is really impressive.

It's a dope looking shoe, until you actually wear it, and the designs rub off

Dope imo. Sneaker customizers > Nike/Jordan brand designers hahahaha.....

@AWK21 I wonder if there is any way to "finish" the shoe by coating the paint with some sort of material, like a customizer would do after painting a shoe. It would be dope to be able to do that once the paint on your pairs got a look that you were happy with, effectively saving that look for the life of the shoe. I've never painted shoes though (or anything else for that matter, save for a few months doing commercial painting), so I have no idea if this is possible.


Any customizers/artists care to chime in?
