Some more interesting customs to show you – a rarely used Nike Zoom Kobe VI done “Yeezy” style. You might be wondering what the connection between Kobe Bryant and Kanye West is, but it was the “Black Mamba” short film that Kanye and Nike used to tease the Air Yeezy 2 long before images of the shoe ever surfaced. Going back to this custom – Sal Freshsole takes the delicate Kobe VI upper and blacks it out while adding a punchy pink lining and glow-in-the-dark detailing on the outsole. Your thoughts on this Nike Kobe VI custom? Check out the extra photos below and let us know what you think.

Most of you know ROM as one of the best sneaker customizers (particularly the Dunk High) out on the scene, but he also has the ability to transfer his artistry from the sneakers to the canvas. In fact, his talent was probably first placed on a canvas first, as seen on these various sneaker-inspired artworks that include an MVP-styled LeBron, the Red Toro IV, Yeezys, and more. We’ve got a nice crop of some of his incredible work below, so give it a look and head to his official website to learn more about him and to check out his other works.

If you were going to transform an Air Jordan into something approximating the Nike Air Yeezy 2, what’s your jumping off point?  We’ve seen a couple of IVs, which makes sense because we know how much Kanye loves that sole on the Air Flight ’89.  IIIs are a given because they’re perhaps the most universally beloved of all Jordans.  VIs were a part of the first Air Yeezy’s sampling process and at one point gave it a sole.  But with the molded heel, fashion forward premium construction and of course number, one could argue that there’s no better match than the underrated Air Jordan II.  Here we see Taiwanese designer William Yo add a midfoot strap to a ‘Solar Red’ colorup that lands on what appears to be the 2010 black/white release.  Let us know how these compare to the aforementioned Jordan x Yeezy customs and stick with Sneaker News for the latest.

air yeezy 2 red october custom Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red October Customs by Mache

Coinciding with today’s release of Yeezus, the “Red October” Air Yeezy 2 is here. Let’s clarify: the custom remix done by the likes of Mache, applying the all over red look to a retail pair of the Nike Air Yeezy 2, is here. Of course the materials on the forthcoming red colorway look to be switched around just a bit, so Mache’s appropriation is a little bit off, but that’s just nitpicking on an otherwise incredible job. Get the full photos of his all over red treatment right after the jump and let us know if you think he is a god (Of customs).

LeBron James continues to switch up his sneakers on and off the court for the 2013 NBA Finals, this time donning a pair of Yeezys while on his way to play. More specifically he had on the Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Pure Platinum”, one of the original two colorways of the sneaker (Remember that the third, “Red October” version should be on its way for a release later this year). Unlike some other players in the NBA that we’ve spotted in the past, King James did not choose to play in the pair, instead going with none other than the Nike LeBron X Elite when it came time for game time. See the shots of Bron in his Yeezys after the jump and stay tuned for more coverage of the man on and off the court.
