LeBron James was one of a select few athletes with serious connections who got a pair of the coveted ‘Oregon’ Air Jordan Vs.  LeBron has been varying up his own on-court footwear more than expected this season, and for a chunk at the beginning of 2013-14, he had switched back to the Nike LeBron 10 Elite in which he won his second NBA title.  Here’s that same LeBron 10 Elite done up in an Oregon Ducks custom by DMC Kicks, one that’s mostly black with green accents, and includes the metallic wing pattern that’s been prominent on UO football jerseys for a few years.  Click in to see more angles, let us know how they compare to the torrent of official Oregon colorways Nike has produced of late and stick with Sneaker News for the latest and greatest customs.

The Nike Kobe 9 Elite “All Star” had some glow in the dark sections to it, as did all of the Nike Basketball signature releases surrounding that event for this year. Did they have enough glow though? Gourmet Kickz apparently didn’t think so. The man went ahead and upgraded the Flyknit sections on the shoes to also feature that look, resulting in a design that’s certainly more of a head turner when the lights are off. Get with us after the break for the full imagery and hit up Gourmet Kickz if you like what you see.

asics gel lyte iii patta parra customs 01 570x425 Asics Gel Lyte III Patta x Parra Customs

If you said you were going to apply a Patta x Parra colorway to an Asics retro runner, longtime collectors might take umbrage with the idea and remind you that in fact, the Dutch artist’s red/yellow/blue combination dropped on the Gel Lyte Speed two years (and a host of new sneakerheads) before their epic Nike Air Max 1.  But this new Asics Gel Lyte III custom by Julien Swoosh is quite clearly aligned to that AM1 and not the LyteSpeed, its burgundy suede upper adding color complements that end up squarely in the neighborhood of that coveted AM1.  Click in to see the detail involved and let us know how these ‘Patta x Parra’ custom Gel Lyte IIIs compare to their muse.

Fortunately, guys like JBF Customs can make that happen. His newest creation, which riffs off an Air Jordan 3 from last year, features not only python skin, but also some samplings of shark and kangaroo as proof that he’s dedicated to advancing his craft. Continue reading to see the shoes in full detail and tell us in the comments if you’re feeling this take on the Jordan 3 “Joker” from JBF.
