When we first showed the Nike Zoom Revis “Mag” customs from Brina Villanueva there was not a sole who had anything but praise for the work. We’re thankfully getting another look at the pair, which does a sublime job of transferring the Nike Mag look over to this contemporary trainer sig from the Swoosh team. Yes, they even light up. What’s more, there’s a pretty good guarantee that they won’t run you nearly as much as the real deal. Take another look at the Nike Zoom Revis “Mag” version below and then check out the rare chance to own them from vultron1 on eBay.

nike zoom revis mag customs Nike Zoom Revis Mag Customs by Brian Villaneuva

Over the last couple of years, the “custom sneaker” has been defined by an existing model made distinct by a new and creative colorway. Guys like Mache Customs have dominated that category, with his keen eye for colorways being spotted by the Miami Heat duo to the point where he was actually commissioned to make one-of-ones for ‘em, and Revive Customs has used his impeccable touch for swapping soles on some old-school models while remixing colorways on the Air Max 1 and Air Trainer 1. One sneaker customizer that the community should also have the respect for is Brian Villanueva aka “Wolfstein”, who goes above and beyond the basic colorways and infuses several ideas into one incredible concept which ultimately culminates in a new pair of shoes.

His past projects have made it clear that he’s absolutely enamored by the Nike Mag, as his recent HyperMag customs and his unique Prototype design have hinted at, and his latest work pretty much solidifies his desire to recreate the famous sneaker from Back To The Future II in any way he can. Already impressed by the futuristic look of the Nike Zoom Revis, Brian Mag’d out the shoes by adding in a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery, a built-in circuit board to control lights and the battery, an on/off switch, electroluminescent detailing on the strap and midsole, LED lights on the heel, a built-in port for recharging, and a custom-built charger. Most sneaker customizers have a hard time adding just one from that list of ingredients. It seems like a lot to fit into one shoe, right? It sure is, but what sends this custom over the top is that the shoes are entirely wearable. Check out the detailed gallery and video below because these are simply one of the best Customs we’ve ever seen.

adidas adipower tron 3 customs adidas adiPower Howard 3 TRON Customs by Brian Villanueva

Brian Villanueva‘s Nike HyperMag custom was one of 2012′s standout after-market designs.  Adding a Mag 2011-style light-up feature to the Zoom Hyperdunk that’d relit the Marty McFly flame four years earlier, Villanueva set the stage for his signature look involving luminescence inspired by 1980s films.  That’s why this new adidas adiPower Howard 3 ‘TRON’ custom job is such a natural follow-up, its Li-ion battery-powered build customized down to the handcrafted price tag.  Ready for wear but not for serious sport usage, this crazy Dwight Howard sig is depicted further below and available now from Vultron1 on eBay.

The original Nike Mag designed was in fact a direct inspiration to Eric Avar’s Nike Hyperdunk of 2008, and sneaker customizer Brian Villanueva actually went about a Mag-inspired Hyperdunk Custom before. Upon the 2011 release of the Mag, Villanueva decided to revisit his original project and powering it up to be on par with the original; this Nike HyperMag custom features several mechanical details like a rechargeable lithium ion battery, LED lighs on the heel, electroluminscent tech on the tongue and outsole, and a built in charger that can be plugged into an outlet or a USB. Brian’s amazed us before with before with his Lunar prototype before, and this custom is certainly no sleeper as he brings the Hyperdunk to the future with this amazing work. A gallery of images awaits you below so take a look and let us know if this is the direction you’d like customs sneakers to go in.

Nike “Wolfstein” Prototype Customs By Brian Villanueva

nike wolfstein prototype Nike Wolfstein Prototype Customs By Brian Villanueva

What sneaker customizers have in common is that they see a unique potential in an existing shoe that the general public may not see. Not to say that Nike hasn’t done amazing in-house stuff, but over the last couple of years, sneaker customs have risen in popularity and given these customizers a star-status in the sneaker game. But this distinct vision goes beyond colorways and into the realm of design and concepts, so while we haven’t seen too many self-made designs, this prototype, build by Brian “Wolfstein” Villanueva, might be the start of a new genre of ‘custom’ sneakers.

According to Brian, the concept of this prototype was born in 2008 and focuses on technology and the advancements made by Nike footwear; seen in his ‘Wolfstein’ Prototype custom are built-in Apple touch-screen displays, electro-luminescent technology, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, built-in charging system, and the recently released Nike+ Technology sensors – all in a futuristic ‘Nike Mag’ styled colorway. The Lunar outsole (the original base model of the shoe is the Lunar Presto Rejuven8) also acts as the foundation of this next-level design, fitting with the theme of forward-progress tech. A complete look at this custom is right ahead so take a look and let us know if you’d like to see more custom sneaker designs above custom colorways!
