Air Jordan III ‘Dave White’ Customs by Mache

Colorway ‘sampling’ is undoubtedly the biggest trend in custom sneakers these days, and those at the head of the class have progressed all the way to imitating complex designs like the ‘Nerf’ Zoom KD IV and Kobe VII ‘Leopard’.  The latest pair is arguably the most complex yet, because not only is it incredibly demanding to replicate an innovative artist’s unique handcrafted style, but also perhaps equally as difficult to blend that application seamlessly with another model’s inextricable signature elements.  That’s what make’s Mache‘s Air Jordan III ’Dave White’ customs so impressive, and this new arrangement of the familiar Chicago Bulls colors proves this quarter-century veteran still can still shock us after all these years.  Click through for more angles and let us know if these are the best color-swap customs we’ve seen here on Sneaker News.

Dave White x Air Jordan 1 ‘Wings For The Future’ – Available on eBay

Although Jordan Brand rarely, if ever, collaborates with an outside source, selecting Dave White as the man to spearhead the collaboration was a decision we could all support. Dave White, whose artworks have instilled him deeply in the sneaker sub-culture, has collaborated with Nike Sportswear many times before, creating a nice capsule of Air Max classics in a redone Black/Grey/Volt colorway. The Air Jordan 1, which we can call the most ‘Lifestyle’-driven Air Jordan of the entire line, was the canvas for this commemorative partnership; 23 pairs of the first Dave White x Air Jordan 1 were created and released via online auction, with proceeds going to the Jordan Brand WINGS For The Future program. A few months later, Sneaker News broke the news of another version of the Air Jordan 1 DW, featuring a brand new colorway. Originally rumored to be a 2011 release, not much has come out of the news-wire supporting such a claim, and a release before the New Year seems rather unlikely. However, a few pairs have popped up for sale at online auctions, which, according to the seller, were from a retailer in China. You might feel a bit antsy from purchasing shoes from that part of the globe due to recent developments involving a certain number of overseas footwear sellers, but check out the gallery of images of this great collaboration below and check out the available pairs from kiddcandy-2008 on eBay.

Air Jordan 1 High DW – New Detailed Images

Best Air Jordan 1 collaboration ever?  Dave White’s ‘Wings for the Future’ design doesn’t have a ton of competition, but given that the Levis x AJ1 ’23/501′ package is the only other AJ1 collabo, it would indeed take an impressive effort to take over that #1 spot.  DW makes his case with one of the most intricate colorways we’ve seen on this or any other Air Jordan Legacy model, a Chicago-style palette bursting with elephant print, stars and paint splatters that features the classic ‘Wings’ silhouette on the hangtag and insole patch.  The warm reception so far pretty well insures these will sell out instantly upon their presumably limited retail release, so click through to see the biggest AJ1 drop since the ‘Banned’ edition and stick with Sneaker News for the US release date.  via HC

Very rarely do we get a treat of this magnitude. The Air Jordan 1 and Dave White, collaborating on a limited edition Air Jordan sneaker, pulling out all the stops with the sick shoebox and all the Jordan-centric detailing done in Dave White fashion. The 23 pairs he did for the WINGS For The Future back in February was amazing in itself, but these right here? These will actually release and become attainable to the sneakerhead who has heralded the original Air Jordan and Dave White’s signature sneaker artwork for years. The Air Jordan 1 DW has no shortage of detailing, like the special labels behind the tongue, the elephant print, the Jordan WINGS logo (that famous poster that most you probably have hanging up on your dorm-room wall), and so on. Check out these new detailed images from Kicks-lab and stick with Sneaker News for more info on this upcoming release!

When Dave White took on the Air Jordan 1 for a special charity auction edition of the shoe this past February, only 23 pairs were up for grabs, leaving many would-be bidders out of luck. Now that Dave has teamed up with Jordan Brand for a second Air Jordan 1 go-around, it’s looking like these might be a bit more attainable, although we are still awaiting official release info before we can get too excited. The good news is that at least for now, we get an incredible extensive look at all of the finer details of the shoe, along with its packaging and hang tag. Opinions still seem to be mixed on the shoe, but that won’t stop these from disappearing with the quickness when they’re made available. Keep reading for a deep gallery of detailed images and stay tuned for some release specifics coming soon. via Kenlu

Dave White x Air Jordan 1

air jordan 1 by dave white 1 Dave White x Air Jordan 1

Some sneakerheads view sneakers as a mode of personal expression. Just as one could tattoo his/her body with permanent ink, another can rock a pair of sneakers and communicate words with through footwear. Sneakers like the Air Jordan XI, adidas Superstar, and Reebok Pump do more than provide cushioning – they assist in creating a sense of style and attitude that few other pieces of apparel can. Dave White, who rose to prominence in the sneaker sub-culture with his signature style of painting, was selected to re-imagine the Air Jordan 1 for the Jordan Brand WINGS For The Future program, and through the finished product we could interpret the message of his design clearly. It was one of history, inner and outer beauty, and iconoclastic agendas – a message that Jordan Brand itself carried through its 25+ years of existence.

This September, fans of the Air Jordan 1 and Dave White‘s brush strokes will be fortunate enough to experience a second Air Jordan 1 designed by the world-renown artist. This time around, he focuses more on Jordan Brand themes, like the classic Black/Red/White Chicago Bulls banner and elephant print, making for shoe all the more relatable to the Air Jordan loyalist. While the release information for this Air Jordan 1 hasn’t been confirmed, these will in fact release to the public (and not limited to 23 pairs via auction). Continue reading for more exclusive images of the Dave White x Air Jordan 1 and stick with Sneaker News for more information as it develops.
