The result is the Nike Air Force 1 High “Multi-Camo” pair, which puts on tiger, desert, and leopard variations of your favorite brown and olive military look. The sneakers also feature a little nod to the increasing presence of python in the custom scene, with a custom tongue tab that utilizes red snakeskin.

Air Jordan IV “Samurai” Customs by El Cappy

air jordan iv samurai 04 Air Jordan IV Samurai Customs by El Cappy

The Japanese influence in Tinker Hatfield’s personal style has never been more pronounced than with his latest revealed design – the Air Jordan XX8. It’s clear that the legendary footwear architect marches to a beat that we’re not entirely familiar with, yet we find ourselves following his lead willingly. Although not much of a Japanese influence is known with the design of the Air Jordan IV, a shoe that some may argue is Tinker’s best design ever, the muted and controlled colorway of the classic ‘White/Cement’ has that zen-like calm, making the customized ‘Samurai’ version by El Cappy a rather welcome fit. Going with traditional Japanese graphics on the midsole and on the upper wing with a Samurai mask logo embossed on the heel, this Air Jordan IV custom clearly took some Samurai-like discipline and focus. A gallery of this amazing work is just below so enjoy the fine details on one of the best customs we’ve seen this year.

The Air Jordan V has sort of done the military look before, with the green and orange combo of the Air Jordan V ‘Olive’ doing that theme without any overt connection. Linking things up in a bit more of a direct fashion is the Air Jordan V ‘Desert Storm’ by El Cappy and Joe Venuto, a creation which draws a line between the Air Jordan V and the Desert Storm military operation (both went down in 1990). The custom comes with a crazy camo look, special dubraes, and some military regalia around the backside. Take a look in our gallery after the jump and let us know what you think of the Air Jordan V ‘Desert Storm’ in the comments.
