With the rise of popularity in custom sneakers comes added recognition from sneakerheads that have a little extra money to throw around. Jordan Retros will run you nearly $200 these days, but if you have your paper right, you can get them custom-made – like these Air Jordan IV ‘Python’ customs that were made for Jets superstar Darrelle Revis. These crafty IVs, commissioned by Revis’s manager John Geiger as a Christmas gift to his good friend and client, were made by JBF Customs, who, throughout all of his projects seen on Sneaker News, relied once again on incredible materials and details rather than a simple colorway change.

JBF has switched up and offered a couple of adidas Pro Model customs of late, but this veteran handcrafter has always been known for his favorite silo.  JBF’s latest custom Nike Blazer is a military-inspired waterproof nylon camouflage design whose rolled-edge construction gives them a factory quality look (a very difficult task for a complete reconstruction like this).  Details like M16 leather patches, engraved hangtags and a lambskin sockliner give these a premium feel, so have a closer look below and let us know where these rank in JBF’s growing catalog.

adidas Pro Model Hi ‘Pendleton’ Customs by JBF

adidas pro model hi pendleton customs by jbf 1 adidas Pro Model Hi Pendleton Customs by JBF

Sneaker customizer JBF is known for his specialty the Nike Blazer (and to a lesser extent, the Dunk Low), but his latest output proves it’s not just the Swoosh’s classic basketball models with which he can work that unique brand of magic.  Quite to the contrary, as we see his latest emanate from two other brands with headquarters in Oregon, one of whom happens to be Nike’s biggest competitor.  The adidas Pro Model High ‘Pendleton’ applies a vibrant woolen print from one of America’s heritage brands to the Blazer-like Pro Model silhouette for one of the most pleasing if understated customs we’ve seen in recent memory.  Longtime Sneaker News readers might remember The Shoe Surgeon’s ‘Pendleton’ Skytop III, and if so, you can’t help but notice the connection between models either originally created as or inspired by old school basketball sneakers, seem like the best ‘canvases’ for Pendleton’s wool products (remember their ACG Blazer and Valenki from late 2008?).  Check these out in greater detail below and let us know how they rank against the still-advancing custom sneaker market.

nike blazer mid jet life ii 11 Nike Blazer Mid Jet Life II Customs By JBF

One year ago today, sneaker customizer JBF whipped up one of the most popular custom sneakers of the year in the ‘Jet Life’ Blazer Mid; playing off of Curren$y’s ‘Jet Life’ track, the shoe really took off because due to the New York Jets’ playoff run that was stopped short at the AFC Championship Game. Unfortunately, the Jets are in complete disarray, but JBFs part deux of his Jet Life customs are still worth a look; the design is roughly the same, but now the heel logo features real Raw Rolling Papers, the tongue now reads ‘Jets Fool’, and the inner tongue label, well, you can see for yourself. Just 12 pairs will be made so act fast because they were certainly a hot item when the original first dropped, so check out the detailed gallery below and head to JBF’s online shop to get yours.
