Sneaker customizer (and we use that term somewhat loosely) Freehand Profit has made a name for himself with gasmask versions of popular kicks since we first saw his take on the Air Jordan 1 last April.  His latest might be the most obscure design employed to date, the Mighty Crown x Nike Sky Force 88 Lows that commemorated the Japanese sound system’s 20th anniversary last fall.  Like the Dunk Highs that accompanied them, Mighty Crown’s Sky Forces were a rich amalgamation of textures, and this mask’s silvery build is all the better for it.  Check out more photos below, let us know how these compare to standouts like the Swoosh-browed ‘Galaxy’ Dunk mask and stick with Sneaker News for all the best new customs.

nike mighty crown qs nikestore 05 Mighty Crown x Nike Dunk High + Sky Force 88 Low   Releasing @ Nikestore

Nike Sportswear collaborations are very few and very far in-between these days, with most of the collaborative releases being a renewed partnership rather than a fresh coupling. Japan’s Mighty Crown isn’t a newbie when it comes to NSW collabs, and for the Holiday 2011 season, Nike Retro fans were in for a real treat when the East Asian music house was selected once again to design their own kicks – the Nike Dunk High and recently re-inserted Nike Sky Force ’88 Low. What’s the opposite of subtle? These bad boys, which clearly don’t shy away from intense materials and combinations, like elephant print, croc-skin, and ostrich. the Mighty Crown x Nike Sportswear releases have begun to pop up at select NSW boutiques ’round the globe, but those limited releases are likely gone by now. Fortunately, Nikestore will stock these babies tomorrow at midnight, so if you don’t want to miss out, check back with Nikestore tomorrow or cop a pair on eBay.

Japanese reggae crew Mighty Crown has never been shy about expressing its true colors, so if you think that either of the two collaborative releases are a bit ‘over the top’, just know that it’s Mighty Crown staying true to its own flavor. Officially dropping at select Nike Sportswear retailers worldwide is the Mighty Crown x Nike Sportswear Dunk High + Sky Force ’88 Low; the Dunk High has that ‘reverse’ appeal in which one shoe has that counterpoint effect on the other, with numerous materials like croc-skin, suede, leather, ostrich skin, woodgrain, elephant print, and more, and the Sky Force ’88 Low has its own jaw-dropping appeal with a metallic silver package utilizing generous portions of croc-skin print. Both pairs are finished off with Mighty Crown lace dubrae. Again, these are slated to release in October, so check out the official Nike Sportswear images and stay tuned for a release very soon.

If you were so busy camping out for seats to last night’s presidential debate that you didn’t have a chance to read through Sneaker News yesterday, you might have missed out on word that Nike Sportswear’s latest collaboration with Japan’s Mighty Crown sound system crew has expanded to a full-on pack in celebration of the group’s 20th anniversary.  Joining the Mighty Crown x Nike Dunk High Premium whose release info we shared with you is a new Sky Force ’88 Low Quickstrike, both of which are hitting retail a bit earlier than we expected.  That’s true overseas, anyway, where this black and grey duo is going to hit shelves in Japan starting this Sunday, September 25th.  Previous information had these releasing about three weeks later on October 14th; are these two texture-heavy tonal designs worth stamping your passport to get a bit sooner?  Have a closer look at more images after the jump, let us know what you think and stick with Sneaker News for updates on their US availability. via hayabusa.

Mighty Crown x Nike Dunk High Premium – Release Info

IMG 5482 copy1 Mighty Crown x Nike Dunk High Premium   Release Info

Creating a great pair of tonal shoes can go a variety of ways within a relatively small range of colors, everything from simple monochromatic looks with cotton laces to something filled with a sampler of shades plus some neutral tones for balance.  The further you go to the second side of that scale, the more important it is to utilize textural contrast to make the shoe more than just a color study, and Mighty Crown might have just set the record for the most different materials used for a single color.  Their new Nike Dunk High Premium has as many different ways of showing the color black as parts spread across the two shoes in each pair, the end result looking like the AF1 Bespoke material samples ring tossed in a blender with black dye.  It’s totally crazy and yet absolutely serviceable as an all-black standby, certainly one of the more intriguing candidates for sleeper hit of 2011.  Click through to see more angles and expect these at top-tier Nike Sportswear accounts on October 14th.

Mighty Crown x Nike Sky Force ’88 Low LTR QS

Aside from the obligatory Bob Marley incense sold at pretty much every shopping mall, it’s not all that common to see a reggae act collaborate with commercial products.  But that’s not the case for arguably the most successful non-Jamaican sound system in the entire world, Japan’s Mighty Crown.  Going on twenty years of doing all kinds of delightful things with dub plates, Mighty Crown has already shown us a Dunk High Premium on the way in celebration of their two decades, but that clearly wasn’t all they have in the works with Nike Sportswear.  This new Mighty Crown x Nike Sky Force 88 Low Quickstrike is considerably quieter than the Dunks when it comes to sheer number of textures, but a macro snake skin print on the combination of glossy patent leather and reflective 3M makes for one heckuva standout shoe in its own right.  Click through to see more images and stick with Sneaker News for the exact release date of this October drop.  via Warped
