The Nike SB Dunk High “SOMP” from Nigel Sylvester is back, sort of. This time around the sneakers have been rebuilt on behalf of JBF Customs, who has done these sort of luxurious remixes for no small number of big time customers. His take on the Nike SB Dunk High in question remains true to the original in terms of colorblocking if not materials. In place of the black nubuck/suede upper on the retail release is a one-off combination of python and ostrich skin. Take at at the handiwork of JBF below and get in touch with him for inquiries.

Though not exactly an ‘original’ colorway, DJ Clark Kent‘s ’112′ motif was brought to life when he was given the great opportunity to colorize a ‘Ones’ Pack, which featured the Air Force 1, Air Max 1, and Air Trainer 1 in a mind-boggling colorway of Grey/Neon with bountiful portions of elephant print and 3M reflective material. It’s one of those dream colorways that sneakerheads can only wish for, but Clark, a sneakerhead himself, made one for the people and created an instant classic. The LeBron 8′s been one of Clark’s favorites (at least he’s showing them off the most), and his Nike LeBron 8 ’112′ made some noteworthy headlines here on Sneaker News when it was first broadcast earlier this week. Now we know that Queens-native BMX-rider Nigel Sylvester owns a pair, because Clark himself gave him his own last night during Sylvester’s G-Shock party. Check out the extra shot of this sick new colorway below and let us know if this is the best ’112′ sneaker to date. via NT.
