How good is your knowledge of ancient sewing machines? If you’re up on your history in that realm then you don’t need an explanation, but if not then follow us here: the adidas Rivalry Lo ‘Red Eye’ gets its name and ornate patterning from the Singer 66 model of the same name.

Air Jordan IV “What The Fake” Customs by Revive

“Did I Do Thaaaat…?”

Only 80′s babies will understand that above reference to the time when “TGIF” meant sitting in front of the TV screen and not causing trouble with friends. Television has changed considerably since the peak of TGIF’s line-up of shows, and the same goes for the sneaker game; the reception to kicks has broadened to incredible dimensions that a once-maligned hobby – customizing kicks – is now one of trendiest aspects of the culture. Just a few years ago, custom kicks were often mistaken for counterfeits, particularly during a time when Louis Vuitton/Burberry-print Air Force 1s, Spongebob Squarepants Dub Zeros, and the infamous Big Pun ‘Jumpman’ joints swam around shady sneaker channels and were up for sale on Canal St. (the epicenter of all-things-variant).

Revive Customs, who has impeccably captured the ‘What The’ essence, hits us with a ‘What The Fake’ custom Air Jordan, calling out to days when counterfeit kicks ran amok while teetering on the sensitive line that separates fake from custom. Revive’s been doing the custom thing for a while (you might even remember his Air Force 1 ‘Canal St.’customs), so he understands firsthand how a pair of re-painted kicks could be confused with a fake, but as we mentioned before, things have changed indeed. Louis Vuitton, Spongebob, Big Pun, and even Steve Urkel’s face done ‘Mars Blackmon’ style make cameo appearances on this latest ‘What The’ custom, so check out the images below and give us your personal ‘fake sneaker’ story that you just can’t forget!

We’ve seen sneakers get a horror inspired makeover plenty of times before, with Freddy Krueger being a frequent muse in that realm. Leaning more towards the campy side is this Nike Air Foamposite Pro ‘Evil Dead’ custom, calling upon that classic slasher flick with its gory graphics. Along with the blood splatters and “Evil Dead” hit across the back, the sneaker slides in a crazy chainsaw gear look around the carbon fiber plate as a tribute to main character Ash’s weapon of choice.

Reebok Alien Stomper “Ripley” Customs by Revive

reebok alien stomper ridley customs by revive Reebok Alien Stomper Ripley Customs by Revive

Revive‘s latest custom remixed the New Balance 1500 into a Technics transformer, and though his latest is an entirely different kind of reference, it does indeed hearken back to the foundations of hip-hop.  Just as rap and punk genres rose in the late ’70s, a hippie-rejecting aggression was channeled into a new breed of intense action films, few of which stood out more at the time than Ridley Scott’s Alien franchise.  The sequel featured the Power Loader exoskeleton that’s been made into one of this year’s most meme-worthy Halloween costumes, and inside, protagonist Ellen Ripley in her Reebok Alien Stompers.  The most famous sneakers made just for a film until Marty McFly’s Nike Air Mag came along three years later, the RBK Stomper has been treated to the original Weyland look we remember from 1986.  Have a look for yourself below, and if you happen to be a size 11.5, you’re in luck with just one pair available.
