air jordan xi seinfeld 7 Air Jordan XI Seinfeld Customs by Rocket Boy Nift

In the sneaker custom scene, Rocket Boy Nift might have the most diverse collection of footwear canvases that he works with, switching back and forth between Air Jordan Retros and the Air Foamposites on a regular basis. For his latest work, he puts a focus on Seinfeld – a show known for its plots about “nothing” and also for the diverse sneaker game worn by the show’s headlining actor. For this Air Jordan XI “Seinfeld” custom, he takes a spin off of “nothing” and goes for a rather clean and simple approach, going with a tonal white upper with a solid black outsole and a green inner lining, combining details from the Air Jordan VI “Motorsports” and Air Jordan V “Quai 54″. We’ve got a detailed gallery below so take a look below and let us know what you think!

Air Jordan V “Winnipeg” Customs by Rocket Boy Nift

March 18th, 2013 by | 10 comments

air jordan v winnie customs Air Jordan V Winnipeg Customs by Rocket Boy Nift

Believe it or not, the Air Jordan V custom on display here is actually inspired by Winnie-the-Pooh. The backstory is a little bit more complicated than that though-the sneaker points to the black bear by the name of Winnie that was used as the initial inspiration for said fictional bear, a creature nicknamed after the Canadian city of Manitoba. The look in place is far from cartoony though, as creator Rocket Boy Nift puts in some serious work between the embroidered black bear patches on back and the detailed markings etched into the leather upper. Check out the Air Jordan V “Winnipeg” customs after the jump and purchase them now from niftnif1990 on eBay.
