It’s always interesting when custom sneaker creators go the extra mile and imagine themselves as architects of entire collections rather than one-off appropriators of common themes. Zhijun Wang has pulled that off with this new set, which consists of a handful of lesser known Puma models. The group is split into the “Cheetah” and the “Camobium” sets, the latter being a personal pattern than Zhijun has made something of a trademark style via his work. Continue reading for a complete look at the two sets and get in touch with ZJ Design for inquiries.

The Duanwu Festival kicks off in China on Saturday, June 23rd, but it’s also known as the ‘Double Fifth’ for being the fifth day of the fifth month of the lunar calendar. This celebration of the approximate summer solstice is particularly relevant in this Year of the (Water) Dragon, and the New Balance HS77 custom job pictured above reflects both of those themes in addition to the evolution of a concept by one artist. Zhijun Wang‘s ‘Dragon Boat Festival’ HS77 follows up on his spectacular laser-etched Air Force 1 Lows with a red-accented watery look that adds scales and waves in honor of its muse. Have a closer look at them after the jump, let us know where these compare to the Wang’s YOTD AF1s and stick with Sneaker News for the best custom sneaker designs from around the world.

Nike Sportswear head Gentry Humphrey recently showed us that there’s another ‘Year of the Dragon’ Nike Air Force 1 Low on the way with a more vibrant colorway than January’s release, which means that earlier black silken drop ends up closer to the elegant if simple 30th anniversary pairs we’ve seen from the XXX ‘Pearl’ collection.  Sneaker customizer Zhijun Wang (author of the spectacular laser-etched edition) has also offered his own take on how to blend the YOTD and 30th anny themes, his new appropriately nicknamed AF1 Lows adding a bunch of golden detailing that represent the five elements and their place in Chinese lore.  Have another look at these after the jump and let us know how they compare to both this year’s Chinese Zodiac kicks and the other 30th anniversary Air Force 1s we’ve seen in 2012.
