Singaporean locals SBTG and DJ Inquisitive have teamed up to pay tribute to the King of Pop by producing a “Thriller” themed Converse All-Star Hi custom. Inspired by one of Michael Jackson’s biggest hits and most memorable music video, “Thriller,” the customs fit the motif of MJ’s attire in the video. Additionally, SBTG adds his latest design techniques of claw-rip detailing and a zippered tongue. Here’s what each of the collaborators had to personally say about the custom piece:

““MJ was the reason I got interested in music in the first place” – DJ Inquisitive

“When Leon first approached me to collaborate on a custom design, I searched for a theme to represent his passion in music. Then when the news suddenly broke about MJ’s tragic departure, I knew we would pay tribute to him since both of us grew up listening to him” – SBTG

It’s interesting to see Chuck Taylors being used for this work, as it is not necessarily a popular shoe to customize (especially for SBTG), but also there isn’t much known relevancy to MJ. Nonetheless, still dope! The customs will actually be unveiled this weekend on a Thriller Night at Singapore’s Butter Factory. For those who want their hands on these, they will also be available to order at Leftfoot. More details of the launch party and custom orders via StreetThing.
