Knock three off the list: Air Jordan VI, Nike Dunk High, Nike LeBron 8. For the next category of custom sneakers, we’re diverting back to Nike Sportswear classics, and in this case, the most iconic Nike Basketball shoe in history. The classic white-on-white Air Force 1 became a popular custom-sneaker canvas, as painting the faces of some notable figures (anywhere from Barack Obama to Spongebob Squarepants) or even fashioning the swooshes and uppers with faux-luxury print from high-end European design houses became a common method of customization. The timeless nature of the Air Force 1 will forever make it a relevant shoe, and these eight different Air Force 1 customs depict the wide range of custom concepts over 28 years of existence, so take a look at the Nike Air Force 1 customs after the jump and vote for your favorite at the very end!

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 MID ‘HOMER SIMPSON’

Designed by: Pimp My Kicks

Homer Simpson is long regarded as one of the greatest television characters in history, and Pimp My Kicks paid homage to the worlds laziest father by painting the upper in cartoon style and using Homer-specific details like his precious locks of hair and his favorite pastry dessert. We’ll leave you with one of Homer’s greatest quotes: “A bee bit my bottom, and now my bottom is big.”

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW ‘808s & HEARTBREAK’

Nike Air Force 1 Custom - Kanye West - 808s & Heartbreak

Designed by: MACHE

Kanye West has a unique influence to the sneaker game, which culminated in Nike’s production and release of an actual Kanye West shoe (called the Air Yeezy). Before the release of the Yeezy, sneaker customizer MACHE fashioned these Air Force 1 Lows inspired by the album artwork from Kanye’s 808s & Heartbreak album, which uses a tweed material similar to Kanye’s suit and the funky artwork in the background on the heel and swoosh.
