What do Air Jordans and Freddy Krueger have in common? If you fall asleep, you’re either gonna die a grisly death, or miss out on the morning sneaker release. Since its introduction on the SB Dunk Low sample a few years back, the ‘Freddy Krueger’ outfit has been a popular (yet difficult) concept for custom shoes, and while we’ve seen Freddy make its way on an Air Jordan VI before, those who know how Krueger operates understand that the sadistic killer likes to take on multiple forms. DeJesus hits us with another sneaker custom in the Air Jordan V that he calls ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’, using Krueger’s deformed skin and burnt garments as the key details for this custom. Even the Jumpman has been overtaken by Freddy (although credit should go to El Cappy for doing it first)! Check out this scary Air Jordan V custom project below, and let us know if you think this is better than the Air Jordan VI version!
