This might be the closest thing to a gold-dipped Air Jordan we’ve ever seen, but there’s no surprise that it’s a custom, right? This latest banger from El Cappy reconstitutes ‘Golden Moment‘ (with an emphasis on gold) for a tonal upper and black contrast for a Premio-like level of luxury. The laces have been replaced with a shimmering golden rope, and the midsole ‘peaks’ have been switched to a solid gold as well to complete the exquisite nature of a true gold-dipped shoe, leaving us to wonder if maybe this type of design should’ve been the true ‘Golden Moment’ release. According to El Cappy, these were a custom order for hip-hop act A$AP Rocky, which Cappy notes with the custom heel-badges. More of this amazing custom work below, so give it a look and let us know if you think this version is better than the Golden Moments release!
