Michael Jackson themed customs continue on. The third installment of SBTG’s Varsity Bones concept is an authentic tribute to Michael Jackson and the Thriller video. Using a Nike Blazer SBTG recreated the famous red slick leather jacket with zippers, patches, and all in shoe form. Additions to the shoes also include the Varsity Bones lace locks and removable zipper shoe lace covers. The design is nearly unrecognizable as an original Nike product as all Nike logos are not visible. That brings up an interesting question as I have always heard that Nike has a certain feeling about customs in which the Swoosh significantly altered or in this case unable to be seen. Here is more from SBTG himself:
The Thriller MV brought about an unprecedented progression in music video production. It was 14 minutes of sheer genius that set the benchmark. SBTG felt the same and decided to replicate that same desire to transcend and in honor to the man, they to…ok that iconic red jacket from the video and moulded it into this pair. You know it’s evil the evil Thriller. Don’t resist.
