Chicago based shoe customizer ST!ZO put the essence of NYC in these custom New York State of Mind Nike Dunk SBs. A customer requested a shoe that reminded him of his younger days, his old stomping grounds, if you haven’t guessed it, the Big Apple, New York City, New York. Incorporating the “sights of the city along with the graffiti he loved most of all”, that graffiti that was birthed in NYC. After agreeing on the colorway of lime green, blue, and silver ST!ZO started painting with no planning and design straight from his mind. The end result is a extremely authentic NYC style graffiti on the toes, NYC night skyline across the mid panels, silver Swooshes, and I heart NYC tongue tag.
Once again ST!ZO is only giving us a preview to keep the fake factories from bootleggin his work. Darn, but the video below with the Nas track “NY State of Mind”, city scenes, and graffiti clips is still a good look.
