The High Life Air Jordan IV Custom Shoes by SmoothTip


Share post:

With a quick glance one can tell these probably have nothing to do with the Miller High Life. Though titled with an equivalent name, these “The High Life” custom painted Air Jordan IV’s by SmoothTip are…up there. Up where? Well, who knows? The name and design concept is actually a continuation of a pair of Nike Dunks SmoothTip customized a while back that were a bright complementing clash of splatter and fading stripes in neon blue, green, orange, and yellow.

This time though the AJ 4 is a bit less loud(perhaps, slightly) with a gray on gray cheetah print, black toes, lime green midsoles, baby blue netting, and a rather devilish red and black spike graphic that starts on the heels and continues down the tongues. Nope these are preeeetty loud. But it’s not until after daylight that the shouting is really heard from a bright green glow-in-the-dark effect around the Jumpman heel tabs and along the midsoles. What started out as the heavenly all white Air Jordan IV Pure$ is now exclaiming “the high life!” all day and night.

  1. […] What exactly is ‘The High Life’? These clearly have no bearing on the beer of the similar name, but SmoothTip, the creator of this funky custom, gives his spin on the finer things of life with use of Glow-In-The-Dark, leopard prints, and other luxurious hints, and using the Air Jordan IV ‘Silver Anniversary’ as an advantage with the chromed out lace-wings. These are absolutely one of the louder, funkier, and thought-inspiring customs we’ve seen, so take a look at the extra angles below and let us know what you think. via paintorthread […]
