A complete list would have to be looked through but this surely could be a front runner for custom sneaker of the year. Something could be said about Kanye West here with how often he wears the Air Jordan III and history of red leather clothing, but this custom is some sort of 360 degree circle. EmmanueLabor’s customer wanted something inspired by the recent Supreme Nike Dunk SB release but a more “exorbitant feel”. How are these bringing the AJ3 and Supreme Dunk full circle?
This Air Jordan III shoe is the original inspiration of the Nike Supreme Dunk that saw a new take in 2012 which inspired this custom by emmanueLabor. A decon-recon this custom gives a new placement of elephant print to the upper ankle area and as seen on the True Blue AJ III on the lace panel area. Next the majority upper panel and tongues was remade with fire red genuine python skin. For the comfort factor the sockliners and insoles were remade with soft black lambskin. EmmanueLabor also stepped up the branding on these with new black metal EL lace dubrets/lace locks, EL cutouts on the insoles, and an embroidered bag. A complete package.
EmmanueLabor said himself these were hard to ship to the customer, so it is a slim chance the design is being offered to be remade. Either way checkout his info here: Twitter and Instagram: @emmanueLabor, Tumblr: http://laborpanes.tumblr.com/ and website: www.EmmanueLabor.com
