A good 8+ years ago this artist with a love for sneakers had the chance many sneaker customizers and general artists for that matter, will never get. In 2005 Josh Wisdumb was commissioned by New Balance to recreate is art on the silhouette of the New Blance 574. The black and white design featuring Wisdumb’s line work released in limited numbers apart of an NB artist series pops up on eBay every once and a while. If they don’t ring a bell check this old interview with Wisdumb from FreshnessMag.com.
Though a few years have passed Wisdumb has still found time to put his artistic eye to a pair of shoes here and there. The latest titled “AIRWISDUMB” takes the recently released all white Air Jordan 1 retro and sticks with their original colorway of red, white, and black. Starting with the heel and wings panels Josh painted them a classic AJ red. The next change was adding his signature line work that looks like a black and white electric charge of chaos across the toes, side panels and wrapping around the Swooshes with a finishing 2013 and JW on the back tabs.
