There is something to be said about the world’s most premier athlete of the world’s premier athletic company getting his own premier signature shoe customized in a 1 of 1 design by someone completely unrelated to the brand, right? This pair of shoes has to be significant, correct? Lebron James has access to whatever he wants at Nike we can assume. So is the answer that Dank Customs is THE premier sneaker customizer?
What started as the much more than plain Nike Lebron X P.S. Elite+ in the white/metallic gold-black colorway is now a tribute to King James’ back to back NBA Championship wins. Jake of Dank Customs started off by changing all white mesh areas to match the tongues black mesh. Next up was the gold outlining upon the white Hyperfuse upper with a red stroke line around the edges and already golden Swooshes. For a match to the clear soles embedded with metallic gold glitter the entire midsole areas were given the same look. A look from behind shows a small MVP and CHAMP across the back heels. Because details are the name of the serious game when it comes to customizing Dank sought out a few helping hands from laser engraving help of Absolelute for the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy tongue emblems and on the oh so clean custom wood shoebox made by Fred of Secret Garden Woodworks along with Kelly of All Star Caps for the graphic help.
As with all Jake Danklefs’ custom work this pair for their namesake are another Dank one off. Thanks to @KingJames’ shoutout pictured below the waiting list line for a Dank Custom commission probably doubled overnight. Check more work and contact Jake at: www.JWDanklefs.com
