The bar is set just a little bit higher this last day of October by JBF Customs. When it comes to working on base shoes of a certain resale value the past year has seen some Yeezy IIs and a few Nike Air Mags all of which arguably left a bit to be desired. But with this Red October Nike Air Yeezy 1 by JBF I don’t think anyone is arguing except maybe a few people with themselves for not being able to afford one of the 3 available for order.
Yes this former Net/Net colorway of the infamous Air Yeezy I has been reconstructed in the current hype colorway of the 2nd Yeezy: all red. What was $215 at retail in 2009 sells for $2000+ on eBay or listed at $3500 on FlightClub.com. Now JBF has thrown all sneakerheads for a loop by deconstructing the precious high top and reconstructing them with a base of python. 2 different prints of authentic python snakeskin were used with solid red upon the upper heels, tongue and toe box with a black and red for the mudguard and heel pull tabs. A glossy patent leather was used to remake the velcro straps and inlay of the lasered Swoosh cutouts. The pair gets completed with details on the tongues lasered Yeezy Horus logo circles (courtesy of @absolelute), crushed velvet lining, leather I Am A God insoles, brass eyelets, and a set of premium leather laces from Aglit Italy.
