How embarassing, looks like PaintOrThread is eating it’s own words right now as earlier today we tweeted: “Painting a shoe a new color or two hasn’t been newsworthy for at least two or three years.” Well this shoe on the surface wasn’t simply painted all red alone. That is the biggest change but it has a few details that make this latest from Dank Customs worth sharing. Yes, there has been a slew of Air Jordan retros covered in red paint after the “Red October” Yeezy II…but again those are all just covered in red(some blue) and their presentation is likely some awful shots posted to IG.
This Louis Vuitton Red Don looking Air Jordan IV is just the next custom influenced by a product with the name Kanye West behind it. The original all red LV Don has features recreated on this AJ IV with laser engraved plastic wings, midsole, and leather tongue tags with help from Absolelute. Next came the red paint and some fancy tassel laces. Simple, similar looking to a lot of overdone customs but the extra details that continue to separate Dank from the growing pack of “sneaker customizers”
