Repping for his home town team, Sab One made a pair of Air Jordans showcasing the Boston Celtics‘ decades of heritage. While there may have been some down years in those decades the only team that almost matches them are their rivals, we don’t even need to say who. You should know. But with 17 NBA Championships from 1957 to 2008 you have quite a list of greats. Surely fans of different decades would disagree on whose the best. Those mentioned on this pair of customs is a good start.
This previously all white and blue Air Jordan VI retro now looks as if Jordan was actually some guy who played for the Celtics. But Jordans aura surpassed individual teams to become a sneaker staple. So we’ll give whoever is a Celtic’s fan a pass for wearing a rival player’s sneaker, because these are all C’s. Starting with the application of one of sports most detailed logos on the back heels. Instead of sticking to green and a logo Sab One took it another level for his client taking the years, players and coaches of the Celtics’ 17 champion caliber seasons to the uppers in a glossy finish over the matte background. After all that hand and stencil painting the midsoles got the iconic parquet paneled court details. All that’s needed now is another championship to continue the Celtics lineage of NBA greatness.
