Nike Kobe VII “Deep Space” by JustBeast Customs

Remember the days when custom sneakers mostly meant Dunks, Air Force 1s, canvas Vans and Chuck Taylors? If not then you probably stumbled across custom sneakers pretty recently as the modern technical basketball shoe seems to be THE base of choice the past year and a half. High price or not the top Nike basketball sneakers for court action have gotten the casual custom treatment high and low. The elder statesmen Kobe hasn’t seen his kicks get all the attention of say Lebrons but he has one here and there. The most recent is a “Deep Space” theme customization on the Nike Kobe VII by JustBeast Customs.

Nike Lebron X “Meteor Shower” Customs by @KickassoKustoms

One could say you can blame Nike, but the outer space theme is here to stay in custom sneakers. The last year has seen many attempts from great to poor in effort to recreate the galaxy print seen on the official Nike Foamposite All Star release of 2012. The concept has inspired some to get more specific with the cosmic look and the most recent is this “Meteor Shower” Nike Lebron X custom by Kickasso Kustoms. Using the “Prism” Lebron X as his base Kickasso gave the colorful accented design’s charcoal Hyperfuse upper an arrary of airbrushed painting.

Nike Foamposite Rainbow Galaxy Customs by TRAGIKkicks

Nike’s release of the Galaxy Nike Foamposite earlier this year did more than rile up sneakerheads, it gave shoe customizers the green light to use the Nike Foamposite as a base for more than solid colors. While the galaxy has been mimicked by many and successfully recreated by few TRAGIKkicks decided to spin the idea in another whole direction. Less outerspace and more Earth’s atmosphere with a rainbow influenced galaxy theme. At least seven colors were blended upon the Foamposite upper with specks of white intermittent against all black accents of the tongue, liner and soles. Do you think these make Nikes galaxy print look tame?
