I mentioned back on the 20th of August about SBTG providing for sale his version of a Michael Jackson custom shoe tribute. Your chance has come to get that pair inspired by the famous Thriller video and red jacket Michael wore. Using a pair of Converse All Star Chuck Taylor high tops SBTG gave the sneakers his signature worn-grunged look with random threads, torn canvas and greased white rubber. Along with added rubber heel tabs over the ALL STAR rubber heel tabs, circular Thriller patches, lacelocks, skull pins, and zip up eyelets. More from SBTG’s site:
Saturday September 5th will be the Official launch of the first time ever collaboration with 3x DMC Champion INQUISITIVE at the Butter Factory In Singapore.
Our very own local boys, DJ Inquisitive and SBTG have come together and produced a very special limited-edition sneaker honoring the late and great Michael Jackson.
“MJ was the reason I got interested in music in the first place.” says DJ Inquisitive.
“When Leon first approached me to collaborate on a custom design, I searched for a theme to represent his passion in music. Then when the news suddenly broke about MJ’s tragic departure, I knew we would pay tribute to him since both of us grew up listening to him.” explains SBTG.
The “Thriller” custom converse is inspired by the legendary Thriller video and its theme of unleashing the beast within us, featuring SBTG’s new claw-rip design.
The shoe, inspired by the Thriller theme from Michael Jackson’s MTV – Thriller.
