The jumps a few recon sneaker customizers have made in the past year have been huge. Moving away from the classic silhouettes of a Dunk or Air Force 1 to more technical sneakers. One who is steadily rising ahead of the pack of sneaker customizers in general is that of JBF Customs. His latest resume builder is a complete reconstruction of an adidas Crazy 8 retro for one of their signature athletes, Iman Shumpert of the NY Knicks.
What started out as a gray leather base as seen below was taken apart and rebuilt with three different authentic snakeskins. The entire upper from the toes to tongue feature two contrasting gray skins with a brown and white on the back heels. The incredible outside texture is topped with a comfy lambskin sockliner and thick black leather tongue tags laser engraved with JBF branding. As JBF’s slogan is +INCOMPARABLE+, there really aren’t many that could match this effort right now.
Unfortunately for you this adidas Crazy 8 “Python” is a 1 of 1 but stay up with more future releases by JBF via www.JBFCustoms.com and on Twitter: @JBFcustoms. If you aren’t already be sure to follow @PaintOrThread for the latest in custom sneaker insight.
