What DOES love got to do with it? Everything, right? The theme of love, summer love that is, comes back around again from Ecentrik Artistry for 2013. Previous Summer Love collection of custom sneakers from EA were on Nike models like Air Force 1s and Air Max 90s. This time the oh so popular Air Jordan V catches the love bug. Using two recent retros of the AJ V in white/black/red and “Grape” Ecentrik created a whole new look for the shoe.
The midsoles of the white/black/red pair titled Tropical Sun were untouched while it’s paint job mimics the bright yellow Sun in the corner. Across their upper the look of a hot sunset was created with a pink and orange hand painted fade on the upper. Bright yellow netting and eyelets match the sun. While the first pair was not completely altered the look of the Grape V is practically unrecognizable in this colorway titled Sandy Beach from the midsole being given a sand and turquoise colorway combo. A pale blue to yellow fading finish on the upper stands out against a previously purple tongue that has been dyed black. If PaintOrThread had to choose between the two Sandy Beach would be the winner.
Accompanied by a custom matching t-shirt each of these Summer Love customs are limited to 10 pairs available in mens, womens, and gs sizes June 1st 2013, via EcentrikArt.net Be sure to follow EA on on Twitter @EcentrikShoeArt and Instagram: @EcentrikArtistry
