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 womens and kids size sneakers don’t get nearly as much love in customizing as the mens sizes so a custom like this is always refreshing. What started out as the Easter colorway of the Nike Lebron X in a youth size was given a POW! of neon colors by Twizz Customs. The first addition is the painted midsoles featuring a purple to pink to green fade that wraps around the shoe with splattered paint throughout. The shapes painted on the upper take us back to the 90’s with a very Fresh Prince and comic book vibe color combination.
Kids apparel with alcohol brands all over it? Sounds like a PR nightmare. Fortunately the “Heineken” Dunk original shoes weren’t officially licensed in the first place when they released. @gordo__1 on Instagram decided to give their look in child Air Force 1 form painting an white on white toddler size with the memorable green and black upper.
