Can you expect anything less than a complete custom box to go with the next El Cappy custom sneaker by Eric Lowry? After his Nike Mag Lebron 9 and this here Nike Blazer probably not. The theme is obvious with this pair of El Cappy customs influenced by 4/20 and the slow state by state legalization. Titled, Marihuana this SB Blazer was given an all new painted upper with varying green graphics on both sides and tongues. The base shoe were the Independent Trucks Nike Blazer which had orange accents that went perfect with the rest of El Cappy’s concept of a shoebox modeled after a Zig Zag Cigarette Papers box. Final EL Cappy branding on the custom engraved tongue tags and lace dubrets finish off the 1 of 1 custom.
Only hours after Dan of Mache Customs posted his latest Nike Lebron X customs via his Instagram did @KingJames himself repost them. The idea that caught Lebron James’ attention was the Transformers Devastator themed pair in metallic green and purple. For the most part this was a simple customization as Mache used the options on Nike ID to create the pefect base of green and purple. His touch was the silver panelling painted to look like steel panels that were also given a reflective finish. The colorway was brought together with a simple Decepticon branding on the back heel triangles and embroidered logos on the tongue tags courtesy of @HerbJuice.
The Nike Lebron 8 South Beach is officially 2 years old this month. A way to measure the impact that colorway had on the custom sneaker game does not exist but it surely became the elephant print of 2011 to early 2012 with many a customizers taking the colorway to other shoes. A big impact of that is because customers loved the colorway themselves.
