The team at PMK Customs continues to bring the reconstruction side of customizing to new heights using another base we’ve probably never seen before. In fact let’s just say the 1300 has never been fully reconstructed, definitely not in this way. New Balance themselves has made some small waves in the sneakerhead scene but to the general public and new crop of sneakerheads NB is still your grandpa’s brand.
This custom by PMK goes away from the grandfatherly look of gray suede into a somewhat still grandpa look but cool granddad. The entire upper is made of exotic animal skins starting with alligator on the majority of the upper while python was used on the inner sections and tongue, and heel tab. Do you like the combined animal skin look or is one just enough?
This is surely a 1 of 1 but you can contact PMK via their site: www.PMKcustoms.com and follow them on Instagram: @PMKcustoms
