Another orange custom sneaker from Dank Customs in less than a week is okay. The degrees of inspiration on this pair titled Old Skool X New Skool is about 2 over at least 20 years. Starting again with a great base shoe Jake of Dank Customs used the recently released all orange Air Max 1 with a white midsole. No major changes were made to the upper but the added details are seen with a few spots of nice textured engraved elephant print along with matching shoelaces. Next that striped midsole may look familiar as the concept was taken from a Nike Trainer 1 which was taken from the now old school Nike boxes. The classic shoeboxes were adorned with a bright Nike orange lid while the bottom halves were a gray and gray striped. The last touch is the engraved Nike Swoosh painted white on the lateral mudguard that is a thing of the past on the Nike Air Max 1 model. NOTE: Customizers THIS is how you should take your photos not in you kitchen, office, or with a piece of paper tagging your Twitter handles.
