While many it may seem the popular thing lately is to customize Air Jordans or Lebrons or Foamposites, Michael aka Custom Swaves continues to use the classic Nike Dunk high as his base shoe for custom sneakers. Though this was not his decision but a customers choice of a Dunk with a design based off the graphic of a Zippo lighter. Starting with the previously white and yellow Dunk high panels were painted green, black, purple and pink. That graphic just happened to be of a cartoony Voodoo Doll of black and bright colors of which Swaves made as the focal point hand painting it on the lateral back heel of the right shoe. While the opposite shoe has VOODOO painted in black along with pins that happened to get away from the doll scattered across the front and medial sides. Creepy and cheerful at the same time with those bright colors.
