Remember the days when custom sneakers mostly meant Dunks, Air Force 1s, canvas Vans and Chuck Taylors? If not then you probably stumbled across custom sneakers pretty recently as the modern technical basketball shoe seems to be THE base of choice the past year and a half. High price or not the top Nike basketball sneakers for court action have gotten the casual custom treatment high and low. The elder statesmen Kobe hasn’t seen his kicks get all the attention of say Lebrons but he has one here and there. The most recent is a “Deep Space” theme customization on the Nike Kobe VII by JustBeast Customs. What started out as the white/black/concord colorway has been given a galaxy print painted across its previously white upper. Next the tongue mesh was painted black to match the Swoosh accents. Last details of glow in the dark was added to the star graphics and a la the animal themed Kobe VII JustBeast added a spaceship silhouette on the back heel in reflective 3M Scotchlite.
As of now these are a 1 of 1 design but feel free to contact JustBeast for your own customization via his site: www.JustBeastCustoms.com and follow him on Twitter: @JustBeast23 and Instagram: @JustBeast23
