One thing that pushes shoe customizers is the ability to experiment a new idea on their latest pair of shoes. Sometimes you run into walls such as Sharp020 did on this pair of street inspired custom Nike Court Tradition in cement gray and yellow. He was given the shoe over a year ago but came upon a problem as the shoe was made of hemp and was not taking to his usual deconstruction – reconstruction method. So he eventually had to cut the upper off the sole which I think in the end worked to the advantage of the chosen theme: street, pavement, cement, and just straight up abused. A full leather upper with a print that looks just like cement or pavement on your local sidewalk or street with huge cracks along different sections. The liner, Sharp020 logos along with the Swooshes are a orange-ish yellow that really pops. My favorite part is probably the Swooshes that appear to be a separate piece of leather but are actually seamlessly apart of the upper and only outlined by the yellow stitching. Again the obviously used sole brown with dirt fits the concept perfect.
