jbf customs venetto cork air jordan

With teasers hitting the Internet last week it was our duty to bring an inside scoop on this interesting work by JBF Customs. The project is in fact a collaborative design effort between Jake of JBF Customs and @RegularOlTy of Leaders1354. The latest in JBF’s line of reconstructed custom sneakers these truly represents “premium” starting with a thick burgundy leather used on the toes, lace, and heel panels. The next obvious material is cork placed from the toe box, mid panels, Swooshes, tongues and upper heels.

Air Jordan 3 “Cork” by District Customs

The Nike Lebron 10 Cork was one of the most anticipated sneakers we’ve seen in a while and naturally that translates into inspiration for sneaker customizers. The most recent artist to tackle the Cork theme is District Customs with this pair of Air Jordan 3s. Taking the White Cement 3 as a base, District Customs spent 60 long hours engraving and painting the tumbled leather upper to resemble the porous cork material. The tongue, liner and mudguard feature a deep brown while the tongue liner has been dyed a wine-tone, continuing with the classy theme.  DC also included reversible cork/gold dubres, designer wooden  shoetrees, custom hand tags, and a custom engraved wooden slide box with a golden plate and leather strap.
