Milwaukee, Wisconsin based shoe customizer Chris Hui better known as C2 Customs completed his first ever custom Nike Air Force 1 high for CounterKicks.com. The result is what happens when two entities near the top of their respective fields come together: C2 being custom sneakers and CounterKicks being sneaker information blog. PaintOrThread has been following the relatively young CounterKicks.com since they started last fall and we’ve be nothing but impressed by some of the interviews and detailed articles they have about all the different materials shoes are made of. They’ve even started a partnership with SLAM Magazine.
C2 decided to take a “stealth” like approach to play on the “counter-intelligence” theme of CounterKicks.com. The end result is a high contrast half white half black shoe with great attention to detail. Black carbon fiber was used to create new Swooshes and compliment C2’s use of woodland camoflague in a dark, stealth black and gray sequence. To stay true to classic C2 designs he added a super bright yellow around the tongue, Nike Air heel tab, and the CounterKicks text and signature “Suitman” logo on the tongues. Loving the black and yellow, toss in some royal blue and these are golden.
