Cole Haan x fragment design Lunargrand Saddle “Knicks” Customs by Revive Customs

Evan of Revive Customs got on Spike Lee‘s radar back in February 2013 with the release of the Nike Air Revolution “Radio Raheem” customs, inspired by a character in Spike’s film, Do The Right Thing. Soon after, he collaborated with Cole Haan on a pair of Lunargrand Wingtips that honored the history of the brand. Now, the trifecta is complete.

To celebrate the #1 Knicks fan’s birthday, we have the Cole Haan x fragment design Lunargrand Saddle “Knicks” Customs by Revive Customs. This time using the “Cole Haan & fragment design LunarGrand Saddle” as a base, Evan painted this New York Knicks inspired pair with a colorway

Cole Haan x Revive Customs LunarGrand Wingtip


If you thought customs were only for sneakers, think again. Revive Customs is making major moves with this sample art piece for Cole Haan. For those unfamiliar, Cole Haan is a fashion label founded in Chicago as a men’s footwear company. The company has since expanded into apparel, women’s footwear, belts, handbags, and various other high quality goods. Using the stylish leather LunarGrand Wingtip as a base, Evan of Revive Customs crafted this pair to pay homage to the brand’s history. “1928” on the vamps signify the year that the company was founded, and the numbers were painted onto cows that represent the high quality leather Cole Haan uses in their footwear. The designs seen covering the majority of the shoes, as well as the phrase “especially made for Cole Haan” on the heels, were inspired by shoe dressing boxes of the 1900s and other vintage accoutrements, a balanced marriage of old and new.

Nike Air “Spurs” Unlimited by Jai Cruz of Revive Customs


Revive Customs has been expanding their company as of late. Jai Cruz is now the head of the Revive Restorations department and is making his official debut with this restoration/sole swap of a pair of 1994 Nike Air Unlimiteds. Jai swapped the old soles and replaced them with fresh ones from a pair of Emerald Nike Air Force 180s. Jai used the Deep Emerald hits of the shoe as inspiration and painted the uppers with the vintage logo of the San Antonio Spurs, three horizontal “paint swipes” of emerald, bright pink, and mango that signified the vibrant personality of the city and honored the strong Mexican/Chicano population.

Nike Lebron X “Tommy Boy” by Revive Customs


When Evan of Revive Customs is not painting, you can probably find him around Brooklyn, digging in crates to find the perfect vinyl for his collection. He loves music almost as much as he loves sneakers and a glimpse at his eclectic mix of records verifies that. Somewhere amongst Issac Hayes’ “Hot Buttered Soul,” The Chamber Brothers “New Generation,” and Quincy Jones’ “Walking In Space” lies the inspiration for this pair.

Lebron James X The Price is Right Shoes by Revive Customs

Bob Barker would be proud of these Price is Right themed Nike Lebron Xs by Revive Customs. Colors seen on the show: green, orange, yellow and red were chosen via NikeID by Evan of Revive Customs whose next step in creating this custom was painting subtle touches to represent the popular daytime television game show. Starting with the back heel triangles the famous Plinko Chip featuring the $ sign logo was added with a gold glitter background. Next features of The Big Wheel were painted with the $ sign pattern in light green across the upper with the red arrow on the toe box in red glitter. Lastly SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN and the Revive logo on the back heels, green stars throughout, and glitter on the Lebron logo tongue pull tabs finish off these kicks perfect for if your name was called to come on down!

Nike Command Force “McFly” Custom by Peculiar Kinetics

After releasing last year the Nike Mags influence in the custom sneaker world has been such that it will surely continue into the future. The latest custom sneaker take to mirror the Air Mags futuristic look is this collaborative effort custom  Nike Command Force by Jonathan Carrington of Peculiar Studios. With the help of Revive Customs, PK had a pair of vintage Nike Command Forces saved with a sole swap from a pair of Air Force 180 retros. Next the Mags signature light up soles were actually setup by myself under my custom sneaker brand Evolved-Footwear. With the revived kicks now light up shoes Jonathan transformed the formerly white upper and neon midsoles to a gray upper, white Swooshes and with turquoise accents on the midsole speckle and tongue logos.

Air Jordan 4 “What the Fake” Custom by @ReviveCustoms

Give him a theme and Evan of Revive Customs will attack it. You may look at these with one eyebrow raised but their awesomeness is immeasurable. Known for his take on the What the…? theme of combining multiple shoes’ memorable patterns on one Evan decided to poke fun at the bootleg sneaker with this What the Fake Air Jordan IV custom.

The previously all white AJ 4 now features at a slew of patterns with at least 20 different hand painted colors. Featured are hand painted mocks of patterns seen on fake Nikes over the past 5 to 10 years: rainbow LV pattern, SpongeBob Squarepants, Big Pun Air logo, Jor1 $ signs, Hello Kitty, stars and stripes, and random colors.
