Sharp020: Custom Nike Air Jordan 1 Carbon Fiber

Last week I posted up a Nike Dunk low by Florida based shoe customizer Sharp020. Once again Sharp020, who exclusively works with “decon-recon” custom shoes created a design based on his original project concept with but this time on a Nike Air Jordan 1. Sharp020 came back with the kelly green accents and sun burst mid panels but for the first time he used a real suede as opposed to the sythetic suede he used on his shoes before. As if the suede was not enough, carbon fiber textured material was used to give the back uppers a bit more detail to go with the contrasted green stitching against black and silver panels. The end result is a super sleek futuristic look at one of the most classic timeless sneakers of all time, something the original company Nike Jordan Brand has trouble creating. Good work Sharp020. (hands clapping)

Sharp020: NikeSkateboarding.Org Custom Nike Dunk Mint

This custom by Sharp020 from December definitely put the stamp on 2009 as the year of the “decon-recon” custom shoe. Florida based shoe customizer Sharp020 has created a few pairs like this now, based on the original concept he released with unofficial Nike SB fan site: Unlike kelly green he used before he used a mint green to go with the black and silver. These look to be some of the best of the theme: a Nike Dunk with 3m reflective Schotchlite on the toe and lace panels, black patent leather swooshes, sun burst mid panels, black suede, and mint green accents: splattered midsole and quilted liner. Topped off with the clean Sharp020 heel tabs and tongue tags.

Sharp020: Denim and Gold Puma Basket

Sneaker customizer Sharp020 out of Florida is calling these a platform for a couple little experiments. Hmmm, what else could Sharp020 have up his sleeve? Of course check back here to see the latest or his site. But as the circle of “decon-recon” customizers is slowly growing by the days so are the crazy designs they coming up with.  Though along those lines of moving forward a bit of simplicity is always nice to see. I guess you could call these simple at least by today’s standards, three years ago these would have been blowing peoples minds.

As for inspiration Sharp020 told us he really wanted a black and gold shoe and a denim shoe both added to his rotation. He used a Puma Suede low top as the base since the Puma Basket high top is pretty much out of production. To make the pattern he used a Puma Basket high top that he had to order from Singapore, so if you want a Puma Basket custom Sharp020 is your guy as he can now make a pair out of nearly endless fabrics using those patterns. The most interesting part of this pair is the fact that the vinyl is vintage from around the 1950s. I imagine its quality is extremely better than something you’d purchase made this year. Hmmm, again I’d can imagine some pretty killer customs made using some vintage fabrics.
