SBTG: Varsity Bones 3 The Thriller Custom Nike Blazer

Michael Jackson themed customs continue on. The third installment of SBTG’s Varsity Bones concept is an authentic tribute to Michael Jackson and the Thriller video. Using a Nike Blazer SBTG recreated the famous red slick leather jacket with zippers, patches, and all in shoe form. Additions to the shoes also include the Varsity Bones lace locks and removable zipper shoe lace covers. The design is nearly unrecognizable as an original Nike product as all Nike logos are not visible. That brings up an interesting question as I have always heard that Nike has a certain feeling about customs in which the Swoosh significantly altered or in this case unable to be seen. Here is more from SBTG himself:

The Thriller MV brought about an unprecedented progression in music video production. It was 14 minutes of sheer genius that set the benchmark. SBTG felt the same and decided to replicate that same desire to transcend and in honor to the man, they to…ok that iconic red jacket from the video and moulded it into this pair. You know it’s evil the evil Thriller. Don’t resist.

I mentioned back on the 20th of August about SBTG providing for sale his version of a Michael Jackson custom shoe tribute. Your chance has come to get that pair inspired by the famous Thriller video and red jacket Michael wore. Using a pair of Converse All Star Chuck Taylor high tops SBTG gave the sneakers his signature worn-grunged look with random threads, torn canvas and greased white rubber. Along with added rubber heel tabs over the ALL STAR rubber heel tabs, circular Thriller patches, lacelocks, skull pins, and zip up eyelets. More from SBTG’s site:

Saturday September 5th will be the Official launch of the first time ever collaboration with 3x DMC Champion INQUISITIVE at the Butter Factory In Singapore.

Our very own local boys, DJ Inquisitive and SBTG have come together and produced a very special limited-edition sneaker honoring the late and great Michael Jackson.

“MJ was the reason I got interested in music in the first place.” says DJ Inquisitive.
“When Leon first approached me to collaborate on a custom design, I searched for a theme to represent his passion in music. Then when the news suddenly broke about MJ’s tragic departure, I knew we would pay tribute to him since both of us grew up listening to him.” explains SBTG.

The “Thriller” custom converse is inspired by the legendary Thriller video and its theme of unleashing the beast within us, featuring SBTG’s new claw-rip design.
The shoe, inspired by the Thriller theme from Michael Jackson’s MTV – Thriller.
