Custom Jordan 8 – “Elephant Bugs” Custom Sneakers
Everyone has been asking when we would drop a new pair of custom sneakers, we know…you’ve been patiently waiting. I’m going to get right to it…there is no need to build suspense when it’s already there. Today we’re going to introduce our custom painted Elephant Print Jordan 8s. You won’t see elephant print on Air Jordan 8’s because they don’t exist…well, they didn’t until we created these custom sneakers.
The detail displayed in the elephant print is what you’ve come to expect from us and we feel this is a shoe that Jordan brand should have released on their own. Check out the pics of these custom Jordans and let us know what you think in the comments below..either way we love them and loved creating them for the lucky person that’s rocking these custom sneakers right now. Did I mention these are custom sneakers? I made a point to reiterate that several times just due to the fact that some people see our pics and make the assumption that they must be fakes. The base for this shoe is/was an authentic pair of Jordan 8s…the rest was hand customized by us. So by all means these are a pair of Custom Jordans. You won’t find them in stores and hopefully China won’t copy these and start producing them like our previous Custom Jordans.
Just another sick pair of custom sneakers from your favorite design team. More custom kicks are on the way and I’m sure you are wondering how to order your very own custom sneaker design.

Marty McFly Jordan 6 – Custom Kicks
Okay so we have wanted to create these custom sneakers for awhile and we’re happy to finally be able to actually complete this custom sneaker design and put it out there for the world to enjoy!
These are a pair of customized Air Jordan 6 Sneakers inspired by the Marty McFly Nike Air Mag release. We’re going to keep this post short and sweet. Long story short, we had a custom sneaker design consultation with a customer that provided his Jordan VI kicks and allowed for us to come up with a design for them. The end result is a pair of Jordan VI Marty McFly Mag Custom Kicks!

Real Metallic Jordan V’s
The Real Metallic Jordan V customs have just dropped from the exclusive custom kicks designer team, Flight Crew. The release is initially inspired by the Black Metallic Jordan V and the shoes were customized in a way that they STILL have their original suede feel to them. We have mastered the technique of being able to change the color of suede without making the suede lose its feel and nobody else in the world is doing it!
Real Metallic V’s Before
Simply put, this Jordan V just did not seem metallic enough. Thus, an idea struck to approach these custom kicks with a unique and simple twist. The concept was to do something original that has never been done before and make the Jordan V a truly metallic sneaker.

“Tiffs” Jordan V Custom Kicks
I’m a HUGE SB fan so I’ve been wanting to do some SB inspired with our custom kicks for awhile now and this project came up. So here is the story. A customer reached out and let us know that he’s really been wanting to create some custom Jordans based off of the Diamond Supply co and Nike collab that was released years back and dubbed the “Tiffany Dunks”. This immediately grabbed our attention so we quickly got started on putting together a concept for these shoes.
We had to create a custom paint color for these sneakers as the color simply didn’t exist and we followed that up by creating a SICK custom box to go along with these as they are custom kicks after all. This meant we also had to create a custom paint for the box (thank you to our local home improvement store )We did a special paint job on these that makes the shoes glisten just a little bit when you look at them from different angles and our painting technique did not take away the look and feel of the suede material on the shoes which was very important to us. We were tempted to go with a pink box to tribute the box that the original tiffany dunks were released in but made a last minute change of plans on the box and we hope that you like it.
With our custom kicks, the end result is always a pair that the same and better quality that you would get from our of any shoe store versus a look where you for example would see things like brush strokes on the shoes. It’s not an easy feat to pull off but then again, we’re super human!
This Air Jordan V served as the base of these Custom Kicks – Metallic V Jordans BEFORE
Tiffany Jordan V Custom Sneakers AFTER
The end result consists of a pair of customized shoes that represent the collab that we wished would have happend but didn’t. You will notice that we accented the custom sneakers with some Swarovski crystals, we completely changed the color scheme of this shoe while also keeping the original feel and look of the suede that is on these Jordan Vs! As far as the box…well the box has it’s own story. We started with a Jordan box, and it was a Jordan/Diamond Supply Tiffany box by the time we were done with it complete with a white velvet inside liner to give these custom kicks the ultimate resting place when not being worn.

The box for these Custom Kicks
I’ll admit, this weeks sneaker drop is really for those fellow SB fans. If you aren’t a SB fan, well you probably won’t even get the concept of these Customized Jordans. As always, thanks for the love, comments and continued support. Take a moment and go like us on our Proof Culture Facebook Fan Page. Until then, we’ll be back next Friday with a new drop of custom kicks or like my buddy in the UK says “custom trainers”!
Creating custom sneakers is simply something that we love to do. Every pair of custom kicks has it’s own unique challenges and we love a good challenge. So when people asked if we were going to do a pair of South Beach custom trainers, our answer was “probably not”. After all aside from creating custom colors to do the job, it’s just a colorway.
However, Dubstepslap415 presented us with a unique challenge. Something that if we did, we KNEW that nobody else aside from Nike themselves could replicate.
WARNING – Replicating these custom sneakers are most likely out of your price range (trust me) but we wanted to take an moment and just show off by doing these. Now, if you want a pair of custom South Beach Vs created at a reasonable price, we would not use this shoe as the base but rather the metallic Jordan Vs. You see, he wanted to take his pair of Independence Day Jordan V’s and turn them into a pair of custom South Beach Jordan Vs. But this was no simple task by any stretch of the imagination. I know it looks easy – “get some paint and slop it on the sneakers right?” WRONG.
You see, creating these custom sneakers were a logistical nightmare. The midsole was blue and the shark teeth were red with white speckles and ALL of this is rubber. Next, this Jordan V toe has patent leather and tell me how many times you have seen the color of patent leather customized? I’ll wait…..go ahead….no, take your time…EXACTLY. Then you have the fact that the netting is clear with a white background and there is plastic around some of the lace holes. And the insides, let’s not even talk about the inside of the shoe. And the tongue? Fugitaboutit. There were 7 different types of material that we had to get around in dealing with these Jordans!
All this combined made for the perfect custom sneaker challenge. So let’s get to it!
The Custom Sneaker Mockup
As you all know by now. Our concepts turn into digital custom sneaker mockups and we are the only one’s in the game that provide this but then again, we’re PROOF so what else would you expect? Below you’ll see the custom sneaker mockup that we presented to Dubstepslap415.
Then we got started with creating these custom Jordan Vs.
