Air Jordan 5 “What the 5″ Custom

Air Jordan 5 "What the 5" Custom


Almost every “What the” sneaker that has released has been an instant sellout. Something about the wild paneling and funky appearance is mesmerizing to a lot of sneaker enthusiasts. Drawing inspiration from the unique trend, DeJesus Customs has cooked up a “What the 5″ concoction on the Air Jordan 5. Painted onto the recently released Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red”, the left shoe is sub-named the “What the Doernbecher” since it features the designs from all six Doernbecher models. To contrast, the right shoe consists of “artistic sample” Jordans such as Joan Miro’s 7s, Dave White’s work, and the Eminem collaboration. As one of the most detailed custom sneakers to date, this “What the 5″ piece is a new twist on the collage trend.

Should Jordan Brand consider releasing a few “What The” Air Jordans? Let us know if you’d like to see the style transition from one Beaverton building to another in the comment box underneath, and stay tuned to Nice Kicks for everything sneakers.

  1. Could b better,, its randomness doesn’t come together right “what the dunks” were on point … these!! Not so much

  2. even IM gonna say those are horrible. who approves this vomit? i wanna see the person or persons in the “creative” room that is responsible for this mess. these look like Rev Run’s daughter’s shoes

  3. Why????? This is like going to a Picasso art gallery and letting your 2yr old spray paint their art on his prized work.

  4. lol–OBVIOUSLY zero creative dept. and ya–its custom garbage. and i wear nothin BUT Jordans and Nikes–pictured above is rubbish.

  5. these are horrible. would;ve been better if the different designs were from different 5′s… i see shit from eminem 2s, miro oly 7s, it just doesnt make sense

  6. They should make another pair exactly like these and throw them both in the trash. (In my Kevin Hart voice)

  8. Hellen Keller made these. I at least hope the base model was from a recent release so it wasn’t a complete waste.

  9. The sad part is, the guy who made these “Dejesus Customs” actually does dope work an has fire customs…but this is just horrible!!

  11. The amount of or “load of work” is irrelevant when your design is TRASH and not well executed.
    It’d be one thing if the designs all came from a Jordan V (5) line, but they all don’t. THEN the execution was HORRIBLE, at best!

  12. I mean, just look at the sneaker itself. It’s like they gave it to a class of 1st graders and had each one of them paint a section.

  13. yeah i know I’m not saying they’re good I’m saying it’s sad that they’re bad is i guess what I’m saying is..
    Its sad a man puts in hard work but fails because his ideas are different i guess
    or maybe it’s sad cause someone whose really good at painting customs doesn’t have a good design
    Or maybe I’m just empathetic
    I think they’re ugly
    They’re so ridicules
    insanely odd
    But someone put in work ya know?
    Its just sad this COULDN’T have just been done bye a bunch of 1st graders.

  14. Just sad. Can’t pull off loud custom jordans. Too traditional of a shoe. The custom snakeskin 5′s are nice though.

  15. well no i take one part of that back his ideas arent different i mean they kinda are cause he did the whole “what the?” thing but with prints from different models on the jordan line but its really just the same old “What the?” every custom painter does

  16. Waaaaaah…they’re not all 5s. Who cares? This is one dude doing what he wanted for his pair. One side all DB, the other his favorite Js. Hate on the design all you want, but the execution is flawless. Kid does great work. I would not wear them, I’d frame them.

  17. 1st tyme i seen unanimous disgust over a custom…but im witta majority deez r hideous n a disgrace 2 sneakerheadz worldwide

  18. More like the execution is FLAWED! My nephew is 6 and can paint a pair of kicks better than THIS poor excuse for a “custom.”

  19. BTW You got a little something on the side of your mouth. Make sure he wipes up next time, when you’re done sucking.

  20. What a disgrace and an insult to all V’s. That Tokyo 23 on the side… could it be more ugly? Christ!

  21. Some of the execution is not bad, but why take colourways from different models? I see db4 in the toe, Miro 7, db 9 and so on.

  22. They just gonna put random colorways on sneaks to gain attention? What ever happend to chasing the match?
