Customs are quite possibly the new PEs.
We’ve already seen two custom sneakers worn during Opening Week of the 2013-2014 NBA season, and we’re about to see a third in a few hours. Tonight, Los Angeles Lakers forward Wes Johnson (@Weside11) will debut his adidas Crazy 8 “Python/Ostrich” Custom on court. The 1-of-1, designed in a collaborative effort between Megan Ann Wilson and JBF Customs, is comprised of white ostrich, white python and a touch of grey python above the toe area and on the heel. Johnson will wear this shoe tonight to coincide with the Lakers’ debut of their alternate white uniforms tonight. For detailed information on the actual design and creative process from Wes and JBF Customs, check out our latest episode of Kicks On Court Weekly Recap.
Tune in to ESPN tonight at 9:30 PM CDT to see Wes Johnson take to the court in this custom-designed shoe in the Spurs vs. Lakers matchup.
