Inspired by the upcoming ZX Flux release and previous “Pigeon” pairs, we see a new adidas ZX 5000 Custom. Designed by Zhijun Wang, this pair pops with grey, orange and white accents to the tune of leather, mesh and suede styling. Themed tagging is prevalent on the upper and the heels, highlighting the Jeff Staple inspiration. Follow @zhijunwang on IG to see more of his custom work.
Paying tribute to Jeff Staple and his “Rain Camo” Kia Soul, Zhijun Wang revamps said styling on a custom pair of the adidas Springblade. Also pulling from the “Pigeon” palette, this pair places pinkish-orange hits on a mostly grey base. Rain camo print covers the majority of the upper, with Staple inspired tagging appearing on the tongue and toe box. Follow @zhijunwang on Instagram for all order inquiries.

UNLV guard Kevin Olekaibe is already a mainstay in College Kicks On Court, but now the Runnin’ Rebel is taking his footwork to the next level. Olekaibe will wear a one of one Air Jordan 3 “UNLV” Custom against New Mexico at the Thomas & Mack Center tonight for a Mountain West rivalry game. After donning a variety of sneakers, including different colorways of the Air Jordan XX and multiple other retros, KO will lace this Air Jordan 3 that is fully customized. Created by Samsilva63 with a pair of “Fire Red” 3s, these feature an all-red upper with red and black elephant print. What truly sets this custom apart is its detailing, which comes in the form of Runnin’ Rebel logos on the tongues, illuminated visible air pockets, and an intricately crafted heel logo that turns the Jumpman symbol into a silhouette of Kevin Olekaibe himself.
