In today's episode of Kicks On Court Weekly Recap, we take a look at everything that happened on court during the first full week of the 2013-2014 NBA season. We also talk summer sneaker pickups with Phoenix Suns forward PJ Tucker and find out the true story behind King James' Nike LeBron X Elite Custom courtesy of Jake Danklefs.
Custom kicks have become a major part of the sneaker culture recently. Greenwich Vintage Co. has upped the customization ante with the Ronnie Fieg x Dr. Martens Camo Wingtip Brogue "Glow in the Dark" Custom. The exclusive RF x Dr. Martens collaboration kicks were very popular when they first released. On this custom, a gum sole replaces the original black colored outsole. However, the new sole is not just a simple swap. The gum sole actually glows in the dark, and adds another touch of pizazz to the black and camo kicks. The Ronnie Fieg x Dr. Martens Camo Wingtip Brogue Glow in the Dark Custom, and many other high end customs, are available for sale on the Greenwich Vintage website
Nike SB has teamed with Supreme to release a number of sought after premium colorways in their vaunted history. Jake Danklefs of Dank Customs decided to mesh them together on the Nike SB Dunk Low “What the Supreme” Custom. Featuring patches of Supreme x Nike SB Dunks of years past, this Nike SB Dunk Low custom inspires feelings of nostalgia, as well as envy for those that missed out on the various releases. The “What the Supreme” Custom is finished with the words “World Famous” on the heel counter. Contact Dank Customs for all inquiries. Can you spot all of the Supreme x Nike SB collaborations?
Dank Customs has been on an extended hot streak lately. The Nike Air Max 1 "The 305" Custom adds a tremendous selection to the already impressive catalog. Red elephant print traces the bottom portion of the blacked out upper. A white midsole and white Swoosh add a contrasting element, before the three colors share space on the outsole. This Air Max custom takes it up a notch with the custom insoles. The insoles feature the word “MIAMI,” and the city’s picturesque skyline. The Air Max 1 "The 305" Custom is a one of one, but contact Jake Danklefs for all inquires.
Diversitile and 3RCustoms combine their creative talents to create the Nike Dunk High "Metal Guy" Custom. Gold and red call forth Iron Man, and calculated placement of silver accents are reminiscent of scraps of metal. The magic happens, however, when you step into the shoe. The tongue features a circular window that lights up when your foot is inserted. The Nike Dunk High "Metal Guy" Custom is for sale for a limited time now on the Diversitile website.
