The Best Customs of May 2019

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy.

The month of May is officially over and June has arrived. Things are heating up to say the least. Not just temperature wise, but customizers are really bringing their A-game this summer.

As expected (shoutout to Travis Scott), the Air Jordan 1 “Cactus Jack” retail release inspired a plethora of customizers to create their own pairs. You could argue that some are even better than what dropped.

We even saw some classic silhouettes get reworked including Nike SB Dunks and Nike Air Force 1 Lows. Take a look at the best customs from this month. Be sure to tag your favorite custom sneakers with #NiceKicksCustoms as we look ahead of the month of June…starting now.

Custom Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Glass”
