Our friend Brandon over at Paint or Thread put together this awesome list of the most notable custom sneakers by Mache. If you’re not familiar with Mache, he is one of the most well-known artist in the custom sneaker game today. He has made shoes for LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Nate Robinson just to name a few. Below are 10 of his creations that every sneakerhead should be aware of. Take a look.
One of my favorite sneaker collaborations, which originally released in 2007, is between shoe magazine, Sneaker Freaker, and Puma. The Blaze of Glory comes in two different colorways, one named the Great White and the other is Black Beast. If you missed out the first time around you can grab these from Sneaker Freaker’s web shop on November 23rd.
Here we have the latest colorway of the D Rose 4. Dubbed “Chicago Nightfall,” the colorway pays tribute to Derrick’s hometown of Chicago and the unique look of the city at night. The purple tones represent the night sky and Lake Michigan while the bright yellow accents and collar lining represent the lights of the city and how they reflect on the sky and lake. The purple front half of the shoe features a metallic finish while the back half of the shoe features a GEOFIT collar and SPRINTFRAME in blast purple with additional accents in bright yellow.
Nike just released a new Oregon Ducks inspired version of the classic Air Diamond Turf. The kicks sport the University of Oregon’s signature colors with a predominately green upper with black and yellow accents. They also feature the Oregon “O” logo on the back of the shoes. Being Phil Knight’s Alma mater definitely has its perks.
Not that I would ever wear these, but I’m starting to think I need to grab some adidas Originals designed by Jeremy Scott for my collection. This is the Holiday Bears collection, which features 2 different colorways of the Originals bear shoe. Expect these to release on November 15th.
The 10th anniversary collection from the Nike Doernbecher Freestyle collection has been set to release this month on the 23rd. The program has helped raise more the $6 million for the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, OR. Here’s a look at the shoes in this year’s collection.
