We're kicking the year off right with a collection of some of the best customs from January 2021. From Miles Morales AF1s to Stewie Griffin Jordan 1s, sneaker artists have been busy designing some creative colorways and concepts.
Check out the customs below, stop by our online store to grab the paint and tools you need to make your own unique creations.
Miles Morales Air Force 1
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales was the perfect introduction to the PlayStation 5, and in response, sponsored artist @kingdom_made designed a custom pair of Miles Morales-inspired Air Force 1s.
These customs feature a midnight blue and white base color scheme, with Miles Morales' mask-covered portrait spans the outward-facing side panels. On the inward-facing side, a custom spiderweb Nike Swoosh sits on top of a spiderweb pattern and is marked by a graffiti Spider-Man tag.
Boba Fett Jordan 1
With The Book of Bob Fett expected to release this year, one of Star Wars' most recognizable characters is getting his own Disney+ series, and these customs by @colormefresh are the perfect way to prepare for the highly-anticipated show.
Designed to match the famous bounty hunter's armor, these custom Jordan 1s feature a worn, vintage effect in the same vein as Boba Fett's tattered armor. Worn brown laces, faded soles, battered green overlays, and other details complete the colorway.
Stewie Griffin Jordan 1
The colorway is inspired by Stewie's iconic outfit, including red overlays that represent his red overalls and yellow toe boxes and eyelets to represent the undershirt. The shoe features bold black outlines to give it a cartoonish style in the same vein as Family Guy.
Lionheart Yeezy 350
Some of the best customs go beyond simple colorway alterations and feature some truly incredible artwork, like these custom Yeezy 350s created by sneaker artist @gorgworld.
Each shoe features half of the same lion portrait, so when worn together, they complete the detailed image. These customs are completely hand-painted to achieve maximum realism.
MBDTF Air Force 1
Kanye West has one of the greatest discographies in hip-hop, and many consider My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy to be his peak. In honor of this iconic album, sneaker artist @customsbyleanne painted these custom MBDTF-inspired Air Force 1s.
The artwork is inspired by the album's different covers. One shoe features a custom pixelated Swoosh, while the other is modeled after the cover art that includes Kanye's sword-impaled head situated in front of a hand-painted blue sky.
