Retro Colorways

Retro Colorways

Sometimes, the basic red and white or blue and white customs can get boring. As a result, some artists use bright, pale colors and retro design patterns to make their customs stand out. Here are some of our favorite examples of artists doing just that.

Retro Jordans

First up are these custom Jordans from @custom_sneakersbynore. The bright color palette used on these customs is one of the first things that springs to mind for most people when they hear the word 'retro.' Angelus Grinch Green Paint, Angelus Hot Pink Paint, and Angelus Light Blue Paint can help you get going on a similar colorway.

Next, we have these two pairs of Jordans made by @mizmonsta. These customs remind us of some of our favorite arcade games. Putting together a 12 Color Assortment Kit of some of the bright neon colors used here can get you started on your own retro Jordans.
