Sneaker Customizer Twitch presents us with a look at his first pair of custom sneakers for 2010. If the name doesn’t ring a bell it should, seeing as how Twitch has been featured here on Sneaker Obsession atleast 5 times, if not more. His designs are always original, his attention to detail is superb and elements tied into the sneakers always helps to round out some of the sick custom sneakers.
For his first design of the year Twitch put together the Nike Dunk Hi “Black Mamba”, a design and theme obviously inspired by Kobe Bryant who’s on court nickname is “The Black Mamba”. The frontal and lace panels feature a highly detailed hand painted black and gold snakeskin pattern resembling a snake coiled around the shoe. A repeated pattern of matte on gloss Kobe Bryant logos adorn the rear heel panels. Custom leather tongue tags where then created with “Black” printed on tag of the right sneaker and “Mamba” printed on the tag of the left sneakers. Behind both tags is Twitch’s. Custom “Kobe Bryant” lace jewels were also created to add a bit of bling to the laces.
The design phase on the sneakers ends there, but Twitch took things a step further like he usually does and created a custom sewed bag made of faux snakeskin fabric with gold and black pull-ties, and did up a custom painted cardboard box made to look like a snake head. It’s the added elements like this which really help Twitch’s customs to stand out.
