When it comes to the custom sneakers we present, majority of them have pushed the envelope with insane graphics, new material, and sometimes even lights and scratch ‘n sniff elements. Sometimes though, a simple color swap is all it takes to build a solid custom. Proving this so is a NSB member by the name of bufoon who choose the new Nike SB Dunk Low “Eric Koston” as the base for his very first custom.
Upon receiving the SB Dunk Low bufoon felt something was missing. There just appeared to be much to blue in his eyes and felt a touch of black with help to round things out more to his liking. Taking a bottle of dye for suede, bufoon went to work on dying the frontal, heel panel and lace panels of the Koston’s black. The attention to detail put into doing such a thing is so clean you would feel that Nike SB produced these as a sample version or something. A closer look at the sneakers goes to show that bufoon even took the time to work around the stitching, allowing the panels he dyed black to display blue contrast stitching.
I happen to like Koston’s SB Dunk Low in it’s original state, but bufoon’s version is pretty dope as well and is defiantly something I wouldn’t mind having alongside the originals. They’ll defiantly work with more. For his first custom, although a minor one, we gotta give bufoon two thumbs up on this one.
