Air Jordan V: “Prince of Fresh” Customs by Rocket Boy Nift

September 14th, 2013 By

The Air Jordan 5 is getting hit with so many colorways for the remainder of 2013 that it’s starting to get hard to keep track. One of the standouts will be the Air Jordan V “Bel-Air” pair that takes inspiration from the 90s sitcom that gave Will Smith his big acting start in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. While the official release does a good job at paying homage to Will’s fresh use of vibrant colors and patterns, if wasn’t enough for Rocket Boy Nift as he hits the Air Jordan 5 with numerous all over prints to keep the upper almost as busy as Will during his tenure on the WB sitcom. Hit the jump for a full look and let us know what you think of this custom in the comments.

Air Jordan III: “Dunk Contest” Customs by Rocket Boy Nift

August 21st, 2013 By

Although the Air Jordan III “Fire Red” just dropped a few weeks ago, Rocket Boy Nift couldn’t have enough nostalgia for a young MJ spreading his wings to fly in the old Chicago Stadium to win the 1988 Slam Dunk Contest. So as any smart customizer would, Nift decided to ditch the elephant print in lieu of a screen printed graphic of the crowd during that All-Star Game event. While the staple elephant print is missed, the crazy idea to put the iconic photo on the upper gives anyone the excuse to check out more images, and if you’re really feeling these pick them up from niftnif1990 on eBay.

Air Jordan V: “Winnipeg” Customs by Rocket Boy Nift

March 19th, 2013 By

Does a Winnie-the-Pooh inspired Air Jordan V sound like something you’d want to wear? The sneaker shown actually has some connection to that fictional bear, as they’re named after the real life bear that Winnie got his name from. The colorway in place from custom creator Rocket Boy Nift doesn’t get caught up in the cutesy though, and he instead goes for a tough black look featuring embossed leather and some nice bits of embroidery. See the Air Jordan V “Winnipeg” customs in better detail below and then buy them from niftnif1990 on eBay.

Does this Air Jordan V custom look familiar? The pair is a remix of sorts of the earlier Rocket Boy Nift ‘Fresh Prince’ custom so it certainly should if you’ve been keeping up with us here at Jordans Daily.
