Air Jordan 5: “Smash” Customs by Sekure D

November 26th, 2013 By

Sekure D returns with another Air Jordan 5 custom after his Despicable Me referencing silhouette emerged a week ago. Today the comic book fan chooses the Incredible Hulk as his inspiration atop an Air Jordan 5 “Grape” that takes the super hero’s morphing green muscles to task by covering the toebox with a hand painted look while David Banner’s purple clothes rip on the back heel. The side panels get an interesting subtle treatment as well, as they feature a cool grey esque color with cement cracking while clean white is retained for the mesh ventilation and lace loops.

Air Jordan 5: “Minion” Customs by Sekure D

November 19th, 2013 By

If the Air Jordan 5 “Laney” release wasn’t enough yellow and blue for you, then look no further than Sekure D’s latest creation, as he draws inspiration from the massively successful and critically-acclaimed Despicable Me franchise to turn the classic Jordan silhouette into an homage to Steve Carrell’s little helpers. The Minion callout here is fairly obvious as the upper sports their yellow color with hairs drawn to mimic their bald spare heads while a denim speckle hits the toebox for their overalls.

Air Jordan IV: “Asphalt” Customs by Sekure D

November 5th, 2013 By

Sekure D has been bringing his original flair to classic Jordan silhouettes for some time now, and a personal favorite of both his and ours is the ubiquitous Air Jordan IV. While it brought that timeless cement speckle to the forefront and his been imitated time and time again by rival brands and reused by the Jumpman themselves, today Sekure D takes inspiration from the industrial staple and takes it a step further with his “Asphalt” customs. Painting a pebbled look in grey, black and even a hint of white, the tongue is hit with a contrasting cement speckle to give it a grayscale look. What do you think of these customs?

October 8th, 2013 By

Air Jordan IV: “Sinner City” Customs by Sekure D

October 3rd, 2013 By

Sekure D continues his Sin City motif atop another classic Air Jordan, this time covering the Air Jordan IV in Frank Miller’s iconic black and white visuals with a hint of fire red in a perfect pairing that’s starting to make celebrities take notice, as the Dallas Maverick’s own Bernard James purchased this pair. Unfortunately the Mavs kind of go the opposite way in terms of uniform colors so we won’t be seeing these hit the hardwood anytime soon. With a comic book gradient on the mudguard and the upper hit with a black sky with white rain drops, the shoe also features graffiti like lettering.
