I was lucky enough to be invited to the customization workshop held by Snipes and Jordan Brand last Saturday, the 14th of April, in Berlin.

The workshop centered around customizing a pair of the new Nike Air Jordan 1 Mid colorways (Black, Grey/White, Sand/White, Red/White) with the help of some of Germany's best customizers including; Tornschuhjette, Lars Trucks, Sebastian Hook and Rene Turrek. Five tables were setup as working areas with different materials, color pens, laces, and much more were prepared for the guests to use to make their 1of1 Air Jordan I to take home. Snipes offered a modern, upbeat ambience to guests with a live DJ and some fresh snacks and drinks on-hand. 

Do you want to see the custom work I did? Here we go:

I attended this event with my brother Alex, and despite our bright accented laces and swooshes, our designs were quite conservative compared to others who took on deconstructing and recoloring their pairs, opting to upgrade to sewed on swooshes and much more. We ultimately went with a clean grey/white pair for our base and put some crazy colors to create a rainbow effect for our swooshes.

 

The event was ultimately a lot of fun. Being surrounded with great people, great music, good food and, of course, great sneakers is always a plus. Thanks again to Snipes and Jordan Brand! #snipesjumpman
