WHAT THE JORDANS
The “What The Dunk” version of the Nike SB Dunk Low is one of the most infamous and sought-over models ever to grace the SB Dunk line, and since many Dunk aficionados are also Jordan-heads, it was only a matter of time before we saw the concept applied to some Jays. Although Air Jordans have seen plenty of hybrids, mash-ups and Fusions, Revive Customs has come up with a clever way to combine elements of numerous Air Jordan models into one shoe. Enter the “What The One,” an Air Jordan 1 that has been customized to show off features from a number of classic Jordan models. As you can see, the shoe sports some Air Jordan III Elephant print on the toe and upper ankle with another nod to the AJIII by way of the Black leather and Red eyelet rings at the bottom of the laces.
As the eyelet panel makes its way up, it’s covered by an Air Jordan X-inspired striped pattern met by a solid Red ankle section that reps for the OG Air Jordan 1. The lower heel panel is then graced by the abstract design from the Air Jordan VIII with a hint of the Air Jordan VII midsole popping up towards the front of the shoe. Finishing off the “What The One” is an Air Jordan V lace lock and a Black/Gold carbon fiber-like pattern to bring the Taxi Air Jordan XII’s into the mix as well. This pair was created for Mike Cole of SoleFoodNYC, but if you hit up Revive, maybe you can get your own. Keep reading after the jump for some more pics, and be sure to let us know what you think of this creative endeavor.
