Sports Team Theme (on shoe of your choice)























Here's a new offer from Ecentrik Artistry: You can now order a custom shoe based on your favorite sports team with a matching camouflage print and the print style and shoe of your choice!  It can be any sport (football, baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer, etc.), any ranking (pro, college, high school), and any brand shoe (Nike, Jordan, Adidas, Puma, Reebok, etc.).  Want a team theme without the print design?  That can also be arranged.  To order, email me at info@ecentrikart.net for price and order information (prices vary on design and shoe being used, whether you want the shoes supplied or if you are supplying your own).  You can also click here for info.  Below are some examples and just a handful of camo print options:

















(LA Dodgers woodland camo print Air Force One w. Yaisel Puig jersey number)



















(Philadelphia Eagles tiger camo Air Max 90)




















(New York Knicks desert camo Air Force 1)

















(A few camo selections (clockwise from top left): desert camo, tiger camo, digi camo, woodland camo)

Again, if you want the them without a design pattern or with a different pattern, that can also be done.  Email for more information.

Customer Spotlight: Oilers & Eagles customs













These were done for the same client who requested the Gucci Jordan 3s from the last post.  The client sent me a pair of his Jordan 3 Fire Reds and a pair of Air Jordan 1s to create some NFL Team colorways.

First up is the Houston Oilers (the team that would later become the Tennessee Titans).  The customer not only sent his Fire Red Jordan 3s, but a Mitchell and Ness throwback Oilers jacket for reference to get the colorway as close as possible.























This custom was done with just the colorway..no logos or patterns.

Then there's the Eagles custom Jordan 1s.  Like the Oilers shoes, the customer wanted to keep it basic with just the colors, which are meant to match this Jacket:























As you can see, the jacket has the throwback black and green colors as opposed to the teal green that they wear today.  The base shoe was the white/metallic green Jordan 1 highs:

















And here is the finished product:



























If you notice, in this one I changed the metallic green into a more solid matte green (at the client's request).  Has a nice clean look that goes well with the jacket.

Speaking of sports related themes,  in a future post (probably the next post), I'll be posting some kicks from earlier this summer that I never posted that center around a sports theme option being offered in the online store.  If interested in a custom idea of your own, email me at info@ecentrikart.net.

Customer Spotlight: "Gucci"














The Jordan 3s are my all time favorite Jordan model (followed by the 5s and 4s), which is probably evidenced from my last few customs seen here, most of which used the 3s as a base.  This particular one here was another Jordan 3 custom, this one an idea from a client.

The client sent me a pair of his Jordan flip 3s for customization.  The idea was to have the shoe done with a Gucci theme but still kept fairly simple.  Here's the original base shoe:















And here is the finished product:












































What I did was white out all of the areas of the shoe where the elephant print are but kept the print visible.  Add the dark green and varsity red and you have the Gucci colorway!  This was a 1-of-1 design (meaning this shoe will not be duplicated) but am willing to do a variation of the theme on a different shoe.

Have an idea of your own?  Contact me at my email address: info@ecentrikart.net.  Or contact me through the contact section of my website: www.ecentrikart.net.

"Easter Egg"

















Been on a roll with Jordan 3 based customs lately so here's another for the Jordan 3 column (another one coming after this as well).  Now I know Easter's a long way off but I figured i'd dub these as "Easter Egg" because of the color combo.

Like the sneakers in my last two posts, the base shoe was once again, the Jordan 3 Fire Reds:
















And here's the finished product:




















The pair in this picture were done for a client based in Germany (yes I do ship international for those unaware).  I just think the colors remind me of an Easter theme and/or colorful Easter eggs, so I gave them the "Easter Egg" name.  The shoe features a smooth transition of purples and blues which were done by hand (I don't use an airbrush..I actually don't even own one).  If you have a custom idea of your own you want to see fulfilled, contact me through the contact section of my website, www.ecentrikart.net (all inquiries go directly to my email) or directly at the email address, info@ecentrikart.net

"Lemon Lime"

Here's the 3rd green-themed shoe i've done within the past year.  Last month I brought you the "Emerald Green" Jordan 5s (which are still available in the online store), and last year, I did a custom shoe called "Emerald" Jordan 3 (which is still available here).  Well recently, the idea came to revisit that custom style and color theme, but this time with a bit of a twist......of lime.

















The "Lemon Lime" customs are done with the same process as the Emerald 3s...all the way down to the original base shoe, which was the Fire Red 3s:
















However, the one difference from the Emerald 3s is that this shoe has lighter shades of green than the Emeralds.  Below is a comparison between the two.  First is the Emerald 3s:

















And here are the Lemon Limes:

















As you can see, both have the green fade on the sides (done with no airbrush) and the same color blocking style, but with different shades of green.  The greens on the Lemon Limes are a lot lighter and I also used different laces for the finishing touch.  More pics of the Lemon Limes are below:




















The "Lemon Lime" Jordan 3s are available at this link: http://www.ecentrik.bigcartel.com/product/air-jordan-3-lemon-lime-custom

"Code Blue"

















Just a little something I whipped up recently.  These are the Jordan 3 "Code Blue" customs.  This was pretty much a design that I came up with on the fly a few nights ago.  Did these with a pair of deadstock Fire Red Jordan 3s I had sitting around in my bedroom:
















And here's the finished product:






















These are currently up in the online store at this link:

This custom can also be done in other colorways if desired.  Email at info@ecentrikart.net for info.
