these were originally gonna be based on Taiwans since I'd never seen another customizer do a flip of those, but I figured it would be a lil too plain, plus the swooshes are smaller than normal swooshes and you really wouldnt get the effect. So I decided to add a SanAntonio twist to them since the customer is a Spurs fan. I painted them a flat black, but that was still a lil too plain. I kept changing and adding to the shoe over what had to be months, till I finally came to this result. I tried a couple new things that I havent done before and was really happy with the results. I wanna thank the customer for being SUPER patient with me on these and I hope he likes 'em.

these shoes feature black ripstop material, reflective fleece, with contrast stitching and transparent, gradient swooshes based on the old Spurs colors.

The outline of Texas on the tongues was hand stitched.

crappy base shoe makes the overall shoe crappy.

i applaud you on your execution though.

I wouldnt call AF2's crappy, but the plastic placement definitely makes them a lil more difficult to work with than other retros.

TD- I can guarantee any future projects wouldnt take nearly as long
