Air Jordan 4 “DeadWood” Custom Travels to the Wild-West

The Air Jordan 4 is arguably one of Tinker Hatfield’s most renown creations. Ever since its introduction, the AJ4 has transcended sports, film and music. From its appearance in Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing to being used as the silhouette for various Jordan collabs (such as those for Eminem and Travis Scott), the 4 is in a league of its own when it comes to recognition and importance to both sneaker and pop culture.

In light of that, customizer Ceeze went back in time by giving the Air Jordan 4 a Western look like never before.

The upper was reconstructed using brown alligator, black stingray and black shark to bring to life a rugged, Western look for the pair. The custom Air Jordan 4 “DeadWood” is a luxurious rendition of the Wild-West from a sneakerhead’s perspective.

Take a look at the pair below, and be sure to follow the artist here. Are you feeling these? Would you rock them? Let us know in the comments on social.

NMD Travels: See How Sami Miró Sources & Reimagines Vintage Denim

Designer Sami Miró’s life revolves around vintage clothing. Her studio space is a trove of rare finds from old school Americana like denim and Harley Davidson t-shirts, to salvaged runway pieces which will eventually be meticulously cut, sewn and reimagined for celebrity and fashion devotee clients. Since making LA her base of operations, Sami has scoured the sprawling city to build a network of suppliers, embroidery specialists and pattern technicians who help bring her garments to life.

Giving a behind-the-scenes look inside the world of Los Angeles vintage, Sami took HYPEBEAST out for a day to shadow her curation and design process. Starting first at her archive of clothing, Sami showed us what makes a piece worthy of obtaining before taking us to the warehouses where she spends hours sifting through old garments. Finally, we caught a glimpse of her construction process in action alongside her pattern technician Elliott Evan.

During the journey, Sami picked out some of her favorite pieces to rock — selecting a customized retro adidas hoodie along with some throwback 2Pac track pants for the day. She paired the look with the latest adidas NMD XR1 W to add a modern edge and comfort for the long day ahead. Watch the complete video above to see and hear more about Sami and pickup the latest adidas NMD sneakers at the official adidas webstore.
