Who wants their fit and sneakers to differ from their aesthetic Insta feed? With the growing amount of custom sneakers out there, it is becoming more possible for sneakerheads worldwide to have the sneakers of their dreams. If you are a fan of majestic-looking sneakers that emulate the look of the sky with fluffy clouds, this pair of Nike Air Jordan 4 custom sneakers called “Cloud” might be the perfect fit for you.
There are a lot of cloud-aesthetic sneakers out there, but I have never seen one as bright as this pair. There is very little on the sneakers that are not light blue. The entire sneaker takes the Air Jordan 4 silhouette and drowns it in a super icy sky blue.
The outsole at the heel is a brighter blue that looks like it could be the only bit of white on the sneakers, which is then repeated on the tip of the outsole, which is quickly swallowed by a darker (but still light) blue that appears icy and semi-translucent. The midsole is a similar blue but isn’t translucent like the bridge of the outsole. The midsole is a bit confusing because you can see “AIR” written on the side. This characteristic is usually shared across some of @chefhuyle‘s work. Still, these sneakers must appear on their page, so who knows?
Moving up from there, we finally get to take a detailed look at the upper of the sneakers, which is sky blue leather decorated to look like clouds or even crashing waves, depending on how you look. The clouds are brought to life with white accents and a slightly darker blue anchoring them, and the pattern is spread at random all over the sneakers, from the mudguard and toe box to the mid-foot, all the way around the heel.
The classic Air Jordan 4 support wings on the laces are a semi-translucent and icy blue that matches the arch of the outsole and the plastic heel tabs standard to the AJ4 look. The mesh inserts that characterize the Air Jordan 4 silhouette match that material. Still, the semi-translucency is barely perceptible against the blue leather underneath.
The light blue laces match the rest of the sneakers and bear the same label as the sole to describe them as “SHOELACES.” It also matches the inner lining of the sneakers as a plain blue rather than sharing the cloud pattern of the rest of the sneakers.
These sneakers were shared on the @customkickswrld Instagram account and were attributed to an unknown creator, and sadly, it isn’t known where you can get your own pair of these. When fans of the account asked where they could get their pair from, the original poster told fans to email them, so it may be possible. If that doesn’t pan out, Ant Kai, another sneaker customizer, is well-known for his iconic cloud designs, so check him out for something similar.
