Custom sneaker designers have really been killing it lately. Whether creating unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that combine luxury and streetwear aesthetics or collaborating with some of the biggest names in fashion, the industry has witnessed a massive surge in creativity. And one company that has been at the forefront of this movement is none other than The Shoe Surgeon.
This Los Angeles-based custom footwear company has been creating sneaker masterpieces for over a decade now. With a passion for craftsmanship and attention to detail, their custom designs have gained recognition worldwide. Whether reimagining iconic silhouettes or creating one-of-a-kind collaborations, these gifted artisans consistently create beautiful works of art that we all wish we could add to our own shoe collections. And one of their latest works, the Louis Vuitton Camo Capsule, is no exception.
Using fabric cut directly from designer Louis Vuitton garments, these sneaker gurus have transformed two iconic Jordan silhouettes into four striking sneaker designs. The first iconic Jordan silhouette to get a designer makeover is the Air Jordan 4. Two options are available for sneaker enthusiasts to choose from: the Air Jordan 4 LV “Camo Sand” and the Air Jordan 4 LV “Camo Forest”.
For the “Camo Sand” colourway, the custom sneaker company has utilised fabric from the Louis Vuitton Camo Parachute jacket to cover the entire upper of the shoe. The sneaker thus features a predominantly brown upper, while bright purple thread has been used to add a pop of colour to the camo print. Meanwhile, the “Camo Forest” AJ4 has been constructed using the water-resistant Louis Vuitton Camo Windbreaker. Complementing the camouflage print is a hand-painted orange bubble on the sneakers sole as well as a bright orange thread used to create the signature skull branding, synonymous with the custom footwear brand.
The Louis Vuitton Camo Parachute jacket decorates the upper of the “Camo Sand” colourway with a unique blend of earthy tones and the iconic Louis Vuitton monogram pattern. Premium, butter-soft white pebbled leather features on the toe box, tongue, and mid panels, while the rest of the shoe is covered in the LV Camo Parachute material. On the other hand, the AJ1 LV “Camo Forest” iteration showcases a rich green and brown camouflage print that is beautifully complemented by premium white leather on the toe box, tongue, and mid panels. This creates a striking contrast between the bold camouflage pattern and the clean white accents, giving the shoe a unique and eye-catching aesthetic.
All four colourways offer a stylish twist to the iconic Air Jordan silhouettes while still maintaining the classic design elements that have made it a favourite among sneaker enthusiasts. Incorporating the LV Camo fabric simply adds a high-end touch that elevates the sneakers design to a whole new level of luxury. Whether you prefer the Camo Forest’s boldness or the Camo Sand’s sleekness, you can’t go wrong with these Louis Vuitton x Jordan sneakers.
The LV Camo capsule is currently open for commissions. However, it should be mentioned that these custom sneakers come with a hefty price tag, reflecting the exclusivity and craftsmanship involved in their creation.
