You may remember @_dsignr_ from the epic Air Jordan 1 custom we posted last month. Yes, the same sneaker artist that combined the distressed armour look of one of the most feared bounty hunters in the Star Wars universe, Boba Fett, with the iconic Air Jordan silhouette. Well, now this talented artist is back with yet another jaw-dropping creation that is sure to leave sneakerheads in awe. This time, however, the creative has taken inspiration from something far less expected (the iconic combination of Jack Daniel’s whiskey and Coca-Cola) to create a unique Air Jordan 1 sneaker.
Jack Daniel’s and Coke go together like peanut butter and jelly, a classic combination that has stood the test of time. Combine the smoothness of Jack with the rich, caramel notes of Coke, and you’ve got yourself a deliciously satisfying drink—just don’t forget to add the ice. But what if you could wear that perfect blend on your feet? Well, that’s precisely what @_dsignr_ has done with his latest custom Jordan 1 sneaker design created for Jack Daniel’s collector, @robdusthimer.
The artist has brilliantly incorporated the distinct colours and branding of both Jack Daniel’s and Coca-Cola into these Air Jordan 1 Retro High sneakers. The result? A unique and eye-catching custom pair that pays homage to two iconic brands in a creative and unexpected way.
This colourway features a “Bred” red toe with a Jordan 1 Retro High 85 “Black/White” base. A silver hue covers the leather on the heel collar and Swoosh logo, while little drops reminiscent of the condensate on a cold glass of Jack and Cola add a playful touch to these elements.
Various branding details can also be found throughout the sneaker (such as the Daniel’s and Coca-Cola logos on the tongue, heel, and insole), creating a strong association between the two brands.
The custom branding tags on the tongue were provided by embroidery designer @ez_stitcher, while the reflective flat laces used to lace up the sneaker were sourced from @litlaces. The finishing touches on the look are a classic white midsole and a black rubber outsole that seamlessly blend into the rest of the custom. Oh, and let’s not forget the stunning display case created by @lookseedesigns to house these amazing Air Jordan 1 sneakers.
Whether they are displayed in a sneaker collection or worn out on the streets, these Air Jordan 1 customs are a beautiful nod to a timeless pairing. The attention to detail in the design, from those attentively placed water drops to the carefully selected materials, truly sets these custom sneakers apart. Sadly for us, these sneakers are a one-of-one commission explicitly created to meet the client’s specifications, but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate the artistry and craftsmanship that went into creating them.
