There is a new pair of custom sneakers released daily because there is. Custom sneaker designers and creators are more popular than ever, making beautiful, often one-of-a-kind sneakers for their collections or clients. The latest pair we are looking at is a stunning pair of Air Jordan 11 Low custom sneakers with a “Red Paisley” design created by @KattyCustoms.
These sneakers were first shared by @spsoleshouts on Instagram in 2020, and if you are like their many followers who wanted to get their hands on them back then, they are actually still available for order today.
The custom Air Jordan 11s have a stunning red outsole contrasted by the black midsole that meets it all around the sneakers. While the red rubber of the outsole is pretty standard, the black rubber of the midsole has a textured pattern that makes it look like mesh, an addition to the sneakers that add a tactile element to the otherwise smooth and sleek pair.
The Air Jordan 11 is famous for using shiny patent leather in its construction, using the material to make up the lower section of the shoe. With the “Red Paisley” pair, this shiny patent leather is one seamless piece wrapped around the upper of the sneakers. The background of the pattern is entirely red, with black and white designs throughout the sneakers, from paisley to leaves, to stripes, to decorative dots, all working together to make an eye-catching pattern while not overpowering the sneakers. On the website, it is mentioned that the pattern is hand-painted, which should give you a concept of the incredible amount of skill that this sneaker customizer has.

The rest of the upper is almost entirely black save for writing on the tongue area, keeping the beloved look of the Air Jordan 11 while adding @kattycustoms’ paisley flare to the sneakers. The panel that wraps around the ankle is black leather with a sheen but isn’t quite as shiny as the lower part of the shoe’s construction. This texture is matched throughout the lace unit and on the tongue of the sneakers.
As usual, with the Air Jordan 11 sneakers at least, the laces have a stitched-on design made up of black canvas, with each loop of the canvas housing the cord that makes up the black laces.
One could argue that the pair is too busy for their liking. Still, the “Red Paisley” brings the perfect level of intrigue to these otherwise subtle sneakers, adding a touch of fun to a pair that is usually straight to the point. If you want a splash of fun in your collection, these are the perfect sneakers.
Luckily for us, @KattyCustoms is still active on Twitter, and they have an extensive website detailing all of their hard work, as well as where you can buy your own custom sneakers from this magnificent artist. The Air Jordan 11 Low “Red Paisley” is still available on the website for $1250 if you want to get your hands on this incredible custom sneaker.
