Air Force One '07 "Atmos"
Custom by J2
I really like the colorway of the Air Max '87 "Atmos". So much so, I wanted to replicate the palette onto a different canvas. I was rummaging through my stash and found a pair of all white Air Force One Icey Sole that I hadn't touched or worn yet. So I decided to give it a go for a few days.
I thought covering the entire shoe in elephant print was too much, so I splashed the heel in the Air Jordan III inspired pattern and left the toe box alone. I wanted another mock-luxury "bespoke" style material on the shoe as well, so I took out the burner and carved a faux-croc skin Swoosh.
I tried to duplicate the clear-jade color as best as I could, but I couldn't get it bright enough. Maybe next time I could use some neon colors. But it still turned out okay for contrast.
Anyway, here is my latest. It's not perfect and I wish I knew how to sew so I can take the tongue off and work on that, but oh well. I'm pretty happy with it.
And for those interested, here is a before pic.
