JBF Customs ran by Jake Ferrato was commissioned to create a custom adidas Crazy 1 shoe for Damian Lillard with his signature style and what he came up with was straight opulence. JBF Customs explains:
“adidas came to me about two months ago looking for a piece to display at Compound Gallery’s release event of the Crazy 1. The base shoe had to be a Crazy 1 of course, and their theme was around the ‘City of Roses.’
I didn’t want to do anything overly obvious like putting roses all over the shoes, so I blended my signature exotic leathers in a more subtle way. The red python was chosen because, as they say, roses are red. The stingray around the heel and stripes was chosen because it reminded me of water droplets on the petals. The paneling of the shoes was modified to give a more elegant look, with the long strips of suede extending from toe to heel like the stems of a rose.”
As far as luxury goes, these kicks should be reviewed by Robin Leach.
