The Shoe Surgeon is showing off his hot take on the ‘Banned’ Air Jordan 1. The sneaker customiser has reimagined the retro ball shoe as a menagerie of leathers. Thick scales from a red python adorn the toe box, Swoosh and heel. Blacked out Horween nubuck makes up the rest of the upper’s overlays, and some lucky punters will get to slide their feet into Japanese cow liner. Underfoot, this Banned 1 features the unusual yet brilliant addition of Boost for added comfort.
