AKIRA CUSTOM X LANCE MOUNTAIN X NIKE SB X AIR JORDAN 1

These limited edition AJ 1 SB features a painted upper that peels away once skated, so I decided to not wait till you skate to remove the paint and add some silhouette graphics. Utilizing stencils and acetone, I removed the paint to formulate a theme from my favorite anime "Akira". The logo placements on the front toe box area is from Shotaro's motorcycle. While the back portions of the sneaker show the apocalypse of Tokyo from Akira's powerful psychic abilities. You can also see pictures of Tetsuo and Shotaro on each side of the side front tabs. I'm usually "adding" paint to a sneaker, so It was a fun challenge to removed paint to create my vision.
