This project was FULL of obstacles!

A couple months back we gave away $20K worth of prizes to one lucky winner! One of those prizes was a chance to design your very own one of one custom with none other than Vick Almighty! Jamaal entered the sweepstakes by shopping online at reshoevn8r.com, but the real catch is he didn’t even know that there was a sweepstakes going on! Talk about lucky!

After a few emails back and forth he still wasn’t sure this was even legit, but after a Zoom call with the man himself it was 100% proven that it was legit. The design process consisted of a few Zoom calls and an idea from the lucky winner. Jamaal was set on designing his very own Jordan 6, since it is his favorite Silhouette! IMO everyone thinks designing a sneaker is easy, but man it takes a lot of work to make sure you get exactly what you want.

These Jordan 6 “By You” customs feature all of the winners favorite colors, design elements and icons that are near and dear to his heart. Not only did he get to take home a pair of 1 of 1 customs, he took home EVERYTHING he could buy for $2K at 2 different local sneaker shops, a ton of Reshoevn8r products and took on his very first ever Sneakercon. All in all I’d say that was a pretty good weekend!

Back to the custom though, the obstacles were endless with this project. We ordered the Cool Grey Jordan 6 from eBay brand new… Finding a size 14 shoe locally wasn’t a possibility! After ordering from eBay we waited not 1, but 2 weeks for the seller to even ship them to be authenticated. PSA if you sell on eBay don’t wait to ship, you never know what that sneaker might mean to the person getting it!

After we got it then it was game time! We had only 72 hours to complete the project. Not to mention the tongue shield needed to take a trip to Las Vegas to get some assistance from @JordonDiab ! After hours and hours of painting, design and even calling in some reinforcements, Vick was able to meet that 72 hour deadline with ease…. Well kinda!

Then it was time to present the sneaker to Jamaal at Sneakercon Phoenix. Needless to say he was pretty excited!

Start painting and dyeing the sneaker we Got to prep the sneakers for this we're Going to be using some acetone and Cotton balls to wipe down the leather And the Midsoles Preer is complete before we start Painting we're back to deconstructing Using an xacto knife and a seam ripper We're going to remove the top part of The Tongue First color we're going to be laying Down is our Dusty Rose similar to the Color on these laces that we will be Using on these shoes we'll start off With these three colors then add some White to Lin up the color and we should Have the perfect mix with That paint is all mixed up it's going to Look beautiful on this white leather now This part is going to be the most timec Consuming part of this whole project I Don't want to risk not having the Project completed so for this I'm going To bring in my good friend Marx premium He does it all outside of videos on my Personal projects he's always helping me Out restoration and Customs you name it This is one of those projects where I'm Going to need some help what's up my Dude what's up bro let me show you a Quick layout of the custom we're working On so as you can see the uppers have a

Lot of dusty rose pink we got to lay all That down right now however we're going To split up into two different ways We'll hand paint it and airbrush it First we're going to go in with the Paintbrush do all the details for Example get as close as possible to the Sock laner without getting paint on the Sock laner we can't really do that with The airbrush same thing with the back Tabs as you can see there's some leather Back there we got to do that with the Paintbrush once we take care of all that We'll tape everything off and lay down The paint through the airbrush you good With that let's do it Cool just see this do like The reason why I'm hand painting near The sock liner first is because I want To get a crisp paint job in that area I Can never achieve that just by Airbrushing because the tape always gets In the way when I tape off the liner or It peels up in a small spot that causes Overspray on the liner to avoid all that I just hand paint then tape off Everything and airbrush the rest of the Paint Details are good to go we did a great Job I'm not getting any paint on the Sock liner or the heel tab next we're Going to do some taping before the Airbrushing all taped up let's finish Laying down our Dusty pink tone with the

Airbrush All right so I got the majority of the Paint down right now what I'm using is 2500 grit sandpaper to sand it all down To get it nice and smooth before we Apply one more coat of Paint paint drop is all done it's nice And smooth now we got to protect it by Going outside and spraying some Kon M Finish got all the tape off now let's Put the tape back On all taped up once again now we're on To the mols first we're going to be Laying down a black base coat before we Lay on the gold the reason why I lay Down black is because it's a good base For any metallic Color Time is running out I still have a few Hours left on this project and it needs To be done by tomorrow Steve just picked Up Jamal from the airport I really Wanted to be there but I got to get These customers done right now they're Heading straight to guest list to spend $1,000 that he want from the Streep Stakes First first round bro what you what you Feeling fam uh trophy room five like I See the price on that but that looks Dope I don't even have a Jordan 5 so That'll be my first and then the Jordan One low Zion that's going to be crazy so Those are the two one I'm looking at I
