WOW! These are definitely some of my super humble beginning work, but I lived for the trial and error, research and development days. These were a pair of my most favorite Retro Jordan 12s, and one of the rare pairs for me that didn’t include the elastic on the tongue, which meant there was no hassle at all. (Yes, I’m a details person, and it’s things like the elastic, and many other details that will remain unforgettable to me, and at times, even the smallest detail in a shoe could make it a great buy or deal breaker.)
Of course, with New Orleans yellowing out for their WHO DAT NATiON! Especially the plethora or black and gold combinations to be in good spirit for the New Orleans Saints great NFL team, to add gold to go along with the 90% black shoe felt like a no brainer. Still, for the most part I kept the shoe the natural nubuck black, and made the remaining details gold. With various layers of the shoe comes many different textures, and some materials might not look right, feel right, or even work right in certain sections of the shoe.
The added materials along the side upper sections of the Retro Jordan 12s were micro mini gold balls. They were semi hard to work with, lots of static, and hard to rearrange if there are areas that you need to fix. I haven’t working with the micro mini gold balls on any other project yet, but they are so koolz. The type of material still has puzzled me, I love a challenge and this was definitely it, especially once I finally wore them. Art without limits is what I’m after, and besides those micro mini gold balls, I’m more than sure that I’ll be finding more items to experiment with, and I’m looking forward to your suggestions in your ORDER.
