Inspiration can come from anywhere or anybody if you choose to open up your mind. These Gucci colorway Retro Jordan 12s were random, and since I had just finished an actual pair of Gucci shoes, and I had recently seen a few other shoe versions, I figured that there can never be enough Gucci inspired anything. The more comfortable I have become, it begins to just be about practice makes perfect. Everything about this outcome to me is a reflection of some great research and development.
Details! Details! Details! They make a difference both big and small to me. Yes giving details are more time consuming, but in the long run I see the bigger picture. I’m an artist, and just like a great movie, you watch it more than once you’ll recognize something that you missed before, and now the appreciation grows. Black nubuck can become very dusty, and I wanted to try a different look on them. I’ve never seen Retro Air Jordan 12s released with the bottom arch fiberglass anything besides the checkerboard look combination so I just switched it up to see. I made the accent stitching Gold, and I added gold eyelets to each shoelace section of the shoe, never seen on this type of shoe yet, and I wanted to see. The laces were the originals put back in with added Gold aglets to the shoelace tips. The Air Jordan logo on the upper shoelace openings were changed from Silver to Bright Red matching the order red sections of the shoe. Lastly, if it was going to really be a Gucci colorway, then some green needed to be added, and just to continue it unexpected, I brought back some shimmer, and it still gives a unisex impression which works for me. This could’ve had many different combos, and I’m sure you have one in mind, I’ll look for your ORDER.
