Yes, finally to the in depth details of these custom hot pink Retro Jordan 11s. This project demanded so much time because there were so many different elements to it. It’s hard for someone to understand allz the steps that go into making something look easy, but it’s where the problem comes if you’re like me and refuse to deliver garbage.
Just taking a look at the original shoes, they were all white with an orange sole. Now, if you know anything about rubber, and even a little sneakerhead history, you would know that clear soles are always the easiest to color change. With that being said, to paint a surface that will be in direct contact with the ground in various elements, if you don’t have the knowledge to support what will work, then once these shoes are delivered to the customer, then the paint on the bottom of the shoe will be off the very first time they wear them guaranteed, and that’s not a positive guarantee.
Also, the other surfaces were more cloth and the popular patent leather uppers above the midsole. For each different layer of material there was a different type of hot pink that was needed to go onto the surfaces for them to remain permanent. One thing I have learned, especially from Nike themselves, is that it is not always a perfect color match up close and personal, but the look from feet away will make them blend. At the time, I can honestly say that it was a headache with not first paying attention to that.
The only piece on the low top Retro Jordan 11s was going to be the midsole, so I tapped it off so that it could remain white. Also, when it comes to the inside of the shoe, the colors have to seep through the layers because if it dries and isn’t deeply through then just like carpet, everything will be at the bottom and the surface will look like nothing is there. So the wait time between drying to add more layers onto various parts of the shoe is another thing where time needs to sufficient, or paying more for us to use different tools for rush orders are the only options to keep work up to ONE in Emilien standards.
Overall, these now all hot pink & white low top Retro Jordan 11s were more memorable for the way I recharged the process of my business than the actual come out itself. The level up has been amazing because artistic growth should never stop, and iM on board and ready for any new challenges that you are ready to give me when you’re ready to ORDER.
