Air Jordan IV (4) “NS Graffiti” Customs by Ruovo Co.

Sneaker Files - 2 hours 17 min ago

Graffiti is to the art world what custom shoes are to the footwear industry, wouldn't you agree? The history of graffiti is rooted in the art of conveying everyday life in an artists' community, pulling inspiration from everything around them. Sneaker artists do just the same, only with unconventional canvases. Even Nike dropped a released a pair of graffiti-inspired Lebron XI (11), early this year. These next pair of customs don a graffiti theme that incorporates a lot of throwback influences for Ruovo Co. The Air Jordan IV (4) "NS Graffiti" customs by Ruovo Co. have an all over, collage mural with a wide range of bright colors and tones throughout the shoes. From a quick glance, you can see the graffiti artwork done by Ruovo features a small Kermit The Frog portrait, sci-fi aliens, and vivid zig-zag striping that covers the panels, in addition to more swirls of color. Providing a nice frame-like quality are the white soles that take their place on the bottom of the shoes. The white outsole grounds the entire pair of shoes nicely, while pops of red, yellow, and purple compete for attention on the busy uppers. Super sick idea, the artwork is mad nuts! Check out some extra shots of these kicks below, and be sure to check out Ruovo Co.!

Sneaker Files - 2 hours 17 min ago

With growing suspicions that a Pantone AJ11 model will drop this year, sneakerheads are growing restless trying to find samples of the kicks and a solid release date. Hold tight, young grasshoppers, more info is to come- including more on the Columbia AJ11 rumors that have surged throughout the online sneaker community (And it'll all be right here, on Sneakerfiles). While we await more news, Artistic Soles memeber, Ceesay14 has stepped up to the plate of accepting the challenge of a Pantone inspired custom. The Air Jordan VI (6) "Pantone" customs by Ceesay14 feature uppers completely covered in the bright, sky blue tone, with white soles on the bottom. These are pretty simple customs, but damn ... Don't your eyes just gravitate towards them? The lacing coordinates perfectly with the shade of blue used all over the shoe, providing that monochromatic touch that sneakerheads are craving so bad! The crispness of the white soles are the perfect foundation for such a bright model, as well. Would these Pantone AJ6's be something you would want to cop from Jordan Brand? Scroll for views of the Pantone AJ11 samples and let us know which ones you're feeling more!
