We couldn’t wait to share this one with you! Today Vick is making custom shoes for Kid Cudi. Yes, that Kid Cudi. To celebrate his ongoing “To the Moon” tour including a stop in Phoenix, the Footprint Center reached out to Vick Almighty to see what he could come up with.
As we all know, Vick is the best in the game…but this custom for Kid Cudi was a big undertaking. When you’re working on a project for an artist this big it can be a little intimidating, but we know you’ll love what Vick came up with.
The base shoe for this custom was the Military Black Jordan 4, and the inspiration was taken from a few of Kid Cudi’s most popular albums, Man on the Moon: The End of Day and The Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager.
Vick employed a lot of different techniques and skills in order to make this custom for Kid Cudi. He started by dyeing the sneakers with Rit Dye, and then painted the different portions of the upper with gradient patterns to mimic Cudi’s album covers. He even made his own galaxy print which really set the midsole off.
Some of the awesome custom touches included tongue tags made by D-Nice Customs, laser engravings of Kid Cudi’s logo, and custom insoles to match.
The most time-consuming and coolest part of this Kid Cudi custom Air Jordan is the custom lighting that Vick installed inside of the Air unit. The LED lights inside of the Air bubble add so much to the “To the Moon” theme of the sneaker.
We think this custom Jordan for Kid Cudi turned out awesome! What’s your favorite part of this custom shoe? Would you buy these if you were given a chance?
