Lebron X Customs for Witness History Philippine Tour


witness-history-cover

July 23, 2013 is one of the most if not the most remarkable day for Filipino basketball enthusiasts. On this day, 4-time MVP and basketball superstar Lebron James visits the Philippines for the first time as a part of his Witness History tour sponsored by the leading shoe brand Nike.

To kick-off this exceptional event, Nike commissioned some of Manila’s most talented artist, musicians, and designers to customize a pair of size 16 (King James’ actual size) Lebron X. The designers were told to take Nike’s campaign #WitnessHistory in consideration for their pieces. Their design should be derived and inspired from anything that relates to Lebron.

The shoes are displayed at Nike Flagship Store, Bonifacio High Street up until today only. But don’t you worry folks; will give you a glimpse of these babies. Sneakerheads, brace yourselves for this gnarly collection.

Can you tell that the shoes were designed for a limited time only? Not to mention, all of them are not really shoe customizers. Pressured but determined, all of the designers seem to pull it off without a hitch. All of them should be commended not only for this awesome set of Lebron X Customs but also for an additional delight as we Witness History.

Some of the designers made a blog post, an insight on how they went through this project.
Here are some that I found online:
