Every time emmanueLabor drops a pair of custom sneakers, you can see his mind at work. "Sure, I can change up the colors, but how can I put these over the top?" Whether it's adding real cereal or python details, you never know what to expect when the next eL project is unveiled.
This time around, eL drew inspiration from the two models that got him into collecting - the Air Jordan 4 and David Robinson's Nike Air Command Force. Using the "Cement" colorway as the base shoe, he added neon cement print to the lace tabs and midsole, flat grey on the heel tab and blue Jumpman branding. A custom eL patch is sewn on the tongue, which houses a fully functional pump system.
