Sneaker customizer Mache has a reputation for being next level with his projects, and his various LeBron 9 concepts may top the list of his best work to date. He's back at it again, this time giving us a look at a pair he likes to call "Sprite Nights."
This custom, of course, blends the concepts of the "Sprite" and "Miami Nights" colorways of the LeBron 8 V/2 Low. The base shoe, a Foamposite-based iD, has been colored up in royal and neon tones with a starry print throughout the upper. Perhaps not coincidentally, the print also gives off the feel of the bubbled fizz you see when you pop open a fresh can of Sprite. White works the Swoosh logos and midsole, while neon appears on the inner lining, laces, Max Air bag and outsole.
According to Mache, the "Sprite Nights" are a 1-of-1 made for the son of late hip hop legend Guru. We're sure his inbox is getting quite a bit of action anyways. Check out a few photos below and shoot Mache a follow @MACHE275 on Twitter and Instagram for much more.
