After making JBF one of the most respected brands in sneaker customization, Jake Ferrato isn't resting on his laurels.

Today, Ferrato unveiled his own leather high-top, which is based on a previous sketch he drew. Like the popular customs, Ferrato's new model is constructed with a range of premium materials and finished off with an imported Italian sole.

In the caption posted along with the photo, he stated, "Original silhouettes have been my ultimate goal for years, and my skills are finally catching up to my ambition."

Ferrato also acknowledged that the first pair isn't perfect and was made using scrap leather from other projects. However, he will refine the design, and customers will soon be able to order a pair with their preferred materials for $1,000.

Original silos are a great step in the progression of sneaker customization. And it provides a creative individual like Ferrato with a bigger platform to express his talent. Not only can he transform your favorite Air Jordans, but he can sketch and produce his own designs. Just another reason to be excited about the future of sneakers.
