Bape X Air Jordan 1 Royal? Customs, Fakes Or Another Frankenstein Project

Sharing is caring!

There is no ending to the surprises in the Sneaker industry; collaborations have taken the game by a storm and endless projects are in the making. The other phenomena that is very swarming in the sneaker community these days is customs. I’ve come across some mind blowing customs-the well executed ones, they reflect the artist’s character ( attention to details, passion and perfection). This has also given rise to a new breed of fakes; the replica factories have gotten very smart. What they do is create hybrid sneakers with OEM materials and slap them with a custom tag; it doesn’t just stop there, they even go as far as creating collaboration sneakers that were never in the making, i.e. The Recent Air Jordan 1 Kaws that has surfaced.

I came across another one of those Frankenstein/ fake/custom , the Bape X Air Jordan 1 Royal. I don’t know if this is actually a shoe that will be launched officially ; but the images I saw very hideous. It wouldn’t come as a surprise though if in the weeks to come, Bape and JB decide to give the Royal 1 a makeover. Check the pictures below and let me know what your thoughts are on  these.
