Since offering our creation service to customers, we have been inundated with requests to match hoods to sneakers.
For the 'Miami Vice' hood our customer brought to us a pair of Jordan 5 Black/Pink/Citrus Orange. (By far one of my favourite Jordan 5s of the modern era, but unfortunately a GS only release).
Like the sneaker, we decided on working around a black base, with pink and orange detailing to match the midsole. Rather than going for totally obscure detail or complete overkill, we decided to split either sleeve of the hood in two using neon lamb nappa leathers that perfectly complimented the colours on the sneaker.
To complete the design, the sleeves were finished with red ribbing and silver riri zippers in order to recreate the effects of the jumpman lacelock and that fresh icey sole.
Final item specification:
- Black loopback cotton body
- Neon pink lamb nappa leather upper sleeve
- Neon orange lamb nappa leather lower sleeve
- Red sleeve cotton ribbing
- Front heavy duty silver riri zipper
- Silver sleeve riri zippers
