When you mention Levis denim, it causes a retro spin. A classic infused with the iconic Jordan’s. Creativity at play. The backdoors are closed and as entertaining an egg and spoon race or a twerk off would have been, heres my creativity coming in to play. When you want to do something big, it takes time and effort. Here is a peek into my time and effort.
The journey of recreating the Jordan IV x Levis shoe began on Wednesday 10th January 2018. I was motivated to attempt a recreation when I saw the @offspringhq competition. I thought with doubt that perhaps I could recreate the actual shoe. I didn’t actually think it would work out. I spent hours coming up with a reliable method to recreate the shoe. I rummaged through my home to find materials. I improvised and began the journey of recreating. Some of the materials I found included a pair of Levi’s jeans and some random art and craft materials. I moulded the shape of the shoe and began the journey of assembling the pieces of denim, which I spent hours accurately cutting to shape and size. As I was working through the recreation, I was inspired further and ideas kept flooding through my mind. It was a surreal experience, from nothing I managed to create a shoe which I haven’t yet had an opportunity to see in person. I was overwhelmed with the finished product and carried on adding the little detail. I think the detail alone shows the time and effort I invested to create the shoe.
