The Shoe Surgeon is back with another striking sneaker custom that centers upon the Air Jordan 1 “Banned” silhouette. This isn’t the first time that the Los Angeles-based craftsman has put his creative touches on the notorious hi-top model. In fact, he produced a red python and black nubuck Horween iteration of the shoe last August. This time, however, the AJ1 receives a much fancier construction with pony hair hide fabric swathed across the entire upper of the sneaker.

Check out the custom above and head over to The Shoe Surgeon’s Instagram account to view more designs.
