Billy Hobbs, better known as truebluecustoms on Instagram, has taken inspiration from the KAWS x Air Jordan 4 and applied it to a custom pair of Air Jordan 8s. Donning the same grey hue as the original, the 8s get a slew of hands, fingers and double x’s in the form of embossing instead of the stitching featured on the original 4s. In addition, KAWS’ famed double x’s are painted onto the rear heel section. What’s worth mentioning is that the Cool Grey base pair seems to be the exact same AJ8s that DJ Khaled and Asahd previewed for us back in August.

Take a look for yourself at the KAWS-inspired Air Jordan 8 custom above and let us know what you think in the comments below. In case you missed it, the black “friends & family” edition of the KAWS x Air Jordan 4 does exist and Drake helped give us a closer look back in July.
