Nate Robinson is one of those NBA players that not only appreciate sneakers for how they perform on the court, but also the history behind them.
A huge Air Jordan fan, Robinson is living the dream as a member of the Chicago Bulls in the sense that he can lace up any Air Jordan silhouette and have it match his uniform. After exhausting multiple options this season, Nate Robinson called on popular sneaker customizer Mache (pronounced MOSH) to custom color some of his favorite Air Jordan models. On four pairs of Jordans, Nate Robinson commissioned Mache Customs to make classic Air Jordan models work with the Bulls uniform in custom color combinations.
For the Air Jordan VI, an entirely red upper was done with hits of white seen on the toecap and smaller midsole panels. A more subtle detail of this custom Jordan VI are the red monochromatic textured laces. One of the two Jordan XIIIs adds a twist to the ‘He Got Game’ XIII that dropped a few weeks back by painted the white dimpled leather panels red. The second custom Air Jordan XIII for Robinson is similar to the first by having the white upper of the red suede-midsoled ‘Chicago’ Jordan XIII painted red. All of this sits ontop of black paw-shaped outsole.
Mache also did a pair of the Air Jordan XI in an entirely black colorway that isn’t pictured individually but can be seen behind the other three pairs of Jordans in the first picture.
Nate has good taste with his Air Jordan model selection to get customs of, we’ve had the Air Jordan VI, Air Jordan XIII, and Air Jordan XIII on our list of the 23 best Air Jordans of the 1990s & the 2000s 23 best Jordans list respectively.
