Dominic Chambrone, better known as The Shoe Surgeon, is so stranger to sneaker customs, and his latest work flawlessly shows off his wealth of experience. Taking the adidas Originals NMD C1, The Shoe Surgeon elevates the smart silhouette to a whole other level.
Constructed of a vintage dark green Gucci leather purse, the iconic ‘GG’ monogram logo is embossed throughout, whilst vintage brown Nile crocodile leather elegantly drapes across the upper. The Gucci purse was deconstructed and repurposed, creating an authentic custom with the luxurious finish we’ve all come to expect from The Shoe Surgeon.
But wait, there’s more. This masterpiece also contains a few intricate details such as purse handles on the heels and the bag’s interior lining within the interior of the shoe. However, that’s where the good news kind of ends, as unfortunately, these Gucci x adidas Originals NMD C1 customs were a one off production, created for a private client who even provided their own sneakers for the job, so us mere mortals have no chance of copping a pair.
