Black Toe custom OG1...

Well I had faced the facts that I was not going to ever get a chance to own a pair of Original 1985 Air Jordan 1 black toes (first picture below shows a pair, obviously not mine). They are just too rare and I wont ever see my self paying $5000 for a pair of shoes. EVER!!! So, I did the unthinkable... I actually stripped and painted a pair of 1985 black and red 1s to resemble the black toe version. Only difference with mine is the fact that the real pair has a white tongue, mine has black. Although, it is rumored that a real, sample, pair from '85 is out there and does have black tongue. The smallest things can make the biggest differences when it comes to collectables...


Here is a pic, courtesy of Sunshining7, of a pair of real '85 black toes...



And my journey...
