Based in downtown Los Angeles, the 'Shoe Surgeon' specializes is crafting custom footwear for men and women alike.

With its latest transformation, the company makes use of the Air Jordan 1 model. Although the red, black and white colorway makes the basketball sneakers standout on its own, the Shoe Surgeon's use of "red sueded gator and white python" material on the upper is what gives the remodel a truly exotic appearance.

This is finished off with a Swoosh logo that's made of black shark and leather laces that top it all off. While snakeskin uppers on footwear are a pretty common occurrence as of late, the varying textures of the Shoe Surgeon's creation, paired along with the vibrant colorway that draws more attention to it, makes it original.
