When custom kicks turn out looking trashier than the original, I become a harsh critic, but that is not the case with these orange peel Adidas sneakers by 'dancretul.' These things are not only super dope, they smell as good as they look.

When I first heard of the orange peel Adidas sneakers, I was highly skeptical. Really? Custom kicks with fruit as the main ingredient. Traditional Adidas shell-toes are a classic shoe that have been custom tailored time and time again, usually with poor results. How do you build on perfection? Well, thinking outside of the box is a good start. This fresh take on the DIY shoe goes a step further and just straight up uses items found at your local market. The round shape of the skin, combined with its malleable characteristics, make for easy application. However, concern should be considered due to the fact that orange peels dry up quickly.

Regardless of longevity, these orange peel Adidas are an innovative take on shoe design and utilize materials that you would never find at your favorite sneaker shop.
