That’s Baller: Instagram Artist Designs Air Jordan 1s With Over 15,000 Crystals; A Pair Will Cost  Buyers $6,500

An Instagram artist’s love for #MichaelJordan’s Air Jordan 1s just got taken to a new level.

 

#DanielJacob, whose handle is @thedanlife on Instagram, makes a living off of crafting sculptures of classic Air Jordan’s amongst other things.

 

The artist most recently set a bar for himself after he designed his first-ever wearable, made-to-order Air Jordan 1s with over 15,000 Swarovski crystals covering them.

 

“My work for a long time was sculpture, and my large Air Jordan sculpture was mistaken by many as wearable, and I received hundreds of requests in the last year. So much demand,” Jacob told Footwear News. “But I finally decided to do a mini-launch in my favorite color of my favorite Jordans, the Pinnacle.”

The sneakers, he calls the limited edition Air Jordan “Golds,” will run you about $6,500, and each Swarovski crystal is hand placed by Jacob. Each pair takes about three weeks to complete.

 

Jacob’s Air Jordan “Golds” are now available under first-come, first served terms.
