We’re pretty experienced with the Jordan 11, but there was one particular theme that we were dieing to do.
We got the call…FINALLY, someone wanted to do a matted out, military theme to their Jordan 11! We were waiting for a long time to find a customer to request this theme, I mean I’m talkin years. It was almost the same exact custom that we had in mind. Matte olive upper with a gum bottom and a matching jumpman on the sides. Needless to say, we couldnt wait to get started!
First things first, how do you achieve an absolute matted out finish when we’re so accustomed to seeing the super shiny, factory patent leather version floating around on 11s? Well, rather then describe it, we made a YouTube tutorial on it:
You can find all the items we used to paint the upper and the shoe laces below, we used, flat white, flat black, avocado Angelus Paint & Duller to get this color. If you’d like these paints, click on the link below:

We had to color match the upper, so in case youre wondering how we did that, here’s a tutorial on how to dye your laces to match a custom color like the olive green we did on these…
Lastly, we trusted Dark Knight Official and chose their Gum Brown sole dye to finish off the bottom icey sole. 4 layers of dye later, we had a completely solid gum bottom sole with a translucent look!
