From the ground up

Ben Baller, the plug’s plug, posted an all-black, custom pair of YEEZY Wave Runner 700s that are causing quite a stir on social media. Fans are applauding the paint job and hope to see the custom colorway become reality.

Judging by the photo’s tags, the customs were worked on by @beat2heatrestorations, who made the one-of-a-kind kicks for the famous jeweler.

However, this is not the first time all-black customs have popped up on social media, with blogger/stylist Scratchwear posting his pair over two weeks ago on Instagram (see below).

There are slight differences though, as Scratchwear chose to leave some orange details on the side of the heel, while Ben Baller’s pair is completely blacked out (save for the midsole).

Peep some more angles of Scratchwear’s pair below and then let us know if you want to see these colorways become reality in the comments.
