Renowned jeweler Greg Yuna, aka Mr. Flawless, has once again turned another classic silhouette into a piece of jewelry. This time around, Mr. Flawless reimagines Virgil Abloh‘s OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Jordan 1.
This stunning Air Jordan jewelry – a set of blinged-out sneaker pendants were unveiled few days ago during the 2018 Men’s Fashion Week in Paris.
This dazzling pendant is finished in Abloh’s original red, white, and black “The Ten”, Virgil’s “AIR” branding on the side of the shoe, as well as “SHOELACES” featured on the laces, among other design details.
Greg Yuna, aka Mr. Flawless, is an entrepreneur and custom jeweller to celebrities like Drake, Floyd Mayweather Jr and Meek Mill. The 35-year-old bling specialist first got his start in his industry as a salesman in 2009 and eventually found his way into the world of custom jewelry. Yuna first got into the game at the behest of his mother, who urged him to get off the couch and go help out at his uncle’s jewelry business in Manhattan’s Diamond District.
After grinding it out for a couple of months for the wage of $70 a day, Yuna was ready to call it quits. Luckily, his uncle pleaded him to stick around, and Yuna began to see potential when high profile customers like Fabolous and 50 Cent started to come through the shop on the regular. He’s been there ever since.
Yuna’s passion for footwear eventually led him to create his first sneaker piece, a Converse Chuck Taylor pendant. “I ended up selling it off my neck,” Yuna says. “I just made things that I thought I would wear.”
