Today we have a dope custom inspired by “Woody,” no not Buzz Lightyear’s friend but the actual texture of wood like on trees and most fences. Ruovo Co. took these Air Jordan XI’s and instead of just throwing on some crazy colors and fabrics the team decided to go full-on with the wood theme. A cream color takes on the outsole on the bottom of the kicks while a flat brown midsole sits below the extremely detailed wood that looks so good you could probably lose them on your coffee table. A darker brown finishes up the upper while rope laces and another wood panel on the tongue cap off a great, intricate design.
