The Crying Jordan meme has become inescapable in 2016 with everyone who takes a tough loss quickly having their head replaced with the face of a weeping Michael Jordan online.

Clever artists Sherman Winfield and Andrew Weiss have decided to merge the internet phenomenon with Jordan’s famed Air Jordan sneakers for a pair of custom Air Crying Jordan VIIIs

​The new take on the shoe looks to be built off of the black and red playoff colorway of the iconic sneaker and features the Crying Jordan face replacing the Jumpman logo on the tongue and insole of the kicks.

The pair describe themselves as sneaker collectors and have promised Crying Jordan updates to other models of the legend's eponymous sneakers in the coming weeks at their website, CryingKicks.com

There is no sale information on the website, but you can be sure the always ravenous desire for the most exclusive Jordans will push the price for these sky high if they ever hit the market.
