I've been posting pictures on my Instagram but never got around to… Continue reading “Us” Custom Converse + Air Jordan 1s for Jordan Peele

Arguably the greatest martial artist of all time,… Continue reading Bruce Lee “YOTD” Custom Lebron 8

This pair of custom Vans was painted for Skidmore Colleges "Polo by Twilight" charity auction. Not sure who had the winning bid, but I hope they are still wearing them today.
These are nowhere to be found on the Internet these days, so I thought I'd share with the community. They were posted on PIGMAG years ago, no idea who actually made them. Each panel/part of the shoes has its own layer so it makes designing a pair a lot easier and more fun. Click the… Continue reading Custom Sneaker Templates
