I’ve received tons of questions over the last few years so I’ll answer the most common ones as best I can.
If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
I want you to have the most awesome, best looking shoes around so I work with you every step of the way to make sure I realize your exact vision.
It all starts with an idea. It can be a fully realized plan or just a tiny inkling.
Then you fill out this form so I can see what you have in mind.
Next I put your idea on paper using printed Sneaker templates to create a rough draft.
From there I make revisions until your exact idea is realized. Paint doesn’t touch a sneaker until it’s exactly what you want.
Next, the painting begins.
I will send you daily updates on your customs until it is complete. Changes can still be made at this point.
Finally, your sneakers are finished and shipped off to you.
The process generally takes 3-6 weeks. I have a full-time job and work 5 days a week so painting is designated to the night hours.
Painting also depends on my commission schedule. I usually have a few projects going on at once so it might take longer than 3-6 weeks.
If you need the sneakers in a shorter period of time, please let me know when you order. I will do my best to get them to you in the shortened time frame.
I’ve received numerous questions over the years about the types of paints I use and how I get the paint to not fade/crack/peel off.
I use a combination of Angelus Leather Paint (specifically designed for customizing and restoring sneakers) and other assorted acrylic paint (Liquitex, Americana, Golden).
Acrylic paint dries like plastic and is extremely difficult to remove once it sets.
I generally start with a white under coat mixed with Golden GAC900 which is a medium designed to modify paints for use on fabric.
From there, it’s all about layering. Multiple layers are added to create the desired colors.
After the painting is done, I use an acrylic sealant to provide a clear, protective cover to the paint.
The sneakers are then waterproofed and boxed to be shipped out.
I accept payment through PayPal and Etsy.
Please let me know if you wish to pay directly through PayPal and I will provide you with a receipt and my PayPal link.
♠ Are they Waterproof? ♠
Absolutely! I’ve been wearing some of my own designs for 4 years now and they still look as good as the day they were painted.
While they are waterproof, I don’t recommend swimming or puddle jumping with them on.
I use USPS for all of my shipping needs.
The sneakers will be shipped in their original packaging unless stated otherwise.
♠ Where do you ship to? ♠
Anywhere in the world! I’ve shipped to Canada, South America, Europe, and Australia in the past.
Shipping will be more expensive outside of the United States but I will make sure that the sneakers find your home!
♠ Tracking ♠
USPS tracking numbers will be provided with your shipment.
Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of sneaker customization, I cannot accept returns or offer exchanges on items so
PLEASE make sure of your sneaker size before ordering!
Also, make sure you choose the right gender.
I have provided sizing charts below.
Converse also tend to run large so if you foresee an issue please try them on beforehand. I don’t like playing guessing games.
