Decay Air Force 1 Low

These were done as a personal order for a friend of mine and I have to say I am very happy with the outcome. I know I know white / white base shoe but you work with what you have and there are still definately ways to make it work.

Concrete Cobalt Stabs Banned in UK due to violence?

A recent article in 'The Times' explains that Nike is withdrawing the infamous retro 'Air Stab' from shelves due to an increase in knife attacks. There is a slightly humerous side to this horrible situation however, and that is that they used the 'Concrete Cobalt' Air Stab I painted with UHF of NZ in the article. Of all the stabs out there they use these, classic. Anyways here is a link to the article.

Swamp Thing Dunk High

Here are the new ‘Swamp Thing’ customs based on the graphic novels by Alan Moore. Sometimes when painting a custom it takes on a life of its own and this was definitely one of those occasions. The amount of time, detail and planning required for this pair was not expected when I began them over a month ago. They break numerous standard custom conventions but if you look at them as a piece of ‘artwork’ rather then a “standard” shoe you would see on a shelf in a sneaker store then they make more sense atheistically.

This pair was done for myself and as such will not be for sale but will travel to a few different exhibitions so you guys can check them out in person because these photos do not really do them justice. Dates and exhibitions will be posted as they come up. There was a strong focus on the shadows of the vines and roots as well as the depth of ground behind the vines and flowers.

So without further delay here are the flicks.
