Sole Shots: Sneaker Customizer Edition

words // Nick Engvall

Each week we give a glimpse of the impressive sneaker photos from members of the Sole Collector Forums, in Sole Shots. This week we’re using Sole Shots to showcase a different type of creativity from the sneaker community, sneaker customizers.

As the sneaker community continues to grow, more and more people are looking for different ways to spice up their collections. Whether it be working with an experienced sneaker customizer like the ones whose work you see here, or by taking a more do it yourself approach with something like the jgoods sneaker customization kit, there are plenty of ways to get some totally unique kicks.

This week’s Sole Shots shows off a number of creative customs, from a mild color change to full on graphics, from a subtle logo change to full on reconstruction of materials. As you can see below, the inspirations for creative new designs is limitless, and can come from another famous sneaker colorway, an important memory, a favorite place, or anything else you can dream up.

Check out the unique designs below.
