Custom Avatar Vans Tutorial + More Great Customs

Whether you're new to making customs or have been doing this for a while, there is always room for improvement -- that's why we collaborate with artists to create tutorials demonstrating a variety of design techniques and other tips and tricks.

This week, @mcvsso stopped by to customize a pair of Vans Slip Ons dedicated to the iconic show Avatar: The Last Airbender.

These customs feature some of the shows most popular characters, from Aang himself to his flying bison Appa, painted over a sky blue backdrop.

If you want to learn how to make these customs yourself, make sure to check out the full tutorial over on our YouTube channel.

Portrait work is one of the harder techniques to get down, but once you do, the results can be incredible.

If your dream shoe collab doesn't exist, why not make it yourself?

Sponsored artist @bbizon created these Yeezy x Off-White x Dior customs, featuring Dior branding on the upper and Off-White branded overlays.

If the Dior x Jordan 1 is any indication, then a collab of this caliber would easily cost thousands of dollars, so do yourself a favor and learn how to make your own luxury customs.

With the MLB restart already in danger of being shut down, these next customs might not get much use, but they're still some of the cleanest cleats we've yet to see.

Sponsored artist @truebluecustoms designed these custom cleats based on the classic Jordan 1 "Shattered Backboard," featuring the same black, orange, and white colorway.
