Custom Sneaker Spotlight: January 2023

Jan 20, 2023

The New Year has officially settled in, and customizers across the world have wasted no time in creating their first custom shoes of the year. As you're about to see, we're nothing but impressed.

Custom Painted Nike Dunk White Pomelo

Nike Dunk “White Pomelo” by @enzohkim

Angelus Sponsored Artist Enzo took inspiration from the nature directly around him in his latest custom shoes, the Nike Dunk “White Pomelo”. The influence of the citrus fruit is seen in the color choice, as well as the way that the colors are blended together. Mainly known for his detail-oriented, anime-inspired customs, this shoe is definitely the start of a great new era for Enzo. We can't wait to see what he creates next.

Step into your own magic carpet ride with these beautiful custom-made shoes, featuring Aladdin and his cast of friends! On the right shoe is Jasmine, Abu and our hero himself. Don't forget to make a wish as you slip on the left shoe featuring the Genie and Lamp. Who knows what kind of exciting adventures await?!

Hand Painted Custom He-Man Air Jordan 1

He-Man Air Jordan 1 by @colormefresh

Step into the world of He-Man and The Masters of the Universe with these unique AJ1s. Inspired by Castle Grey Skull and Snake Mountain, they've been designed in a classic 80’s cartoon style. Lava from both castles flows across this one-of-a kind pair, lit up by an orange lava glow effect on the outsoles (hand painted too!). Get ready to hit those streets looking like you just stepped out of Eternia! Angelus Sponsored Artist @colormefresh really brought back some memories with these ones.

These one-of-a-kind shoes are sure to turn heads, and they have us quite excited for what's to come throughout 2023. Follow along with more of our favorite custom work on Instagram @angelusdirect.
