This pair from Nike x sacai are given a new look by @alexanderjohndesign with a precisely taped design and a reversed logo. ⁠The design on the logo and mudguard used tape to create an intricate pattern. The red Nike and logo add some color to this black and white shoe.

Sneakers on the half shell? Cowabunga dudes! @astrotorfcustoms creates a Ninja Turtles inspired pair of customs that features realistic shell detailing that even has the shine and texture of turtle shell (or at least an animated one). The light green uppers and soles are the perfect compliment for this turtle themed look.

Sponsored artist @bbizon took inspiration from the Disney canon and couldn't seem to pick just one character to highlight. From Nemo to Winnie the Pooh, these custom sneakers feature everyone's favorite Disney character. With so many characters to paint a set of Angelus Micro Detail Paint Brushes are a great choice for making sure every detail is perfect.
