Sneaker artists have been very busy over this past month creating a variety of unique custom designs. From Maleficent AF1s to Fresh Prince Vans, we've picked some of our favorite customs from the past few weeks to share with the Angelus community.
Whether you're looking for inspiration for your next project, or you just want to check out some original artwork, check out our custom sneaker spotlight below.
Maleficent Air Force 1
Sponsored artist @kingdom_made brought Maleficent to life with these custom Air Force 1s based on Disney's fairy villain.
These customs feature a black and white base colorway, Maleficent portraits on the middle panel, and ghost flame effects across the background and Swooshes.
Mountain Bike AF1
@tazz.customs created these custom Air Force 1s using real parts from a mountain bike to create some one-of-a-kind details.
Real bike tires were used to replace the quarter panels and tongue tags, and the artist replaced the aglets with tire valves. The base of the shoe features an abstract mountain and forest-themed painting with mountain bike details.
Fresh Prince Slip-On Vans
Did you catch The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion?
Sneaker artist @o.worthen painted these custom slip-on Vans and matching overalls in honor of the classic 90s sitcom. Each piece features a cartoon portrait of either Will or Carlton and includes other details pulled from the show, including the show's logo across the chest of the overalls.
Thanksgiving Jordan 13
Thanksgiving might already be in the rearview mirror, but with Bam Adebayo recently signing his max extension, now's a great time to bring back these Thanksgiving throwbacks designed by sponsored artist @solesbysir.
Personally designed for Bam, these customs feature fall colors and leaves painted across the base with a cartoon turkey painted on top.
SpongeBob Old Skool Vans
@mcvsso designed these custom Old Skool Vans, dedicated to one of the most influential cartoons of all time.
These SpongeBob SquarePants Vans feature SpongeBob and Patrick painted on the toe boxes, Squidward and Plankton on the middle panels, beach and ocean patterns on the base, and other details pulled from the Bikini Bottom universe.
