New Customs to Close Out April

New Customs to Close Out April

It can be hard to come up with new designs for every pair of customs. Everyone needs a little bit of inspiration sometimes.

One of the best ways to get inspired is to take a look at some of the great designs other artists are working on. From color combinations to art styles and aesthetics, you should be able to take something away from these amazing customs created by some of our sponsored artists.

Stan Smiths have a classic silhouette and are a staple in a lot of people's closet. It's hard to improve on such a clean, simple shoe, but if you want a little bit more color, sponsored artist @swellguycustoms can walk you through how he made these customs Roy Lichtenstein Stan Smiths.

Check out the tutorial to see what supplies you need to get started.

Easter Air Forces

A bright pastel colorway might not be great for everyday wear, but it's perfect for Easter. If you're gonna go with a bold colorway like this, all-white Air Forces are probably the best canvas you can use.

Sponsored artist @tragik1993 designed these pair of Easter AF1s with all of the classic colors you probably associate with the holiday.

Pizza Hut Jordans

You can really take whatever theme you want and turn it into a pair of customs.

Look no further than these custom Pizza Hut Jordans by @astrotorfcustoms for proof. Pizza Hut's red and white color scheme is an all-time classic, and the red flat laces and pizza tag are the perfect toppings.

Custom Air Force 1s

You can do a whole lot by just redesigning a small part of the shoe. Altering the classic Nike Swoosh is a great way to customize a pair of AF1s without covering up the all-white colorway that makes them so popular in the first place.

We don't have a tutorial for this pair of customs, but sponsored artist @kingdom_made made a tutorial that'll show you how to get the woodgrain finish he used here. Check it out to see what tools you need to do it yourself.
