Just like every month, we've been tagged in hundreds of pictures from artists showing us what they've created with our paints. Unfortunately, we can't repost all of them, but we do try our best to highlight some of our favorites every week. So, here are some of our favorite customs that we've seen so far this October.

Rose-Covered Vans

Sponsored artist @chadcantcolor is up first with these rose-covered Vans. Vans might be one of the most versatile canvases for customs as these perfectly demonstrate. If you want to get started on your own rose-covered customs, you can start with some Angelus fire red paint and dark green paint.

Heat Air Force 1s


One of the cleanest pairs of Air Force 1s we've ever seen. The red, black, yellow, and white colorway created by @heatmcgee is perfectly executed. It can be hard to make Air Forces stand out as pretty much everyone owns a pair, but no one owns a pair quite like these. Pick up some flat black paint, red paint, and yellow paint to get started on a similar color scheme.

Supreme X Louis V Vans

Well, these Vans might not really be fit for Halloween, but they're way too clean to leave off this list. Custom artist @acm_allcolorsmatter put together his own Supreme X Louis Vuitton collab with these powder blue, purple, and pink Vans. Pick up some lilac paint, petal pink paint, and light blue paint for a similar colorway.

Patriots Fans

This one's for all you bandwagon fans. Next time we'll try to get a pair of Warriors customs for you. Sponsored artist @lucha_loafers shows off her insane talents with these incredibly detailed Patriots-themed customs. If you want to try making your own, you can start with some blue paint, red paint, and flat white paint.

Rick and Morty Jordan 4s

Lastly, we have everyone's favorite cartoon. These Rick and Morty retro 4s made by @mammothnamedjim showcase some of the show's most iconic characters next to a clean orange and blue color scheme. Replicating customs this detailed is going to be almost impossible, but you can pick up a 12 Color Assortment Kit if you want to give it a shot.

Hopefully, you enjoyed these customs as much as we did. If you want to check out more customs like these, you can head over to our Instagram. We repost new and interesting customs from artists around the country every day.
