Daniel and Dillon Dejesus are the brothers that make up Chicago based Dejesus Customs. Started in 2011, they've made a name for themselves in the sneaker world. With backgrounds in visual arts and design they bring their expertise to creating some of the most creative customs around.
Their work can often be seen on the field, as their custom cleats are a favorite of many NFL players. They also have a popular YouTube channel where they share tutorials showing just how they create their popular designs.
Here are some of their latest designs and the Angelus Direct products they use to create them.
These custom Detroit Pistons Jordan 3’s take inspiration from one of their all time favorite NBA Jerseys. Featuring the Pistons logo and a mesh style design on the uppers in grey and turquoise, this design uses a multi-layer stencil to get all the elements right.
Speaking of sports cleats are one of their specialties and these cleats prove the point. These pairs for Quandre Diggs of the Seattle Seahawks take two different, but similar approaches in terms of design. One plays with a repeating swoosh in white, neon green and navy, while the other combines a fade on on the toe and heel with a graphic white design.
Athletics aren't the only place they get inspiration. These Matisse paper cut inspired customs have an artistic touch in all white and blue. With the blue figures on the uppers and soles, this design dominates the shoe. A blue accent on the heel compliments the design.
