From the subtle white webbing to the Spiderman profile in that classic red on the heel, these custom Jordan 1s are all about the details. With most of the design dominating the heel, @camcreatez helps keep the composition balanced with a spider logo in grey on the toe.

It's Winnie the Pooh for the win with these custom Vans by @sayjoyyllc. Using a combination of airbrushing and hand-painting, Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore and Piglet stand out a on a blue honeycomb stencil background. Yellow hand-painted honey dripping off the opening and eyelets has an almost 3D looking effect with the right shading in white.

Sponsored artist @enzohkim took this pair of Air Force 1s and turned them into a celebration of all things End of Evangelion by covering them in all the classic characters. Purples and blues from the uppers to the midsole make the design on these shoes standout. While we must note that Angelus does not recommend painting the rubber midsoles on shoes you are going to wear, these customs would make a great collectible for any End of Evangelion fan.
