Create High-Quality Customs with These Accessories

Creating customs is a high-effort, time-consuming process. From making the initial design to preparing the shoe to implementing your design, the entire customization process can take a while. The last thing you want after spending all that time is for the final product to look bad or to be ruined by the weather.

In order to make sure your final design comes out right and to ensure that your customs are protected from the elements, make sure to pick up these materials and accessories.

Starter Kit

If you're new to making custom kicks, then you need to make sure you get started on the right foot by picking up the basic materials you need to make high-quality designs.

This starter kit will hook you up with 3 standard paints, acrylic finisher, a high-quality cleaning solution, leather preparer and deglazer, a cleaning brush, and a paint brush set.

Empty Paint Markers

For certain designs, you might find it easier to use a marker over a paint brush. It can be difficult to do outlines, detailing, and touch-ups -- especially for novices.

This empty, refillable paint marker set allows you to create your own custom markers to draw detailed designs. These feature a pump action valve which allows you to control the flow of the paint.

Check out this short tutorial to see how you can use these markers to make high-quality customs.

Masking Tape

Masking tape is a must-have for any custom artist. Masking tape will help you paint better lines without leaking onto areas of the shoe you don't want to paint.

Masking tape also needs to be tear-resistant and easy to remove without leaving any residue. New artists should be sure to add this vital product to their inventory before getting started on making customs.

Shoe Trees

If you want your shoes to last as long as possible, you need to pick up a pair of quality shoe trees.

Simply insert these into your shoes when you aren't wearing them to make sure they retain their shape. These are adjustable, so they're perfect for any shoe between sizes 6 and 13.

Also, you can use these when painting to make sure your shoes don't bend when trying to draw straight lines.

Mink Oil


For leather shoes, you need to pick up some mink oil to make sure they last as long as possible.

This product has been used for years to condition leather shoes and products while protecting them from stains and water damage. You can also use this on suede, nubuck, rough-out, vinyl, and plastic. Combined with the easy cleaner from the starter kit, this product will help make sure your customs last. Check out more of our cleaning products here.
