Wish i lived in LA...Dope lil concept
 

 
I was looking for shoes out right now and didnt like what I seen. I wonderd what it could take to make your own and ran into this video from vice. dope lil watch. dude has a shop in L.A. where you can go learn to make customs form scratch.



another dope video that popped up after of another custom maker who blew up painting shoes.

i was more just jealous my city dont have this sh*t. im in major city so youd think maybe we have something like it...but na...my pops knows how to sew with the best of em tho. use to make his own sh*t in the 70s and my bro prom tux and my cousin interior. making shoes is another type of beast you need a lot of special tools and the materials they use they make sure you can get the exact same kind buy working with one provider and making sure they only make it for them... youd get close enough stuff but not exact all shoes makers do that and so do clothing or your just gonna be putting out lone sh*t every one can make. ive looked into sourcing shoes piece by piece and its not a market at all. never found one shred of evidence where to start beside making your own sh*t hand made. you think youd be able to find soles to work of off but ive never seen a icy blue or any thing worth while to be had piece by piece.. i wish.. if you know of anything id love to see it id fu*k with i and give it a shot.

Just Google shoemakers forum in Google. Or start your own group from the same type of search from YouTube. Never be afraid to reach out.

And I have to remind you, where your located DOESNT MATTER...unless your talking brick and mortar. ..the internet game is tether free.

There's a homie that's on here that is way further into the shoes than I am. @ no clue where he's from, but he has skills. Most of the tools you can get online, and there are a ton of videos on how to do it. I was making luxury bags and I was trying to get into sneakers but could get there. I'll PM you with some info on tools. Can't lie the sh*t ain't cheap.

@seatownslayer

good look @sick flair

def not a cheap hobby at all. there are plenty of sources out there for material but be careful cause its alot of wolves out too that will try to take advantage of you being new and sell you things at an inflated price. check out my ig and feel free to hit me up if u got any questions.

also dont post ur best ideas online, big companies watching.. heres a pair i did last year that got slept on but its cool when nike does it.



vs (shoe of the year they say)
