PMK Customs Discuss Designing Sneakers for Jay Z and LeBron James

You might know PMK Customs for their 1-of-1 sneakers that are remixed versions of popular silhouettes with luxury leathers and exotic animal skins. Or because celebrities and athletes such as Jay Z, Beyoncé, LeBron James, and (soon) Tristan Thompson have worn the design team's custom kicks at high-profile events.

Andre Scott and Kelton Crenshaw of PMK Customs got together with Bleacher Report and chatted about what it's like to work with such high-profile clientele, and, surprisingly, they're not starstruck at all. For example, they designed the "Brooklyn Zoos," an Air Jordan I with nine different animal skins, for Jay Z along with a pair of Isabel Marants for Beyoncê.

But after making two pairs of Balenciaga Arenas for LeBron, the guys are focused on the sneakers Tristan Thompson will wear during opening night of the NBA season. Right now, they're designing a couple different options for Thompson. And in the interview, they even referenced that Thompson was salty about only being number four on Complex's The 25 Best Dressed Athletes Right Now.

Let's pray that these sneakers hit the court, and aren't just for wearing into the arena. Click here to watch the video.
