While customs have long been a part of sneaker culture — probably as long as there have been sneakers — in 2011 they truly took center stage.

As someone who has tried my own hand at customizing, I understand the painstaking effort that's involved, and wanted to show some love to those that do incredible work. I reached out to some of the best sneaker customizers in the game including JGoods and Mache to find out some of their favorites, as well as pairs that influenced them and their art. Without further ado, here's The 50 Best Custom Sneakers of All Time. —ANDY OLIVER
