I have to be frank: I really don't care much for custom sneakers. Give me something off the shelf of the local sneaker store, and the only alteration I'll make to them is when I clean them every so often. Other than that, I don't want anyone to paint or rework what I've purchased.
Sneakers such as the Air Force 1, Nike Dunk, and any pair of Air Jordans have become popular canvases for sneaker customizers, mainly because they're readily available and fairly simple in design. Rarely is it seen that more limited releases have been given facelifts through one-of-one designs. But the adidas Yeezy Boost is a rare exception. It feels like every other day a new pair of custom Yeezys are popping up, and — somehow, someway — it works.
The likes of Mache, The Shoe Surgeon, and even Chris Brown have worked on the Yeezy Boosts, and these are the best customs we've seen so far.
