Ever since adidas employee @c2customs shared an image of his blacked-out Ultra Boosts in May, sneakerheads far and wide have tried their hands at emulating the murdered out look, mostly to mixed results. Thankfully, sneakerhead named Rew Bui took it upon himself to share a step-by-step guide that even the most novice of customizers should be able to keep up with.

For starters, you'll need a pair of "Black" Ultra Boosts, a can of Plasti Dip spray, masking tape, paper, and an X-Acto knife. 

Now that you've gathered your materials, you'll want to start by masking the entire upper of the shoe with your paper and tape. "Make sure you overlap the Boost material and the upper part of the shoe with tape, not paper," Bui wrote.


Once they're fully covered, it's time to begin the application. "At first it didn't look like it would cling to the boost material, just make sure you get go over everything nice and evenly," Bui said.

After you're finished spraying, you'll want to start removing the masking while the paint is still wet. Waiting until it becomes dry can make this a complicated, messy process, and no one wants that.

And finally, the finished product. Unlike certain paints that have been used on the Ultra Boost, the customizer says these have held up well throughout weeks of use thanks to the Plasti Dip. "I'm happy with the results and it is lasting longer than I expected," Bui writes.
