installment of the sonic customs of the year. Defentily has been "The Year Of The Hedgehog" My client wanted these
for her son featuring Sonic and his transformation into Super Sonic. Working with the same base dunk hi, the colorway I chose for these were
completing free for me to come up with. To set them apart from the other
sonic kicks, I picked the baby Tiffany blue and sky gray. Adding a
accent of red is only fitted plus leaving the toe box dark blue fit the
hyper yellow tone of super sonic pretty well.

I painted theses for my youngest son who is 2yr. I was looking for a fun
but detailed idea for these shoes so i thought to use the chip design
of a circuit board. Painted in Gift box blue, Light green, and Gold on a toddlers sized Jordan.

One of my latest to get completed. (all caps) SUPER SAIAYAN AF1'Sssssssss. I did these pair for my son who is a huge DBZ fan. Taken advantage of the classic af1 that use to be the number 1 go to shoe to customize on back in the day, i knew i had to kill it. Anything less just wouldn't do. Painting SSJ3 Goku on one shoe and Kid Buu on the other was the perfect match.... literally lol. If you do a little browsing online you may find all the DBZ fan are have the Z fighter in outer space backgrounds. which is why i chose the scene from the planet of the Kai's for mine. you gotta say unique in every piece of art you put out. as a Bonus to his gift i got him and actual full scale Dragon ball. not bad, not bad.

more kids sonic themed shoe completed. These were for a client who
wanted to have these shoes done for his son. His birthday is was within
weeks of taking the order. (Can you say crunch time lol) got them
completed one day before the party just in time to Express mail them so
his son would have a Great one of a kind gift. With all the popular
sonic themed shoes floating around my site lately he
found an idea that his son would love. I chose a base shoe i was
familiar with and I switched up the colors for that 1 of 1 touch. Using a
New color called dark Tiffany blue w/matching laces, makes the overall
sneaker pop. Fianlly, At request he wanted me to add his son's name to one of the
shoes for a really personal feel.

Hey everyone, posting these custom sonic themed dunks I finished
for one of my return customer. It seems lately i've been getting tones
of request for Sonic the Hedgehog shoes this year, (its okay... ill be
dubed the sonic customizer lol) But these really excited me. Well for
one they didn't feature Sonic at all lol. Their his counter parts Shadow
and Silver the Hedgehog. My customer is somewhat of a collector of
sonic memorabilia, and wanted to have another -VS- pair done for his
collection. So i guess its safe to say, they most likely wont ever be
worn. which is okay with me, i still make sure every pair i do is 100%
wearable even if it'll just sit on display
okay to start off, going with a silver and black theme to match the colors of the two characters, I used silver for the toe and silver and black for the infamous checker board pattern. First we'll start with Silver the Hedgehog, I chose this pose because one of his main powers is telekinetic ability's where he has a glow of light which flows from his gloves. To add to that detail i actually made the rings on his gloves glow n the dark as they would when he uses his powers. Secondly for Shadow the Hedgehog i wanted a super dramatic pose for him. But he's an "in your face" attitude kinda guy so i've got him zoomed in close giving you the what for lol.
To tie everything all together, i found some checker board laces i knew would be perfect for this shoe..... to back track a bit, i actually got the whole idea of this colorway from the laces themselves. Cause at first i never really know what to expect and walking through the store one day i saw the laces and it hit me! All the ideas just started pouring into my mind. Its always the little things that make a great inspiration turn into a great idea. So there you have it, "Hedgehog Showdown".

Moving through the second quarter of this year has been pretty good for me. With another installment of this sonic the hedgehog craze comes the first Knuckles the Echidna custom. All the way from the UK my client said he's a collector of all things hedgehog with his fav character being knuckles. So to start this off he instructed me that he would really love to have a knuckles VS chaos themed sneaker. I went with a simply design cause i knew it could get a little over done. The colors i choose were light blue, and medium grey.
For Chaos, I went with his second form where he adsorbs the yellow and red chaos emeralds. I wanted him to be interactive with the flow of the shoe so i've got him stretching over the Swoosh. As an added touch my client really wanted to have an outline around both knuckles and chaos to glow-n-the dark. Now as for Knuckles i went with a dramatic attack pose. Most poses you'll find online of him will be of him standing looking tough.... But i really liked this one i found cause it reminded me of the old comic book days where all you saw when reading was "Flying KNUCKLES" (YES pun is intended lol). Going with the same idea as Chaos... I have him leaping over the swoosh with a striking punch. Adding a small touch of detail i painted the stitching red in the mid-sole to match the red laces.
Feeling a need to add a little something extra to the over all look of the shoe. I lucked up and came across a pair of identical knuckles pins. And the coolest factor was they are the same exact pose i chose to paint knuckles in, so i had to get them. With that i entitled these customz "Emerald Guardians". I choose this name because both Knuckles and Chaos are guardians of the emeralds. In the Alter Echidna days Chaos was the overseer of all the Chaos emerald and with Knuckles the lone protector of the floating island is the Guardian of the Great Master Emerald.

Here we go on yet another sonic Custom sneaker. Looks like im fastly becoming known for my sonic custom work LOL might have to dub myself as the "The Hedgehog Customizer". Its only fitted.... some sneaker customizers are known for color flips, some for a unique custom style, some for new and innovative designs. Me.... i do sonic customz :). This time for a 6yr old boy! His mom contacted me after scouring & searching the internet for the perfect birthday gift and came across my Sonic Genz i did. She told me he is a Huge sonic fan as well. I went with the the Generation sonic theme as before placing old school & new school sonic together. Switching color schemes up a bit i still went with Blue/Black/ and Red as the main colors. Using Red as the focus was the best choice for the checkerboard. It make's the pattern pop 10x more.The tongue tag was orange as well as the heel stitching so i had to go in and paint it red to match the rest of the design. I Went with a more laid back flow this time and kept it simple. leaving the last touch of the SEGA logo on the heel in its true blue glory. I named these customs "Gen Team Sonic" short for Generation Team Sonic cause as fans, we're all apart of team sonic.
