Custom pair of Raptors kicks I made from a pair of Nike Blazers in the black, red and silver. Added the new We The North slogan during the crazy playoff series against Brooklyn and finished them right before that heartbreaking missed layup. The logos are the claw and the maple leaf featured on the back of the Raptors jerseys.
Size 11.5 and for sale (contact for information).
So this is a pair that sold at a charity auction and I FINALLY got a customer that wanted me to paint a team that I’m actually a fan of. The only drawback is that now I want to keep them for myself!
The logo on the back is the new 2012 Toronto Blue Jays logo. I incorporated the stitching from the larger logo on the back seams of the shoe to give it the appearance of a baseball and painted the front panels and swoosh in the colours of the uniforms and hats.
I guess I’ll have to make a pair for myself for when I head over to watch the Jays play this summer!
Had to take a bit of a break from shoes to concentrate on my actual job and volunteer coaching duties. Christmas vacation rolled around and I was able to get a few pairs of shoes done and here’s the first pair of 2012!
They are a Bar Mitzvah gift for my cousin Josh who is a huge Canadiens fan (it’s ok, I don’t hold it against him). These are based on the home jersey for the team which is mostly red with blue and white details. PK Subban is also his favorite player explaining the number 73 on the back of the shoes. Hopefully he hasn’t grown out of them in the last week!
Happy new year everyone!
These are a pair of Nike Sweet Classic High’s that I grabbed recently and I wanted to do something a little more simple and understated than I had done for the last couple of pairs. The original colours for the shoes were red and white anyways so I was inspired to create a pair that honours my home and native land.

So I grabbed a pair of Nike Toki NDs on my last trip to the states and decided to do an homage to my (and pretty much everyone I know) favorite game system. These have never been worn before so I am willing to sell them (they’re size 10.5 US).

Just in time for ComicCon?
Basically the same story as the Pittsburgh shoes… suckered into another pair
