Even if you're not the biggest shoe enthusiast, these customized Nike Dunks by Daniel Reese will absolutely blow you away! Drawing inspiration from films, music, and gaming, the 21-year-old self-proclaimed "sneaker freaker" for Michigan takes shoe art to a whole 'nother level.
The process starts when he strips the "wax like" coating over the leather using acetone. He then uses Angelus leather paints to customize the shoe, and a pin brush or sharpie marker for finer details. Once the shoes looks good, he wipes them down with a wet cloth and applies a layer of clear acrylic using an airbrush.
Although these shoes are not currently for sale, Reese does plan on announcing the opening of an online store in the near future. Only a limited number of shoes will be available, and he is only taking 10 orders per month. The price per set will be about $220.
