Ever wanted a brightly colored pair of Nikes sporting a portrait of your dog, your kid or your favorite athlete?
Look no farther than Basking Ridge, NJ, where Yoa Kustoms will do exactly that -- custom design and hand paint your very own one-of-a-kind kicks. The Parsons-trained designer will put anything you want on your feet. The sneaker gallery on YK's site shows shoes painted with everything from abstracts to maps to cartoon characters to Eli Manning.
Shoot her an email with your shoe size, design idea and the kind of shoe you want. She prefers paint on with Nike Dunks (more space to work with) but she'll work with anything -- the website also shows Chucks and Vans (including a pair painted with the Virgin Mary).
All of YK's sneaks are coated with leather protector and come with a certificate of authenticity to let you know that your feet are truly unique. She'll even do repairs for free -- just pay the shipping costs. So go on, come up with the loudest, tackiest, most colorful design you can think of and -- in only a week -- have it custom painted on your shoes. (Photo credit www.kicksonfire.com )
