Ultimate hipster bullshit if you ask me, never got the sports shoe hype, especially expensive ones that could buy you a real custom fitted leather artisan shoe that could lasts you decades instead of just months and will actually support your feet and be good for you. I find it typical that the highlight in making sneakers wether it's mass production or custom ones like these always have to do with some celebrity wearing them because the product itself is just plastic crap, it always has to be hyped like a pig with lipstick.
finally, content that appeases the socialist and the hype beast in me

hans klok They are made to replicate rare shoes. Made with good materials, and can be sold for a lot. And dude, search up Nike Air Mags. Easily over 10 g
hans klok (8 days ago)
+Brown CRPT materials are not limited. in fact many of these shoes could easily cost 50 dollars. There is no craftmanship in those shoes, no rare materials. just arteficially created rarity that could easily be replicated and there is no quality difference between the items.
Brown CRPT (9 days ago)
hans klok Many shoes are WAAY over 10k. Because they are limited,material, and popularity.
hans klok (10 days ago)
+Car Boi yeah but 10k is way overpriced. buying a pair of dress shoes from a bespoke shoemaker dont even cost that much. and they really create a shoe that fits you like a second skin.

They work hard on making em shoes $50 or not it has a price when u make it with hands

Been searching the net a bit on how to make my own shoes and found this video. I do have to say I have a particular shoe design in mind, the Back to the Future Air Mags, mainly just the style and the actual HIGH top as opposed to the "Mid-Top" High Tops we have out in stores these days. Wish this guy had this class over here in NC near me, as I would love to come take this class he showcases. I always have trouble finding a good shoe, making concessions here and there, like I bought a pair of Nike Air Monarch IVs earlier, they are nice and decently comfy but wore them to work and realized I might not have much grip on the bottom of these for working in the kitchen. And the fact they are low cuts also is a slight drawback as I really do need some stability in my ankles. However unlike the mid tops I've been getting, they don't let my heel lift up much and rub along my Achilles tendon making it sore. The insole is good for now but will be putting some memory foam inserts in later. So what I'm looking to make is the Nike Air Mag look, the shape of the shoe and it's extra support in the heel and ankle areas, but will have either a lace tie closure or might go full velcro straps. Sadly I have little to no sewing knowledge or tools, so was looking into this to see if it's a venture that might be too great an undertaking. Most how to videos for shoes I find are mostly for just cloth shoes like a Converse All-Star or more traditional leather dress shoes. Will keep looking but if anyone can help point me in the right direction for learning how to make my own sneakers, and especially in the area of making my own Mags, do please reply with whatever advice you can.

Wow that’s loos so amazing would love to experience going to a class and making my own shoes 👌🏽
David Larson (1 month ago)
Let's put a nail in the coffin of the question: "Why is he allowed to put the Nike trademark on his shoes?" These are customized shoes made with parts of shoes that were sold originally as Nike's... there is no legal difference between him making a profit off these shoes and a re-seller making a profit off of rare Nike's. Think of it like a customized classic car. You still keep the Ford logo on that old customized Mustang, right? Even after you've changed the drivetrain, suspension, interior... etc...

+Kirby Uy like I said he probably built a relationship and its doubtful Chinese replicants have but I do see it could also be a double standard
Kirby Uy (3 days ago)
so those supreme nike 270 and other not real collaboration shoes made by Chinese are not fakes because its "costumize". lmao
Kirby Uy (3 days ago)
and if the Chinese made this for sure people will call it fake. lmao
Ancient Glacier Drip (4 days ago)
He probably just has the green light and built a relationship with them.. good question though I am wondering the same thing.

I love the part where he talks about mental health. It was unexpected
This is what I'm going to do. It took me until now to realise. I've collected second hand luxury shoes for a year. I have a flashback of doing my first custom at 14 stitching a new tongue with a stash pocket for some weed on blazers. I'm going to win now.
