Wavy Customs

If you live near a coast, you know that people love the beach come summer. And with the beach and summer vibes are always going to be associated with waves. Even if you’re not a surfer, or Kanye, you’ve gotta appreciate the aesthetic of waves.

(Source: @titan_custom)

Artistically speaking, waves have been a fairly well-used motif for centuries. One of the most recognizable paintings that tries, and does a pretty good job, capturing the power of the ocean is ‘The Great Wave off Kanagawa’ by Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai.

So it’s no surprise that the piece has found itself replicated on everything from shirts to custom sneakers. Since it’s summer, what’s more fitting than a wavy motif inspired by the ‘The Great Wave,’ like customizer@199xcustomize did with these adidas NMDs.

(Source: @199xcustomize)

In the painting, a rogue wave (possibly from a tsunami) is overtaking some boats. This might not be the most ideal thing to happen if you happen to find yourself out on the ocean, but there’s something calming about the way the giant wave looks in the piece. It’s probably the serene blue.

(Source: @ceezemc)

The original woodblock print is considered one of the most recognizable pieces of Japanese art. While there are older paintings in this style, Hokusai’s piece is a longstanding classic in both the serious art world and more pop culture endeavors. These Jordans, also done by @199xcustomize, have the motif going on!

(Source: @199xcustomize)

With summer slowly coming to an end pay homage to “vast blue ocean” with your own wavy customs!

#WhataThose with Jake Danklefs

Never one to slow down, Angelus-sponsored custom sneaker artist and all around talented dude Jake Danklefsis doing a collaboration with Texas-based Whataburger. The cool thing here is that Jake did three different sneakers (for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd), that include a nice homage to his OG Whataburger Dunks.

The #WhataThoseContest is all about customs, and if you’ve been following Jake over the years, you know he’s used the Whataburger motif on his customs before, so it’s a natural pairing. Jake’s Dunk Highs go to first, and they’re are reminiscent of the Whataburger custom he did back in 2012, a Dunk Low that uses the famous orange and white color way that customers know.

Basically, diners can customize their burger, snap a pic, and use the hastag to enter for the chance to win one of three custom sneakers. So, if you live in of the states lucky enough to have Whataburger (and coming from the home of In N’ Out, we’ll admit they’re pretty good burgers), why not enter to win a one-of-one piece of wearable art?

In the meanwhile, follow Jake at @jwdanklefs for inspiration. He’s one of the most sought after customizers out there, so there’s always something cool to see on his page.

Custom Sneakers are for the Kids!

The reason’s folks get into customizing sneakers are pretty broad and varied. Some do it is as a hobby or an artistic expression and others do it for the entrepreneurial aspect—both of which are great. And for some people, like Kip Thompson, custom sneakers can become an educational art experience.
When he’s not customizing sneakers or out on his Suzuki GSZX, Kip teaches 8th grade English Arts Teacher at Le Conte Middle School in Hollywood, CA. Kip wanted to offer his students an opportunity to learn how to customize and or restore their shoes during an Elective Period.
“My school serves students that come from low income homes,” Kip says. “Many of their parents do not have the money to frequently buy them shoes.” Keeping this in mind, Kip took it upon himself as an educator and custom sneaker enthusiast to teach custom sneaker workshop for his students.
And the results were nothing short of incredible. “My students loved this experience,” he says, “because they were able to take an old pair and make them beautiful.” Some of them were able to take a new pair and express their individuality, which is what customization is all about!
“My goal was to simply put the paint brush in the child’s hand and see what happens,” Kip says. And over at Angelus, we couldn’t happier that an educator is using our paint to make a difference. Check out more of what he’s up to @ThompsonB1, and give him a follow. Keep it up Kip!

The Customizer’s Workshop

Customizing sneakers can become a serious business if done right. While right looks different from one person to the next, there are some standard practices that most customizers follow. Generally, those who want to commodify their hobby and turn it into a full-fledged money making endeavor tend to have a workshop.

(Source: @truebluecustoms)

The beauty of a workshop is that no two are going to look alike. The name itself, “workshop,” might imply something old fashioned, but really all you need is a table, a chair (or you could stand if you felt inclined) and your supplies. A roof might be optional, depending on where you live.

(Source: @chadcantcolor)

As far as supplies go, having a rotating collection of Angelus Paint is always a good idea. It’s interesting to see what colors different people have the most of. Between the Standard Paint, Collectors EditionPearlescent,Glitterlites, and Metallic Paints, there are plenty options.

Another must is going to Paint Brushes. While you could use a random paint brush from the store, Angelus Paint Brushes were created exclusively for our paint. Since we make the paint, you can trust that we know what the best features a brush would need.

Outside of paints and brushes, the rest is really up to you. Whatever your workshop set up looks like, we want to see it. Tag us at #angelusdirect and show us where you create your own sneakers.

Custom Cleats That Aren’t Custom

Now that it’s summer, you’re best option for catching a major league sports game in the U.S. really comes down to baseball. Sure there’s summer league NBA, MLS, and golf, but baseball really is one of the big four. While baseball hasn’t really been considered one of the more sartorial sports (that typically goes to basketball), these days you might find a little bit of flair out on the mound if you look hard enough.

(Source: @truebluecustoms)

The trend toward custom baseball cleats has really taken off over the past few years, in no small thanks to custom artists like SolesbySir and True Blue Customs. But more and more, players are able to break the monotony of an official uniform with a pair of custom cleats.

(Source: @solesbysir)

It seems like this trend has caught on outside of custom cleats though. Recently, adidas dropped its Icons 3 Legends pack just in time for summer. Coming out with a cleat that’s just a tad more inspired that the usual fare is a step in the right direction when you compare it to the likes of what basketball players are coming out in.

(Source: adidas)

These cleats highlight some of America’s great baseball cities— New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Atlanta, with a color motif relative to each cities dynamic culture and aesthetic. It’s interesting though, when you look at these cleats something familiar comes to mind: they look like customs, and customs that have already been done. That’s not a knock on adidas by any means, but more a testament to customizers leading the way. So if you have a pair of custom cleats, tag us at!

Ensure the leather surface is clean and dry to the touch.

Apply a small amount of Angelus Leather Preparer & Deglazer onto a rag, sponge, applicator pads, cotton balls, or Q-tips.

Wipe down the desired area and allow the product to completely dry. This will remove the factory paint/finish, leaving a clean surface that Angelus Paint will best adhere to.

In order to prepare patent leather you will need high grade sandpaper and adhesion promoter. Lightly sand down the patent with the sand paper.

After giving it an even sand, wipe down the areas using Angelus Leather Preparer & Deglazer.

Once dry, apply two to three even coats of adhesion promoter allowing the shoes to dry between coats.

In order to prepare vinyl you will need high grade sandpaper and adhesion promoter. Lightly sand down the vinyl with the sand paper.

After giving it an even sand, wipe down the areas using Angelus Leather Preparer & Deglazer.

Once dry, apply two to three even coats of adhesion promoter allowing the shoes to dry between coats.

In order to prepare Nike Foamposites you will need high grade sandpaper and adhesion promoter. Lightly sand down the surface with the sand paper.

After giving it an even sand, wipe down the areas using Angelus Leather Preparer & Deglazer.

Once dry, apply two to three even coats of adhesion promoter allowing the shoes to dry between coats.

Adhesion Promoter is a product (usually aerosol) that is used to help paint adhere to non leather surfaces such as rubber, plastics and more.


Although Leather Preparer and Acetone can both be used for the same purpose, Acetone has much stronger chemicals which can harm or burn leather due. Leather Preparer is a safer alternative which will not harm leather when applying.

Paint continued

Angelus Paints utilize a flexible, self leveling, non-cracking formula that adheres to multiple surfaces such as leather, vinyl, patent leather, canvas and more when prepared properly.

Angelus Paints can be used on any type of shoe from Lebrons, Jordans, KDs and Kobes to all canvas and running shoes. With the proper preparation it can adhere to any surface.

Although airbrushing may seem like the best choice to many, paintbrushing is a very good option in many circumstances such as minimal areas and detail work. Preference would be solely up to you in this case.

To prevent cracking you must prepare the surface properly. Preparation is key in achieving quality results.

To protect from scuffs and scratches be sure to apply finisher to your work when done. Even light coats are prefered.

Paint can be tacky if you apply on a surface that isnt prepped correctly or on fake leather.

Although Angelus paint can be applied to soles of shoes, it is not guaranteed to hold up. Therefore it is not recommended to paint on soles. If done so, apply some type of Sole-Protector to preserve the painted bottom.

In order to paint sock liner or any mesh/nylon areas we recommend mixing Angelus paints with GAC-900. Mixing Angelus Paint with GAC-900 in a 1:1 ratio with give the best results. The fabric/mesh will need to be heat-set after the paint has dried in order to keep the material nice and soft.

In order to paint/dye laces you need a fabric medium mixed with Angelus Paints with a 1:1 ratio. Be sure to heat dry the laces after applying the mix.

The amount of paint needed for a project will all come down to the area that will be worked on. 1 oz normally is enough paint to cover a standard pair of shoes.

Paint takes about 15-30 minutes to dry in between layers. After job is done it would take about a day to fully air dry. Same as a car that is painted, you wouldnt want to drive it right off the lot immediately after its done.

Paints can last up to 3 years of stored properly in room temperature.

Angelus Paints carries a vast assortment of matched colors to several of todays most coveted shoes. You can find those colors in the Collectors Edition.

Walk on Paints are made for heels and loafers BUT are not meant to apply on the soles of sneakers or any other shoes. It will not hold and eventually wears off.
