Custom Painted Nikes

When I was a kid, the coolest shoes I ever owned were Reebok Rads (mine weren’t pink, but upon inspection and now being a confident adult, I wish they had been). Mine were blue and yellow and I kept them in top condition, until the local Nelson, Jimbo, and Kearney beat me up for them. Who’s laughing now local Nelson, Jimbo, and Kearney? Probably still them.

Well readers, my Reebok Rads — awesome as they were before I took a beating — ain’t got nothing on this guy. This guy’s shoes make my Rads look like a hobo’s recent rejection from the Aldi dumpster.

Daniel Reese paints custom Nikes and you and I should probably get a pair. I imagine it won’t take Nike too long to stop him from doing this, in fact it may happen in five minutes. He’s gifted. Not like Vincent Van Gogh gifted, but good enough to paint shoes well. His site is called Brassmonki, and even if you’re not interested, it’s worth a serious look. Tons of cool, if childish, ideas. Dude’s like the lesser Van Gogh of shoe painting. I guess that makes him the Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec of painting shoes.

Either way, Batman Nikes! (Make your younger brother wear the Robins.) Take that Lamar Odom! Who are you again? Do you play for the Clippers?
