Into the spiderverse inspired my custom nikes

Have you seen the animated masterpiece that is Into the Spiderverse? I loved it so much that I came out of the cinema just dying to emulate those Nikes that Miles Morales was wearing.

My son was the one who saw a YouTube ad for the film and told me about it. He’s a mad superhero fan and his enthusiasm has rubbed off on me over the years. Let’s just say that I’m a late starter to the genre but am hastily making up for lost time. Being a parent gives you some whopping responsibilities but it also allows you the chance for a second childhood.

I can’t drop any spoilers here for the movie but I was captivated by it’s visual style. Miles Morales, his friends and family appealed massively to me and made the storyline as joyous as the way that the animation looked. Those kicks of his got some real adventure time.

When I got home and googled Nike Air Jordan 1’s , I discovered that I wasn’t the first person to imagine some Into the Spiderverse themed creps. Nike had got there first, but, they weren’t exactly what I had in my head. They are also largely sold out in the UK, or available for 2.5-3 hundred quid.

My vision came true and here are my very own Mike Morales Spiderman shoes. I liked them so much, I made them into a (very short) movie.

Custom Nikes, Doc Martens, and other lovely stuff

Custom Jordans, custom Nikes, hand painted Doc Martens or even your choice of leather footwear or apparel will make you stand out from the crowd this season with warm and dry toes.

ShoeTattoos can now boast a really decent stack of Angelus brand leather paints which are the very best paints available for leather customisation.

I can paint the leather, midsole, heel tab and bumper. The soles can be done but you’ll need a sole protector if you want the paint to last there.

All designs are my own except for the calf boots, which are fan art taken from a picture by the incredible artist Tom Lewis. He’s absolutely incredible, well worth a click through and browse.
