University of Iowa Custom sneakers

Well it seems like reping your school with hooded shirts, t-shirts, and hats is played out! The list of university themed custom sneakers is just getting longer. The lucky client for these shoes actually got inspired by the shoes I made for the state rival, once again the Iowa State University custom sneakers. The client thought that if some one can rep ISU with the cyclone custom kicks, why couldn't they?

As far as the design concept, these were a follow up of the Seattle Supersonics custom sneakers, by having the logos on the toe instead of my usual use of the side panels. This will contrast with the rival custom kicks made to rep ISU. On these I used the the faded swoosh, this is something that i was really into this summer. This summer I went back home (Brussels, Belgium) and they faithfully wear the Air max BW and there were a lot of them that had the faded swoosh, that's what inspired me and made me want to use this over the summer. I wanted all three colors to be equally balanced, and I hesitated for a very long time on the color of the logos, white? yellow? hmmmmm well I ended up going with the white for balance and to make the black of the toe even deeper. My followers know how I feel about the use of black and white, and for the new comers, I love using both of those colors, I love the contrast of them combined, the strength, and purity of them, so if you ever get a pair and you allow me to be free on the choice of colors, there will definitely be a strong use of both of these with a color for the focal point, or to make your eye travel around the shoe and away from the main focal point.

Well once more, I know I repeat myself but as I always say, possibilities are endless people!! so do not be scared! Get your own pair of custom sneakers from xclsvworld!!!! I got you!! lol
