The champion of the most recent Sole Collector Forums Custom Contest was announced last month after a year of monthly contests in 2008 that saw strong competition from some of the best customizers around like: Mizzee, Mateo Customs, C2, Sharp020, and many others. So when the finals went down 9 customizers were up against each other to win the votes of the general Sole Collector public and 5 trustworthy judges. The winner Twitch Customs known as SoleAffection on the Sole Collector forums was 1st by the public and 3rd by the judges for a big 59.3% of the total vote. Twitch’s winning design made perfect use of the base shoe. Described in his own words:
“I was highly disappointed with what Nike SB deemed the “Venom dunks” when there was no reference to Venom AT ALL. So I thought I’d do the theme justice and represent Venom or the Venom Symbiote the way he deserves to be shown. The toe, and lace panels are textured to represent the gooey, almost liquid-like symbiote form trying to consume the shoe.”
These Venom Dunks are still up for grabs in size 11. So Hit up Twitch’s MySpace or email for more info. Don’t forget to tell him where you found his customs: ThreadOrPaint.com
