Can customizing get you in trouble with shoe companies?

One question many customizers have probably been asked is “what do the shoe companies think about your work on their products?” So far there has been zero accounts of anyone facing any legal trouble from companies or from owners of licensed images, graphics, logos, etc. Essentially it is the same process of people fixing up automobiles. As long as the identity of the product is not stripped and then marketed as an entirely different product under another name there should be no problems. Essentially if companies were to stop customizers it would be a significant loss in their revenue and free marketing.

There is actually a discussion on this topic that has started on Sole Collector. Check it out to view the opinions of some veteran customizers or to share your own!
