ArtKicks: “Album Year” Custom Vans Slip Ons

Evan Schultz, winner of the 1st PaintOrThread.com Custom Contest, this last month brought on a second designer to his brand: Art Kicks a line of customized Vans Slip Ons. The new shoe customizer, Cam Giblin has recreated 19 different rock music album covers all over a pair of the usual white Vans Slip Ons titled “Album Year”. Some albums such as “Appetite for Destruction” by Guns ‘N’ RosesĀ  had to be simplified to fit the entire design but he still spent 20+ hours on these Vans. It is refreshing to see a rare theme such as this, even better when it looks amazing.
