Back in August I posted up an video of TRAGIKkicks being featured on Str8 Laced a combination streetwear-music-sneaker-skate-television show on the MYX Channel. That interview was actually a result of me being invited for a feature in San Francisco about Paint Or Thread that aired last week on MYX. The fact that I was even considered to be worthy of a spot on the show is amazing considering some of the other people and brands Str8 Laced showcased: Paul Rodriguez, The Clipse and their brand Play Clothes, Toki Doki, Terry Kennedy, Willy Santos, Wale, Drama of Young & Reckless, Hellz Bellz, FATLACE, Upper Playground, Johnny Cupcakes, La Coka Nostra, Fully Laced, MADE Jewelry, Brooklyn Circus, Vans, and numerous others. I can not thank everyone at MYX enough for the opportunity especially the producer Peter for treating me so well. The day was pretty crazy as I had just finished riding a bike up to and across the Golden Gate Bridge and back, ate no food all day, and then Peter and I spent over an hour in rush hour traffic before we could even get to the studio. I wouldn’t change the day for anything. Watching this video will hopefully share some insight into custom shoes and their shoe customizers if you just stumbled across this site as well as my goals for the art of custom shoes.
Photos in the interview are made up of my personal custom shoes under my brand Evolved-Footwear, along with a few photos from other customizers previously featured on this site including: St!zo, Brad Douglas Customs, Diversitile, emmanueLabor, 3R Customs and a few clips of TRAGIKkicks customizing from his earlier feature.
