While the list of people going by the title of sneaker customizer continues to grow none have influenced others to get into the game more than Dan GaMache has the past couple years. After taking a few years off Dan brought back his custom sneaker work of Mache Custom Kicks in late 2011. Since that December the attention of customizers has blossomed across social media with @Mache275 amassing 280,000+ followers on Instagram alone. His latest project is a collaboration with BACARDÍ Rum for the release of their new Mango Fusion flavored rum.

Watch the video below for an inside look of what goes into each pair Mache customizes while he shares his inspiration, childhood memories, and what it has taken to get him where his is today.
