The last episode of the Custom Sneaker Chronicles we posted was in January of 2014. We missed quite a bit in those 16 months.  There has been no signs of the custom sneaker world slowing down whether it’s more people giving sneaker customization a shot or ordering custom work. As we get back to it in this revival episode we discuss a few things that have been happening such as releasing work on special days, designer + customizer collaborations, and sneaker customizers who have added products to help supplement their custom brand.
