Now besides our own site PaintOrThread has two favorite sneaker related sites: SneakerFreaker and CrookedTongues. Expect a much more detailed run of posts based off of all that those two sites have to offer. But let us start with a recent feature from SneakerFreakers: How to Lose Friends and Paint Shoes All Day by Jor One. After reading this article it was a sad day around PaintOrThread because we read the news from the article that Jor One had given up on customizing to pursue other activities. Who is Jor One you ask? I hope you did not ask yourself that question out loud or in that creative mind of yours. In case you did its okay. He is only one of the most original customizers to ever stick a brush in paint. From his infamous Air Force Mids mocking the entire idea of sneaker culture to his insane Reebok Ice Cream’s with hand painted versions that ranged from having cartoon like images of old beer cans, chicken legs, cigars and other vices to his numerous Air Jordan Retro customs. He definitely put a mark on this hobby. Do yourself a favor and read his article, definitely a good guideline for all the new artists wanting to make it big.
