Up to this point there has been a slew of custom contests. From the first minor online one on NikeTalk back in 2003, Sneaker Freaker’s Top 99 in 2004, Reebok and Finishline contest in 2005, the Sole Collector sneaker competitions, International Sneaker Battles, Adidas Adicolor in 2006, and Sole Collector’s AF1 25th Anniversary Issue. One that has lasted the longest has been the Sole Collector Custom and Restorations monthly battles which are now progressed into the Sole Collector Battle Royal I of ’09-’10. This may be the first contest that is held without questions of who should have won. The setup is a double elimination bracket style contest with each week a new battle between two customizers will take place starting in April and ending in July of 2010. Some of the biggest and newest names are involved: Mache, Sharp020, C2, Twitch, Yoa Kustoms, there is actually 37 to be exact. Since the first battle is months away there is time for you to print out and fillout your bracket NCAA March Madness style. The main man running the setup of the contest is Sole Jester of 3RCustoms, watch his video equivalent of the NCAA Selection Show order of the matchups.
