The Brannock: Custom Sneaker & Art Show 7.13.2013 #LosAngeles

Do shoe stores like Foot Locker and Finishline still have Brannock devices on hand? If you worked in a shoe store years and years ago the “Brannock Device” was an often used tool that the customer often times used incorrectly. Nicknamed after the footwear industry’s standard measuring device is “The Brannock: Custom Sneaker & Art Show” in Los Angeles. Over ten artists’ work has been curated by King Kang of King of Sneakers and Marcos Rafael Ponce of Top2Bottom in an effort to showcase the customized sneaker’s place as an art form all it’s own.

Sab_One: Nike Dunk High Spawn Custom Shoes

The first look at a all-around complete custom shoe is a great moment: clean painting, flowing color blocking, complementary accent colors and realistic graphics. The customizer responsible for the most recent great moment is Sab_One.  Spawn characters have always been extremely detailed, Sab_One followed that reputation in his version of Spawn themed Nike Dunk highs: from the red cape to the chains to the menacing green eyes and smile. Even more the fact that he did not paste the  “Spawn” title all over the shoe makes these somewhat subtle relying only on great recreation of a comic book character on a 3D canvas. Customs like this are the ones that make other customizers and fans remember your name. Lookout Sab One the requests will start flowing in!
