Free hand painted, YES these custom Nike Dunks by Swaves with Cirque du Soleil’s “LOVE” a tribute to The Beatles show as a theme were painted free hand no stencils or tape. I’ve heard of highly regarded surgeons with less steady hands then from what I’ve seen of shoe customizer Swaves. These are a great use of a base shoe that was already yellow to go with the “LOVE” theme’s colors of red, yellow, pink, and white. The logos on the back heels are an exact replica and the ever so famous Beatles logo looks like it was taken right off an album cover. Better yet these were actually commissioned by one of the performers in the Cirque du Soleil show. Every customizer should use this pair as a measuring stick for what a their pair of painted custom shoes should look like: clean, crisp, not too simple not too busy, and just the right colors. My favorite part is easily the 5 color swirl that if extended alone could be a cool design. Oh and all the lines, logos, and everything that looks like it was printed by a computer not a guy, his paint and a brush.
