Titled “For My Lady Friend”, shoe customizer TTK finished both of these custom Nike Blazers and Nike Air Max LTD within days of each other. I”m not sure which was made first but he liked the colorway so much he just had to use it twice. Using a black on gray cement speckle pattern and one of his original patterns that looks like a brush stroke these are definitely a set pack that would be great for any lady friend…or maybe as a couple pair, boyfriend in the Air Max LTD and girlfriend in the Nike Blazer.

Yet another Obama custom from TTK. These may be our favorite of his work. The subtle abstract play on the American flag is really nice. A much better design than actually having the flag on the shoes. From TTK:

I had to do these in a sz 13, which doesn’t offer much of a variety of a available sneakers to select from. I came across a pair of all white blazers, did my thing, & here’s the result from beginning to end.
