When Matt Van Horn of Digg (the world’s largest social news website) came to me looking for unique custom shoes, needless to say I was thrilled! I’ve been a long time Digg user, and I definitely couldn’t pass up a chance to create some exclusive custom kicks for them. Here’s what I designed:

The custom Air Force Ones feature a spiffy Digg color scheme, and a cool glow-in-the-dark “Digg” pattern. I produced 5 pairs of Limited Edition sneakers for the Digg staff and 1 pair for myself.

The founder of Digg, Kevin Rose, and CEO Jay Adelson were gracious enough to sign my pair:

Thanks guys! I hope you enjoy your custom kicks!

You don’t have to be an Internet celebrity to own a pair of custom sneakers. Head over to our Order Page and we’ll design some just for you!
