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:

Here we have one of our latest creations, the 24 Karat Classics:

These shoes were commissioned by a husband as a gift for his loving wife. They feature her name and initials, along with golden Swooshes and swirling flourishes. These custom made sneakers were painstakingly gilded in genuine 24 karat gold to produce the perfect gift for her birthday. A stylized emblem was created from her initials (R.R.) and gilded in place at the rear of the shoe; her first name was placed on the other side. Golden laces were used to accent the design.
