Rockin the Sneaks-Custom Kicks Book by Maki Design

Posted by jhochstat on June 26, 2008

The other night when I was seeing DJ Logic & Project Logic perform (with Hub from The Roots on bass), I received a text message from our good friend Sole Junkie.  He was texting me to let me know that he was in a book about custom sneakers that was just released (and real psyched about it too).  Sole said he made a small yet considerable appearance in the book on pg 210!

The name of the book is Custom Kicks. It was written by Kim Smits and Matthijs Maat of MAKI Design who are based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

This is what Kim & Matthijs had to say about the book when they broke the news about it on their site at the end of February:

We’ve been working on a book about customized footwear for a long time now.  It is called Custom Kicks and will be published by Laurence King Publishing in May.  The book features the works of about 140 artists including Skwak, Steve Harrington. Chuck Anderson, Mike Perry, Boris Hoppek, Jeremyville, Emil Kozak, Jon Burgerman and many many more.

Here are some photos from the book from the Maki site.
