|Custom Puma Pike Sneaks!|
"Initially I produced painted graphic work on white leather shoes, but as I was also collecting so many suede shoes it really intrigued me to find out how to master that material too. Early experiments taught me that a solid-colour factory looking finish is quite hard to achieve on a ready-made suede shoe, so I began to experiment with smaller areas of colour and pattern to fill areas in, and this is how my current pattern work was born."
This pair is made from a bright green Puma Match LE, and was painted for a keen Pike fisherman, based on a Pike skin pattern. The shoe was then finished with a custom gold leaf "PUMA PIKE" foil block on each side.
