Butterfly Beats

Now that I'm getting settled at the store and the day-to-day is getting a bit easier, I have more time to custom. Having my sneakers in the case at work helps, but it's low key so it's a nice little "partnership".

A customer came in and wanted to get her daughter a special Christmas present. Vanessa is the youngest of 3 kids, so some customs would definitely be a hit with her. The theme was simple, "Vanessa". She's a twin and a gemini, loves music, and her name means "butterfly". Her mom gave me free range to style the sneakers but wanted me to keep them somewhat neutral-toned. Simple, clean, not over-stated -- hopefully Vanessa likes them :)

Welcome to Swagg Central!

So it's been a minute since I've posted anything. For the past few months, I've been crazy working. adidas just opened up a kick-ass Originals Store unlike any other at South Coast Plaza's Crystal Court and I have been heading that up from hiring, interviewing, training, and getting the store ready. Lots of hardwork, but definitely a lot of fun. So, needless to say, I haven't had time to work of any sneakers. The store is kinda like "my baby" so you all should come check it out! Sneakers for daaaayys! hahaha.

We opened Oct. 24th and tomorrow marks our 1 month "anniversary"! Awww special! Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays everyone! Come in for some fresh kicks and dope gear :)
