About

Because 42 Custom Kicks Story

I had been working on my MA in Clinical Psychology when my baby sitting all fell apart and I had to withdrawal from my classes to stay with my 1 yr old daughter. I had randomly been painting shoes for my daughter and myself just as something to do during nap time because I love to paint and I love shoes and in all honesty.... I'm just not generally very good at quiet. I had a lot of people start asking me about where I got the shoes and asking for me to make them some so eventually I started this Etsy shop. It is something that I love to do and something that I am able to do while I get to stay home with my daughter! This little random thing I started doing because I needed to find something quiet has gotten me invited to be an artist at comic cons which has lead to attention from many celebrities, my art in museums, and given me the ability to travel all over the country for shows. Definitely not where I expected leaving grad school to take me!
Now I am back on my daughter is in kindergarten so I am back on track to finishing my MA but keep the shop open because I still love doing this. Then onward to becoming Dr. Turner.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I pretty much always take custom and personalized orders. If I'm swamped or need to make orders for your request it may take a little longer to get custom orders to you but I'm more than willing to talk to you about it and we can figure out exactly what we need to set up!

Sizing details

Shoes: The sizes in all the brands that I use are very standard. You are more than welcome to go try on shoes at a store or send me shoes that you would like me to paint to make sure they fit! Let me know if you have any questions about specific brands or sizes. Vans work well if you need wide shoes. My orders are usually for Vans, Converse, and Toms but definitely not limited to those brands!

Care instructions

Shoes: Spot clean when needed. If you have something happen where they need to be washed, wash on gentle with cold water and let air dry. They are sealed to protect the paint.
