Ordering from Tyler was awesome! He responded super quickly and answered all of my questions thoroughly. I made some changes to the shoes and he knew exactly what I wanted. Tyler was super professional and reliable and when I got the shoes they looked amazing! I would highly recommend Tyler and his work for any of the shoes he has displayed in his shop, or for a completely custom pair/vision you may have!

About

Over ten years ago a company called TOMS Shoes approached me to partake in a competition with a handful of other artists from the Los Angeles area. The purpose of the competition was to hand paint white TOMS Shoes to be presented to the owner of Fred Segal Feet. I thankfully came out on top and because of that I was one of four other artists for TOMS to sell our custom shoes at Fred Segal Feet in Hollywood. Growing up in Southern California this was a dream to me. The opportunity lead me on to meet the owner of Fred Segal Feet and he personally asked me to paint Nikes for his iconic Melrose store. The first customers were Michael Eisner, Elton John, Kevin Costner, Tegan And Sara, as well as many more icons. After several years of success with Fred Segal Feet I said goodbye and moved East to New York City. Since then I have worked in freelance design and photography for companies like Ralph Lauren, BLK DNM, GUESS?, and Foot Locker.

A very good friend of my wife's and I was having a baby shower. We came up with the idea to give them something special that no one else would think of. The couple are eclectic and are obsessed with pineapples. So naturally we thought painting tiny pineapples on tiny Converse would be appropriate. Once people started seeing this special gift they started asking if I could paint a baby shower gift for them; the majority of my friends asked if I would do a pair in adult sizes. And before I knew I was back painting shoes again!

Every order I receive I walk 10 minutes into Soho to either Adidas, Converse, or Nike and I pick up your shoes! I work from our living room in our Lower East Side apartment in New York City with my assistant. Her name is Fitzgie and she is a cat we adopted from a shelter here in lower Manhattan.
