Did You Get Custom Shoes Painted at the Event?
There was no charge for our customisation services at NBA Crossover London 2019. We painted on a first come, first served basis, for those who arrived early.
We had a selection of NBA and Basketball related designs for you to choose from. Clients then requested slight changes to the designs to make them totally unique and personal.
Most guests brought some white, leather or canvas shoes. We can paint on most shoes, but we can’t guarantee that it is possible until we saw the sneakers.
We also customised other items, not just sneakers and shoes. Guests brought items down and we saw what we could do for them.
