Dyemond Apparel Custom Slip-Ons
This DIY custom shoe biz has an interesting approach. The lead artist, Ashley Brackins, does limited editions of no more than 15 pairs of any one of her designs. She signs and numbers each edition just like a print series. Kicks from Dyemond are definitely meant to be worn since each of the designs is heat set so that you don't have to worry about loosing color. There's not too much worry about dye bleeding onto your socks, either.
Besides the limited series design by Ashley, Dyemond also offers "The Heritage Collection." Think flags, ya'll. They will customize a pair of Vans for you based on elements from the national flag of your choice. You can link up with the folks at Dyemond here: Dyemond Apparel.
