With the ever growing sneaker community the need/ want to stand out and have an exclusive pair of kicks is more relevant than ever. In light of such a need there has been an emergence of sneaker customizers (people who paint your shoes with a dope design). Now customizing shoes has been around for quite sometime but few have perfected the craft, with the availability of sneaker and leather paints as well as online tutorials it seems that many people have picked up customizing as a hobby painting their own sneakers or even taken to coloring the kicks of their fellow sneakerheads. 

Art tutorials have always been something fun to do, many people have taken to the growing Panting with a Twist fad with friends or even on dates. Well now Detroit Sneakerheads have their own twist on the custom sneaker game thanks to Kamekos Kicks. 

Kameko has been painting and customizing sneakers for years and has even been featured on major sneaker blogs for a 1 of 1 pair she did for Detroit Piston Andre Drummond.
