Originally started in 2007 by a group of artists, Your Kicks was born from a passion for artwork, shoes, and fashion. Each of us wanted our shoes to be different from our friends and this drove us to paint our own unique artwork on each pair we purchased. Our designs kept improving and the shoes starting to gain in popularity.
We began receiving so many compliments of our artwork that we decided to start painting shoes for our family and friends. Our beginning days started inside our apartments and parents’ home but eventually expanded to warehouses and design studios.
The shoes started to gain in popularity in the brand took off. The first store that held Your Kicks was called Lisa Kline. They ordered 12 pairs of womens shoes. The next store to carry the brand was called Kitson in Beverly Hills. Soon thereafter, we branched out to include mens and childrens shoes. They were a hit with both audiences.
Eventually, the team grew and Ben started traveling internationally to meet with brands and fashion studios, including Neiman Marcus. Your Kicks were being sold in boutiques in over 14 countries, as far as Dubai, China, and even in South America.
Life happened, and the team decided to pursue other passions in life and Your Kicks became dormant. It always remained a special place in their heart and contributed to their growth. But it became too much to manage given their other interests and life pursuits.
After many years of dormancy, we’ve decided to revive the brand, but this time as a digital-only community.
Your Kicks is the number one source on the Internet for custom shoes and hand-painted sneakers. We started with just canvas Vans, but now include an array of styles including Nike, Adidas, Converse, and many more.
Each week we bring to you the freshest kicks we can find on the Internet. Both for men and women, and kids.
