Your Kicks is popular around the world! Even popular Vietnamese-American pop rock singer, Kevin Khoa can’t get enough!

Kevin Khoa, a Vietnamese-American pop rock singer, recently picked up a pair of Your Kick’s hand painted shoes. These slip-ons looked great on him as he matched them with his white pants, a sweater, and a long jacket. Kevin Khoa definitely hit the casual but artsy look that our one-of-a-kind shoes provide.

Kevin Khoa rocked the Sink or Swim pair during the day, and the Forbidden Seas pair out at night.

Best Way to Clean Painted Shoes

Hey everyone!

A common question I have been asked is, “how do I clean my shoes”.

First off, I think it is so great that people are invested in maintaining the quality of the shoes.

Second, you would be surprised how easy it is!

Use a toothbrush with warm soaping water on the design (canvas area).  Stay away from bleach products!

And use the old rag + rubbing alcohol technique on the rubber part.  Then let them air dry.

I would say that is pretty easy:)

Keep posted! More shoes releasing in the next couple of weeks!  Another one tomorrow!

Featured Pair: The Imperial City

Another Bright Design From Your Kicks Design Team.

Our featured pair for this blog entry is titled The Imperial City.  There are so many details on this pair that it will take you awhile before you can gather them all.  Not only are there multiple cultures and languages represented in this design, but the colors are also very eclectic.

This pair of vibrant kicks can be purchased by Clicking Here!


Shoe Description: Combining the always fashionable camo with the casual slip on shoes, these kicks will make your feet anything but invisible.  This design’s disruptive color pattern and details add a combative edge to what could be a civilized shoe. With deftly painted barbed wire stretching across your kicks, this shoe won’t conceal your sharp sense of style.




One launched and four to go! Keep posted! Another style revealed tomorrow!

Featured Pair: The Hominid

Macabre Design Makes It to the Top of Featured Pair List!

Earlier today we launched our first of five new designs that will be sold exclusively through  Each week we will launch two or three more designs culminating with the final launch in early September.

This design not only has a macabre feel to it, it also carries historical undertones. This design was inspired by a recent cover of National Geographic which covered the evolution of humans.  The article stated that new bones of an ancient Hominid had been discovered in sub sahara Africa.  It was a rare find because it helped establish another link between our great ancestors and ourselves.  Be sure to grab a pair of The Hominid before it goes extinct!

The Hominid: Available Sept 2011

Design Description: Hominid – n. a primate of the Hominidae family that includes humans and their fossil ancestors.  This definition is seen through the partial fragments of an early ancestor’s skull painted on this pair of unique slip on shoes.  The design appeals to both the casual bystander and the most devoted student of anthropology.  Neutral but dramatic, The Hominid hand painted shoes will make a stark statement for the sleek Homosapien.
