Kickstradomis is back at the top of the custom sneaker game — dozens of the top NBA players wear his shoes in games, including players like James Harden, Damian Lillard, and Karl-Anthony Towns. But the come-up wasn't easy — an accident back in 2016 left him with serious injuries and a new set of obstacles to overcome.

So like, what happens when you clean the shoe? How'd you go about cleaning it to make sure the paint stays?
mendezboy tv (21 days ago)
if your using acrlyic paints like angelus paints it'll stick on to the shoe and be water resistant the only way to take off the paint is with acetone
