Products & Orders Related FAQ:

Q: Are your shoes lasting?

Ans: We are using Angelus Acrylic Leather Paint for all painted models to ensure quality. It is scratch resistant, waterproof & flexible. They are designed to last provided if they’re properly cared for. After the paint dries, we will use Angelus Acrylic Finisher to protect the paint from minor scratches/scrapes. Additionally, we give you the option to add on free waterproof coating on top of the sneaker for everlasting finish.


Q: How long does it take to custom my sneakers?

Ans: PO sneakers are open for 7 days within the month, afterwards it will take 2-5 weeks to custom your pair of sneakers. Non-PO will take 2-3 weeks which are much faster if you do not wish to wait.


Q: Can I make special requests? 

Ans: Yes but only for selected models (e.g. Non-PO Customs). Specially curated models can only work on certain colors so we wouldn't advise. However, if you have a special custom you wish to have us curate for you, we are all ears! Just drop us an email to with your photo attachment.


Q: I have an existing pair of new AF1, can I pass it to you guys to design?

Ans: Yes, we accept only new pair of AF1 unworn. Due to hygiene purposes, we do not accept used sneakers.
