size? captures: Creator Series – How to customise Air Force 1s with @prettyiecustoms

There’s no denying that Nike’s Air Force 1 is one of the most popular silhouettes of all time; now more so than ever. So to ensure your pair stands out from the rest, we’ve caught up with @prettyiecustoms for an Air Force 1 customisation class.

What you’ll need

Leather paints

Paintbrush

Masking tape (optional)

Angelus matte sealer

Nail polish remover

Cotton wool

Step 1:

Remove the laces from the shoes.

Pour some nail polish remover on the cotton wool and rub across the pair’s leather uppers.

Step 2:

Mix the paints and start to paint each panel layer by layer.

If needed, use masking tape to keep your desired areas free from paint.

Step 3:

Apply several layers of paint until you have a smooth, clean colour-block.

Step 4:

Repeat the previous two steps with your second colour option.

Step 5:

Apply the finishing touches. For example, little touch-ups anywhere that need more paint or need some extra work done.

Once finished, seal the paint-job with Angelus Matte Sealer to protect your masterpiece and ensure the paint lasts when you’re wearing them.
