Customizer’s Creations Part 2: The Drip

Welcome to part-two of Customizer’s Creations, with a spotlight on the “drip”

Say hello to the drip. Literally, a word that means the drip of jewelry, high-fashion clothes, those who drip the freshest, most on-trend styles.

Customizers’ combination of the “drip” with the custom sneaker drip

If the “drip” is something melting with style, custom sneaker artists have brought their icy, caramel-flowing stylistic drip by paint to sneaker.

When The Custom Movement’s best customizers bring their A-game, we are graced with some of the most eye-catching, fashion-forward sneaker designs and drips. We now bring you four custom sneakers from four special artists that bring unique game to the idea of the drip.

These unique, culture-clashing collections of custom sneakers are truly transcendent designs that you have to check out.

Fluorescent Red/Blue Drip

Fluoro Drip Air Force 1 by NamiraBCreations ($250)

These eye-catching, vibrant custom Air Force 1 Mids by NamiraBCreations start off our list of custom sneaker drips. Creating in a canvas of a midnight black Air Force 1, NamiraBCreations paint in Tiffany blues, apple reds in a unique custom creation that prominently features the drip design.

From the front of the shoe, the area around the toe box is haunted by a splatter of a wistful Tiffany blue paint that splash along the sides. The prominent strap of the mid capture the red apple color that is similarly featured on the shoe.

These design touches emphasize the true spotlight of this Air Force 1: the large, Tiffany-blue swoosh coated with an apple red that appears to slowly drip down the side. Outlined in black paints, NamiraBCreations outline their dynamic red-coated blue drip swoosh.

This tri-tonal combination of blacks, reds, and blues is simply one of the cleanest, coolest custom sneaker designs of late. With quality paints and classic quality, NamiraBCreations cook up an instant classic with this Air Force 1 drip.

The Universal Drip, Stars and Planets Included

Air Max 90 ”Universe Drip” by Daccrew ($379)

With a stroke of otherworldly imagination, customizer Daccrew puts their brush to canvas to paint the extraterrestrial drip with this pair of Air Max 90 custom sneakers.

Leaving the shoelaces, heel tab, and tongue clean of these customs, but painting literally everything else, Daccrew paints an interstellar portrait in blacks, reds, yellows, pinks, blues, and greens. Planets, stars, vortexes, lightning bolts, and black holes all make an appearance on various parts of the custom sneaker’s upper and midsole. These eye-popping, transcendently-painted creations speak a galactic story in an admirable attempt to integrate a true diversity of design and paintwork, a testament to the skill and creativity that Daccrew brings to The Custom Movement.

The smaller, but effective, ghostly drip of the Air Max 90’s swoosh brings everything together. A heavenly capturing of the heart of the shoes, the color blocking of the whites along with the dark, mysterious universe hues are a brilliant combination. These custom Air Max 90s are a treat to behold, and to own.

Space-loving, color-coveting sneaker collectors have a perfect sneaker in Daccrew’s Universal drip classic.

“Pink bubble drip swoosh” by CustomedAf (Sold Out)

With a drip design that is reminiscent of Homer’s iconic pink donut, these delicious-looking custom Air Force 1s are painted in dripping, pink paints by CustomedAf.

A classic combination of delicious, cute, and cool, customizer CustomedAf keeps it classic with a white Air Force 1 low as their canvas. With a focus on two parts of the shoe, she paints the dripping swoosh in pinks, whites, and outlined blacks for the accenting. Decked out in an included pink lace swap and with a delicious, donut-icing Nike swoosh that trickles and melts down the side, CustomedAf’s Air Force 1s sing in this sugary-sweet design. Sometimes, design simplicity can go a long way, and these pink bubble drip customs have the right amount of paintwork to be a truly special custom sneaker.

Essex, UK-based CustomedAf paint these clean Air Force 1 customs with high quality acrylics and finishers, ensuring a scratch-resistant, waterproof custom design. While CustomedAf’s Pink bubble drip swoosh sneakers are currently sold out due to demand, it’s definitely worth it to inquire about a pair for the future. These kawaii-cute classics won’t sit long.
