What is The Custom Movement?

What are custom sneakers?
Custom sneakers are hand-made shoes by an artist. These shoes are made to order and are specifically made for you.

How long until I get my shoes?
The wait time for painted shoes is typically around 4 weeks (but it may be shorter or longer depending on the artist and how busy they are).

What is your return policy?
Typically, since the shoes are made to order, specifically for you, all sales are final unless otherwise stated by the artist. Please double check your shoe size before ordering. If you need additional assistance please contact the artist directly or The Custom Movement via email at

What is your shipping policy?
Shipping and handling will take up to 1 - 2 weeks for domestic shipping and up to 4 weeks for international shipping. The cost and time of shipping depends on where the artist you are ordering from is located and where you are located (the shipping cost for an item is displayed when you go through the order flow for an item).
