Sneaker Politics‘ New Orleans location hosted “Custom Culture”, an event that featured 10 custom Vans, done by 10 different artists, and then auctioned off. All proceeds from the silent auction went to The Gleason Initiative Foundation. Each artist was sent a pair of all-white Vans that they could do whatever they wanted with. Customizing is actually how dope. got started, so it felt good to get back at it. Look at some of the cool ones from this past Friday.

Ok, we get it. The Nike Roshe Run is originally a $70 shoe and being resold on eBay for $150+. This isn’t new; resellers did not appear overnight. The Roshe is a simple, COMFORTABLE sneaker. Couple that with a hyped colorway and there you have it. But now that NikeiD has added the Roshe to its lineup, a lot of folks are extra salty. What about the LeBrons, Kobes, or Durants? All popular and all featured on NikeiD. The problem with the Nike Roshe, is that they’re affordable (even at hypebeast/reseller prices) which makes them attainable. That’s a no-go in Sneakerdom where “you can’t get these!” is the mantra. The Roshe isn’t a marketing ploy by Nike or the “white people’s Jordan”, it’s a just a DOPE. shoe period.
