Pimp Your Own Shoes With The JGoods Sneaker Customization Kit

Want to customize that new pair of sneakers you bought, but don't know where to begin?  Get a quick headstart with the JGoods Sneaker Customization Kit, an all-in-one ensemble with everything you need to fashion those plain white kicks into something absolutely pretty.  Or shameful (it's usually a coin toss with these things).

If you've ever drooled at those fine custom-painted sneakers that have been turning up around the web, this kit gives you a chance to stop drooling and start doing something about it.  Like all things design-related, though, you'll probably need some artistic skills to turn up good-looking pieces, so it may be a good idea to practice on those old, beat-up Pumas you bought back in the 90s before going to work on a new pair you bought last Sunday.

What do you get with the JGoods Sneaker Customization Kit?  First, there's five 5-oz jars of waterproof leather paint (white, black, red, yellow and blue), an empty mixing jar and a paintbrush, so you can slather color all over your shoes' uppers as soon as you open the package.   Since it’s not very smart to slap your customizations on a dirty sneaker, it comes with 20 preparation wipes for cleaning the footwear up, as well.

The whole assembly comes in a shoebox measuring 9 x 6 x 3 inches.  Instructions are included, so you don't end up wasting as much paint as you probably would, as well as a canvas carrying case, so you can take your shoe-painting act on the road.

The JGoods Sneaker Customization Kit is available now, priced at $42.
