Custom shoes for the paralympics. This week we were honoured to paint a custom pair of kicks for the Aussie paralympian, Kim Robins. Kim is a wheelchair basketball player in the Aussie team who are heading to Tokyo this month.
As you can see from the pictures we used the Australian green and gold as the main colourway. A black edging was hand painted on the shoes and a touch of white was left for contrast.
We also featured the teams mascot – the honey badger on these custom shoes. Find out more about the paralympics here and get your own custom pair of hand painted shoes here at Mad Alice custom kicks.
