A social media sneaker designer

Daniel Reese, a 21-year-old sneaker designer, takes regular Nike sneakers and turns them into works of art. In addition to a Twitter shoe, he’s also also created a Tupac, Google, and Super Mario custom sneaker (among many other).

He come from Merseyside in the UK, which is not far from Liverpool for those of you unfamiliar with the UK. He decided to launch Brass Monki in June 2009 to serve as an outlet for his passion of design, sneakers and the world of pop culture.

What started out as something of a casual past time is turning into a full-time career. He takes it from brush to leather.

The shoes are limited edition and sell for around $200 – $250 per pair. Check out some of his work here
