    Adidas ROM. Got 4 pairs of these. They were all green and I painted two pairs blue like this including having to repaint the logo on the back with a stencil. Never doing it again...took way too much time. I'm keeping one pair unused/display and other to wear. Btw the yellow laces are different shades...I got 3 different yellow shade pairs to find the one I wanted and left them mismatched to figure it out over time.

    Can anyone identify the movie I referenced painting my ROMs this way? :) I was unable to buy a pair of them (only 100 made) many years ago so ended up making my own...

    I honestly didn't know you could paint sneakers. What kind of "paint" is it?

    They're leather shoes so it's like painting other leather products. This is acrylic and it needs to be sealed when painted. I sometimes watch YouTube videos of people restoring old Jordan shoes and thought of it from that. I bought the supplies from here (no affililation): https://angelusdirect.com/collections/paint

    I didn't do the first pair right as I forgot to all duller to the paint so the blue was glossy. Decided that would be the pair I wear and got another pair and did it right to make it dull like the factory green. Pic of that:

    I have no interest in ever doing it again as it's too time consuming (I'm OCD with it), but for those with kids it could be a fun project for them to do whatever they want.

    LMAO! I wasn’t sure about them at first, but they’re so comfortable and everyone compliments them. :)

    Darth, I’m not a sneaker guy. I know nothing when it comes to special ones. Is there something unique about those?

    Not really, other than that they are patent leather and kinda flashy, which is why I don't wear them very often.

    Cole Hann used to make some great shoes. Since they were sold off, not a fan.
