custom shows....

It's funny these days to remember that custom shows of our weird
little urban collectibles have been around for sometime. We have this
poster we have had in the Kr offices for years (I have been here 6) of
a custom Adidas Superstar show from some time ago in SF. 2002 to be
exact, at 111 Minna Gallery. It makes me chuckle every time I see it.
Mostly because Cool Chris, of Groove Merchant fame, made a coconut
shelltoe, but also because of the random people involved, some super
famous now, and some not so much. Though I must admit, I rarely notice
it anymore, it has been in the same place so long it disappears into
the wall.
