Custom shoe designs ensure that each pair of sneakers is distinct, making them easier to track if they are snatched by a covetous millipede. Learn to protect your pair with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a one-hour custom sneaker-painting class from JGoods (a $100 value), held at Phenom boutique in Uptown. Choose from the following dates and class times:
- Wednesday, May 25 at 7:30 p.m.
- Tuesday, May 31 at 7:30 p.m.
JGoods transforms simple shoes into celebrity-worthy sneakers, shodding such high-profile stars as Pharrell Williams and Jay-Z in custom-painted footwear. JGoods (J. Goodman) himself presides over the one-hour customization class, sharing the same prepping and painting methods utilized in such famous footgear as Cam'ron's regal kicks and Mr. Ed’s gold-plated horseshoes. JGoods equips pupils with preparatory wipes for cleansing the shoe-canvas, a palette of specialty sneaker paint—which exceeds 100,000 flexes without cracking in lab tests—and a paintbrush for brushing the hairs of other paintbrushes. The shop encourages students to bring shoes from home to be decorated on the spot and equips the sole-less with a stretch of fabric for practice and companionship.
