One of Toronto’s finest sneaker customizers, C. Williams was recently invited to create a series of custom AF1’s for the new and upcoming label, The Story. These shoes will drop later this month and go up for sale at The Story website. Much of what sets C. Williams’ apart from other customizers is the way he goes about his alterations. Often the actual upper of the shoe is changed and manipulated rather then just a paint job like other customizers. Some of C. Williams previous creations have graced the feet of celebrities such as Snoop Dog, Drake and Kardinal Offishall. A fourth shoe will also be released in the Fall. See more at Sneaker Freaker.
