General Questions

The S. branded footwear are declared as a hand-made product lines. It means that the whole process of constructing the shoe is done by people rather than machines. However, when constructing a shoe, there are few phases in the process that need industrial processing. Every other phase in the construction is provided by hand.

‘Customized’ stands for a product that is reproduced in a very limited number, or is a one of a kind piece. In our case, we provide small number of hand-crafted products, so by definition, every shoe is different.

Our Serial designs are the ones that can be reproduced in as much as than 20 pairs per design.

However, as hand-customizers, we cannot make the same brush moves twice, so every sneaker is unique in its own way.

The ‘OneOfAKindS.’ tag stands for designs that are done only once, and would never be reproduced again in the same form as the original. However, feel free to use the OneOfAKindS. as inspiration – you can get a custom design on the same theme, or following the same idea.

Signature Custom Footwear is painted with combining patented ‘ColorS.’ paints formula that stands up to water, dirt, etc. Do not scrub the shoes with any kind of brush or scrubber, or polish the shoes. We recommend using a soft cloth lightly dampened in water or a mild window cleaner to remove dust. Avoid harsh cleaners, especially ones that contain xylene or acetone, or are based on alcohol. They can damage the coating, paint, and even the material of the shoe.

Basically, 20% of the shiny look of the color is because of the coating. It is a normal process for the coating to wear off the shoes after a certain period of time. However, the pigment of the color will remain on your sneakers. Do not hesitate to contact us for any questions regarding the cleaning process not mentioned in the questions bellow.

Sure, we can! However, there are certain criteria that need to be fulfilled:

– If it is our mistake, do not worry. We will correct it free of charge!
– If you have old S. Customs and want us to repair – we can do that. However, send us a picture prior before shipping the shoes for precise arrangements.
– If the shoe color is damaged because of bad care (putting them in laundry machine, for example), send us a picture prior shipping the shoes in order to access wether the shoe paint can be repaired or not. The repair process and shipping in this case, are client’s cost.

Contact us and we will do everything in our power to solve the issue.

No, it will not! In the past few years we have invested in creating our own ‘ColorS.®’ paint formula. Working in the 4th r&d cycle, the ‘ColorS.®’ paints are tested up to 30 professional soccer games.

Even they have been tested as durable, consider our designs as pieces of art. Athletic shoes are exposed to various environment challenges we cannot forsee, so feel free to contact us and explain in detail the usage your custom design need to endure.

Feel free to contact us for any cleaning tips not mentioned in the questions bellow.

We avoid painting soles, because we cannot guarantee for the durability of their customization. If you have a certain wish we could make it happen, but you need to be aware that the paints will start to wear off the bottom of the soles sooner or later.
