try something different on your next one, like something we haven't seen before, you're "own" creation, u know.
do you have ideas for the next one?

Oh and pumaking yah I wouldn't mind doing one for ya. I'd probably not even charge that much. If I focus and take my time it would only take me a day or 2 to make something sweet. Let me get a month of practice first and then send some shoes my way. Maybe by then I can figure out how to put a logo on it or something.

Did you miss the very obvious "Rob-L Inspired" ...
i thought some people might be interested in what the origin of the inspiration was.

Dont take it the wrong way, just posting the link doesnt really let us know what your intentions were with the comment. Thanks for clearing it up.

Just a hint.
The direction I'm going for the first few is Rob-L simplified yet refined if that helps. (patterns wise)
Oh and update: My brother is letting me use his grey/natural suedes to speed up the process. Pics in a few days.
Also almost done with the other shoe so pics of the full Rob-L inspired Grey/Orange Suedes coming up tomorrow.
Thanks for all the feedback guys. Hope to hear some more!

First up, I'm glad that what I do can inspire people to customise trainers, and I've given loads of help and advice to all sorts of people along the way to encourage them in their work. Check the custom threads on Crooked Tongues for the couple of years worth of advice I have shared...
However, I really REALLY don't want to see somebody COPY my work and ideas.
You need to come up with your OWN ideas for patterns and styles, otherwise all you are doing is making the equivalent of a "custom variant" or in other words a fake, a cheap copy, a rip-off.
I'm not trying to piss you off by saying this, and I am flattered to be the inspiration, but now that you have tested your theory and used an example to guide you through the process of executing a custom like this YOU NEED TO COME WITH YOUR OWN STYLE.
Anything less is selling yourself short, unless you want to be known as an imitator...
As you said "The direction I'm going for the first few is Rob-L simplified yet refined if that helps. (patterns wise)"
Be original man!!!! I didn't invent patterns or polygons or whatever, but I did develop and figure it out for myself, by myself, without biting from somebody else. You need to think the same in the long term if you want to be anything other than the equivalent of those dudes in China who bootleg everything!
The last thing I want to do is stifle your creativity by the way, so please please PLEASE carry on, but do something original.
Give me a run for my money, and make it from your own ideas, not a cheap remix of mine!

I'm with Rob on this. It's a copy of his sneaks and not what it seems ot be "my first custom". Inspiration is cool - next time be creative with your own style & patterns... Its clear, RobL took it personal since he makes a living out of this and even if he didnt, the custom kicks on here are a mimic of his work. Not trying to be an ass, but its the truth.
