The sneaker industry has gone thru many evolutions over the past 30 years. From the emergence of global brands like Nike, Jordan, Adidas and Converse to high-end designer sneakers from Gucci, Armani to Polo, now the newest development in the sneaker business is the custom sneaker designed for organizations, schools, entertainers and celebrities. Sneakerscustom.com, based in metro Atlanta, is the new trendsetter

Owned by entrepreneur Tariq Edmondson, Sneakerscustom.com is a new, innovative way to generate income for schools, organizations or anyone with aspirations of making their own sneaker brand. The first product launched is a beautiful black canvas sneaker with red & green trim that’s an instant eye-catcher. Inspired by the design of the Converse Chuck Taylor, the Red, Black & Green sneaker is quickly becoming a favorite for conscious African-Americans in the USA, Caribbean and even the United Kingdom.

“My inspiration came about a year and a half ago, I saw all of the other big sneaker companies, and thought that a sneaker product featuring the red, black and green would make an impact,” Tariq explains.
