Boarders and bikers alike are rightfully drawn to designs by the inspired master shoesmiths at DC Shoes. While the company specializes in footwear for the extreme sports set, they're also known for enlisting some of the world's most fertile minds to collaborate on their creations, turning canvas sneakers into canvas works of art. In certain cases it's not always advisable to wear your art where you might get it dirty, so the good folks at the Subtext store in San Diego have decided to make an exhibit out of some of their favorite custom designed footgear. The Kicks exhibition, presented by Subtext and DC Shoes, kicks off on January 25th and features super sweet shoe designs from some of our favorite artist pals like Colby Nichols and Josh Kenyon, amongst many others. So if you're in the San Diego between January 25th and February 7th feel free to check it out as Subtext will be donating 25% of the gallery commissions to the Red Cross to help the families who were affected by the recent Southern California wildfires.
