Read on to find out more!
The idea of adding pizzazz to mundane sneakers first came to Shixian when she was in university. She started out by watching YouTube tutorials and decided to kickstart her customisation business when friends prompted her to.
Shixian mostly did Japanese-inspired art such as waves and florals, but has since expanded her craft to drawing anime characters, which have been very well-received by Singaporeans.
Each pair of sneaker is intricately hand painted using leather paint, then protected with an acrylic sealant. The entire customisation process typically takes three to four weeks, and you will have to write in through a form with your ideas so that Shixian gets a grasp of the style you are going for.
She will also provide a digital mockup so you have a rough visualisation of what the end product will look like.

A My Neighbour Totoro and Avatar: The Last Airbender crossover!
Sailor Moon-themed sneakers to help you fight evil by moonlight. Did you notice the cats hanging off the Swoosh?
K-pop fans rejoice, because Shixian is able to transform your dreams into reality too, like these sneakers featuring BTS.
Anime-themed sneakers are not your cup of tea? Shixian is also capable of painting other adorable characters like The Little Mermaid.
You are also in luck if you are a Sanrio fan! This cute My Melody and Kuromi design in pink adds a pop of colour to the otherwise plain-looking sneakers.
How about LINE FRIENDS-themed sneakers?
Or go for floral designs that will stand the test of time, and can easily complement any outfit.
Customisations generally range from $350 to $550, depending on the complexity of the design. The prices include a brand new pair of Nike sneakers ordered to your size.
Shixian currently has a waitlist of more than one month, so act fast if you are planning to get a pair for yourself or a loved one!
