Painted Shoe Artist

Custom sneaker designer, Van Monroe, painted this shoe and became famous. This very shoe is soon to be placed in the Smithsonian's Museum of African American History and Culture. A 26 year old from Long Beach (via Cleveland), he is now in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox. He started painting shoes for friends at the University of Miami. This Obama shoe idea came to him in a dream right before he thought he was going to be evicted from his apartment. He hasn't looked back :)
