For those of you who don’t want to buy a full extra kit for these projects, you can just use the scraps you have left over after you’ve customized your shoes to customize your laptop, cellphone, memory-stick, or even office cup.

Whois Who?

Check out the shoes in the pictures below. One of them is a FunkKit original peacock design by Meirav (as applied to a regular sneaker) and one has been manufactured by Creative Recreation (as a permanent design), and originally sold for €150. Can you guess which is which?

Peacok Style Footwear Creative Recreation and FunkKit Stickers

I bet you can’t. They’re practically identical! No one would know that one cost almost 200 USD and the other can be purchased for only $9.20 plus shipping. (The one on the right is the FunkKit shoe, by the way). We are always saying that FunkKit is an inexpensive way to make your shoes look like high fashion, and now you can see for yourself that it’s true! Here’s another pair to compare- this time it’s a Jimmy Choo men’s shoe, retailing at $908 USD, versus Funkkit “Going Wild” by Naria R. and “Zebra Style” by Roy T.:

The blog features cool Do-It-Yourself projects and creative clothing ideasFunkkit Stickers for Sneakers & The Pineneedle CollectiveFunkkit Stickers for Sneakers & The Pineneedle Collective that make us want to run to our closets to try them out for ourselves. Annika recently created a new project with FunkKit’s Stickers for Sneakers, but decided to use the stickers on brogue shoes rather than sneakers. It’s a great use of FunkKit stickers for those of you who don’t wear sneakers very often.

Annika wrote a post about the project, which includes easy animated instructions and ideas for alternative ways touse the stickers. Check it out here:

Let the Show Begin! Gift & Premium Show


Funkkit Stickers4Sneakers tradeshow in HKtdcLast month, the FunkKit team took a trip to Hong Kong for the Hong Kong Gifts and Premium Fair, to exhibit our Stickers for Sneakers. We set up a booth among hundreds of other exhibitors and met people from all around the world who were looking for new fun and exciting products to bring back to their countries. Since FunkKit is the first company to produce Stickers for Sneakers, we attracted a good deal of attention from visitors and got a lot of compliments for the creative, unique concept idea for shoe customization.

We received interest from many retailers from Australia, New York, South America, Japan, Hong Kong, and Europe who loved the idea of Stickers for Sneakers.

All in all, FunkKit was very well received in Hong Kong! And we got some time to tour around the city after the show, which was an extra fun perk.

Our Taiwanese counterpart, Obien EZ Stickers, also attended a trade show — Taiwan’s largest and best B2B gifts and stationery purchasing exhibition, “Giftionery Taipei 2012 – Taipei Int’l Gift & Stationery Show 2012″. To find out where in Taiwan you can buy their products, or just to see some really cool and unique ways to use Stickers for Sneakers, visit their website at www.obien.shop.conn.tw.

Multi Collab

FunkKit-Shaun Palmer-Chase
FunkKit, Shaun-Palmer and Chase collab
As you know FunkKit is constantly looking for new and exciting collaboration opportunities. We’ve had lots of fun in the past teaming up with art academies, the Israeli Comic Museum, and various freelance artists.
Recently, our Japanese division joined forces with Chiyoda Co., Japan’s biggest shoe store, to create a limited edition of shoe collection, celebrating the 10th anniversary of Chiyoda’s first Shaun Palmer shoe collection.

Shaun Palmer is a professional American snowboarder, skier, mountain biker, and motocross rider, and loves all kinds of extreme sports. He is so well known that PlayStation 2 even developed a Shaun Palmer Pro Snowboarder game! Palmer and Chiyoda Co., have teamed up to launch a number of shoe collections since their first collaboration ten years ago.

Now, FunkKit is joining this collaboration and together offering a special edition of stickers for sneakers all designed by Chase, a freelance artist currently living in L.A. Chase creates colourful artwork that can brighten your day. Past clients of Chase include Adidas and Puma, so he is no stranger to creating shoe-related art, and we love what we see. Great job!
