Steve McQueen "The King of Cool" was a top box-office draw of the 1960s and 1970s. In 1974, he became the highest-paid movie star in the world. He starred in movies like The Sand Pebbles, The Cincinnati Kid, The Thomas Crown Affair and The Getaway. Recently I had a chance to collaborate with a huge Steve McQueen fan to make a custom pair of Converse dedicated to Steve McQueen and his cult classic film Bullitt. The design on these shoes was inspired by the movie posters from the 1968 film. Check out the pics below and let me know what your favorite Steve McQueen movie is in the comments!
I had a lot of fun with this project. These custom Vans were painted for Joshua Piuma and his groomsmen. This has to be the best Groomsmen gift. These guys are world conqourers and have traveled the globe together. Islands they have been to are: Block Island, Sandy Point, Tinsley Island, UK, Hong Kong, Saint Barthelemy and Ko Pha Ngan. We decided for this custom order that putting those islands on the shoes would be the most symbolic of their travels. We spiced it up with some topographical lines coving the shoes. Take a look at the picture below and send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you want want to get your groomsmen styled out.
