In 2011 these “Hard Knocks Wolf” custom shoes by Louie Gong were featured at Juxtapoz.com in association with the Vans Custom Culture arts program. They were among the very first custom shoes that Mockups creator, Louie Gong, designed using Mockups as a 3d template.
“I was able to sketch and re-sketch my design work using colored pencils until I thought the colors and composition were just right. The colored pencil comes really easily with just an eraser,” he said. “Although I was just using an early prototype of Mockups, I knew the product was going to be a big hit because it made everything a lot faster and easier.”
