Space Jam Roshes

It's often assumed that those who design custom sneakers do so with the end goal of getting hired at a sneaker company. That actually worked for Kelsey Amy, 24, who runs Shme Custom Kicks .

According to Amy's Instagram account, she works for Jordan Brand. What's slightly confusing about Amy's position is that she still runs her custom sneaker business despite being employed by a sneaker brand.
