How cool are your sneaks? Creative artist and storyteller Akio Evans uses innovative fashion approaches to transform sneakers into a new art form. He began his career by creating custom sneaks for The Wire actor, Felicia Pearson (Snoop) and hasn’t slowed down since. Akio’s commissioned sneaker art has been collected by Donnell Rawlings, Dave Chappelle, Dr. Dre, Nick Cannon, Kevin Hart, Havoc of Mobb Deep, Tyronn Lue, and Allen Iverson among others.
