What is the way to make custom Jordans?

Individuals who aren't particularly crafty and don't have much time on their hands may want to stick with the NIKEiD feature in order to customize their Jordans.

For truly customized Jordans, however, some time and craftiness is needed in order to carry out the customization project. Those people who choose to paint a plain pair of Jordans will want to assemble materials, such as masking tape, paintbrushes, gloves, acetone to clean the shoes prior to painting and a hair dryer to help set and dry the paint.
