Dejesus Custom Footwear, founded by Dillon Dejesus and Christopher Nardi, aims to turn everyday shoes into unique pieces of wearable art that grab attention, spark conversations, and make owners proud to show them off! Every drop of paint is placed with a purpose. Our abstract patterns and designs are meant to tell a story that inspires your soul. For that reason we believe, “Every shoe has a soul. What’s your soul look like?”
Dillon Dejesus, lead artist and founder of Dejesus Customs, has been in the custom sneaker business for the past five years as a solo artist. Dillon’s love and passion for art started early. He enrolled in as many art and design classes as possible,
not sure where he wanted to channel his inner artist. After noticing the social media scene blow up with a multitude of posts on collectible sneakers, he decided to combine his love for art and sneakers. After completing his first pair of
custom airbrushed sneakers in 2011 and posting them, Dillon was bombarded with messages asking how people could get their hands on his shoes. Two years later, Dillon had painted hundreds of shoes, including pairs for famous celebrities and
professional athletes, and decided it was time to pursue his passion full time. You can be assured with Dillon’s expertise and talent, you will own a piece wearable art that is not only unique and beautiful, but also extremely functional.
Christopher Nardi, an Indiana University graduate with a major in economics and mathematics and a minor in business and entrepreneurship, has spent the past five years in sales, customer service, and fashion. Chris and Dillon met at a family party back in 2015 and instantly began exchanging ideas. After collaborating for a while, they decided it was time to bring Dillon’s unique art on collectible sneakers to everyday footwear. Together, we are proud to bring you, Dejesus Custom Footwear.
