Earlier this year, Marshawn Lynch and his banned gold cleats caused a stir, thanks to the NFL’s threat to toss him from the field if he wore them during gameplay. Though he followed the No Fun League’s ruling, he was still spotted wearing the Midas-touched shoes at NFL warmups, and a host of other players suddenly came through with their own custom kicks (angering the league even more). But where do they get them? From Marcus Rivero, the dude who has at least one pair of custom shoes on nearly every team in the league. Inside his Miami loft, we got a look at his work, his studio, and the ten things he can’t live without

  • Took a stroll back to the 80’s this weekend with the amazing cast of @snowfallfx at their Season 2 premier event in LA. 
Big thank you to the people of @fx for the opportunity, and to everyone who came out to see me work on some custom kicks and hats (a first for me, but def not a last). THANK YOU.

And to the AMAZING and GREAT cast @damsonidris @aminjoseph @luvangelalewis @isaiahkjohn @imalcolmmays thank you for all the love. Looking forward to collabing again soon. 
Also had the unforgettable experience to be able to meet, chat, and do@some custom work for the super talented director @johnsingleton who directs the show not to mention who also did one of the greats #BoyzInTheHood.

  • So humbled and honored to share this photo with ALL of you.

This is my First ever collection at @Nordstrom called WORLD LOVE. I still can’t believe it, even as I type this post, that it’s reality. It’s currently for sale at Nordstrom’s first ever store in New York City, on Columbus Circle. 
12 countries. 
12 flags. 
12 cultures. 
Yet all have one thing in common, LOVE. No matter the way it’s spelled, written, or painted, it’s what in my opinion, unites us all. The world isn’t always the easiest place to live, but I promise you with love all can be fixed. 
This project has been a couple years in the making, and was a really tough one to keep secret. But I did, lol, and now I can share it with you all. So if your in NYC, go check it out, and send me some pictures. And if your lucky enough to buy a pair let me know, I want to send some love your way. Oh and for my people around the world, you can order over the phone ;). #SolesBySir #1of1 #customKicks #WorldLove #Nordstrom #SolesbySirXNordstrom #HiMom #ThankYou #Spain #France #Australia #Brazil #USA #Ireland  #Germany #UnitedKingdom #China #Canada #Russia #Mexico #AllWeNeedIsLove

@adidasbaseball 
Thanks to everyone who reached out yesterday. My late night ice cream craving turned into a food poisoning morning. But I’m back at it (with the help of some antibiotics) getting all my MLB guys ready for the All Star’s futures game and All Star Game.
