  • Had the amazing opportunity to make some cool family inspired customs for @therealbcraw35 . I also was able to make his wife @jalynnecrawford a couple cool glitter pairs.

  • My fellow @columbushs_miami alum, @showtimealmonte rocking his 1of1’s for @mlb Players Weekend.

He wanted to pay tribute to his roots in Allapatah and the Phantoms, which is his father youth baseball team. To make it even more meaningful, we added all of the little leaguers names on there.

  • Here’s one for all my Colombian followers.

Please help me welcome @urshela10 to the 1of1 familia.

We went with the Colombian flag on one shoe, while then going with the Cartagena flag on the other while sprinkling in some names of some family members.

  • When @yunitogurriel and I were game planning this pair, he gave me free reign to do me. He wanted to make sure the the two logos of the teams he played for in Cuba made it on there.

So i started spraying and decided it was only right to use the 3D diamond pattern in the back of the cleat to make a cool textured Piña (pineapple), since he goes by “Piña Power”. When I say this year’s #PlayersWeekend cleats are going to be Wild, I’m probably under selling it.

  • I’m honored to welcome “MR. 91” aka @vladdyjr27 to the 1of1 family.

Was a big fan of his dad @supervlad27 growing up so to be able to collab on a couple pairs this weekend, was super cool.

Im predicting 2 HOMERUNS these weekend.
