What Is Custom Made
Some might say that customization of sneakers, streetwear and other high-end products
is a trend that started in the ’80s by the fashion mogul Dapper Dan.
From 1982 until it closed in 1992,
Dapper Dan’s Boutique on 125th street in Harlem
churned out gear that has come to define the custom era.
Dan customized gear for New York’s Hip-Hop elite such as
RUN DMC, Public Enemy, Fat Boys and many more.
Seeing successful collaborations between brands such as Supreme and Louis Vuitton,
we at FITINK believe that the visionary Dan was 30 years ahead of his time.
Whereas Dapper Dan introduced luxury to the streets,
Marc Jacob aimed to bring Louis Vuitton into the lives of young people.
FITINK aims to bring the best of both worlds, by customizing and producing high-quality street fashion.
The customization trend is rapidly growing in USA, UK and Asia.
It is just a matter of time before Europe catches on.
What are sneaker CUSTOM-FIT's?
Sneaker customs is a unique trend where you customize your sneakers. Think of it as getting a tattoo but rather on your sneakers.
At FITINK we offer exclusive CUSTOM-FIT sneakers that echo the personality of the wearer.
What are sneaker PRE-MADE's?
What is the 1of1 policy?
Customized sneakers and clothing is an up and coming trend in Scandinavia and the rest of the world. The purpose of customizing is to show the identity of the wearer by a personal expression through various customized processes.
At FITINK we strive for originality. This means that all of our customs are intended to be one of a kind – and we call this our 1of1 policy.
*Note that our Pre-Made section is intended to inspire you as a customer of our quality and to give you a price estimation of a particular design. This means that we are not intending to duplicate designs and you will be contacted by our designing team within 24 hours of your order. All of our customs are customized for a singular customer. Our designers put every ounce of care into the customs because they know that there are dozens of meanings and hours of thought before our clients commit their trust, time, and finances to us. Our mission is to offer 1of1 sneaker to every single customer that orders from FITINK.
How do I order a custom pair of sneakers, and what does REQUEST mean?
As customizing sneakers is a time-consuming process, we prioritize original custom ideas rather than something that is not as creative. By offering request invoices, instead of direct purchases, we believe that we are taking the necessary responsibility of custom culture and its market.
