SeanJawn Customz

Level 4

Sean has the ability to restore old sneakers and make them look brand new, but his main focus and passion is around customizing shoes. He uses his own artistic talent to create a design based on his customer’s vision or has been given the freedom to design. Typically he spends 2-8 hours on each pair of shoes. A pair of custom made shoes starts at $60 a pair. Sean’s goal is to have his own shop once he graduates from college. This year he plans to raise money to get the proper equipment (i.e. upgrade motor on spray gun), hire an additional designer and promote his business. He was recently a finalist for the Level 3 Pitch Panel final round at Biogen.
