Making kicks for the Pope
One artist who makes custom kicks is getting a once and a lifetime chance to make a custom pair of high-tops, for Pope Francis.
Billy Hobbs, an artist from Kentucky, was asked to paint a pair of Nike blazers yellow and white, to represent the papal flag and to add the pope’s coat of arms.
It’s safe to say the pope was happy with his gift.
The pope joins other celebrities like Paul McCartney and Snoop Dogg to Hobbs’ impressive list of clients.
