Anyone who has visited our website knows that MAG has painted sneakers for many celebrities. So I'm going to give you the inside scoop right now...
When you think of Will Smith what comes to mind? The Fresh Prince? Or just that he's the biggest star in the universe! I loved him in Independence Day. And I'm always impressed when a rapper crosses over into acting and does it successfully like he did.Well, our first celebrity client was the one and only Will Smith.
We received a call from Akiva Goldsman's (Director) assistant while they were filming I Am Legend. It was Will's birthday and they wanted to give him a cool gift that was one of a kind, so they commissioned us to paint a custom pair of low top chuck taylor converse sneakers for him.
We couldn't believe it. This was the most exciting thing that happened to us so far.
The I Am Legend crew surprised him on the set with our sneakers, his birthday gift. We were so excited. Celebrities can hire anyone and yet they hired us! That defintely got us thinking...if they want our shoes, then who else would?
