The San Antonio artist who created the buzzworthy Selena sneakers last week is wowing again with a design that has a shoe-in on the Fiesta fashion competition and celebrates the chicken on a stick and Fiesta cup-stacking obsession.
Juan Garcia, of J3 Customs, created art on a pair of Vans slip-on shoes featuring the two favorites. The shoes were made for returning customer Jorge Bernal, who also commissioned Garcia to create the popular Selena design.
In addition to creating a perfect Fiesta feet look, Garcia added a pigment to the paint that creates a color-changing effect that occurs when the shoes are either above or below 72 degrees. When the temperature is below 72 degrees, the shoes are purple. Above, they are pink.
The Fiesta and Selena looks are the latest of Garcia’s Alamo City-centric inventory. He has also created Spurs and UTSA-themed kicks.
A design like the one created for Bernal would be $125, if the client provides the shoes.
