Charlie Malta's website guicemann.com

Incoming freshman Charlie Malta (AKA the Guice Mann) got a shout out in the NYLON Guys magazine September issue. The Guice Man creates what the magazine’s writer, Jay Buim, describes as the “best custom sneakers we’ve seen.” The much-loved sneaks start as generic white canvas shoes and are transformed with Malta’s custom artwork. According to the article, he’s created 600 pairs so far. NYLON Guys is  a supplement to NYLON magazine, which focuses on fashion and pop culture.
