Clothes Whores: Enthusiastically examining Kansas City’s sartorial shenanigans
Brandon Laskowski, the 24-year-old designer at the helm of Evolved Footwear, is known within the online-dwelling custom-shoe community as the guy who first brought the light.

“Customizers don’t like giving their secrets away,” Laskowski says, “I don’t want to say exactly what material I use, but I found it online. It’s been around since the ’80s. It was the same material used in Back to the Future Part II to make light-up shoes.”
