Spike Lee Kickstarter Adds Custom Jordans By Van Monroe

If you weren’t familiar with Spike Lee’s Kickstarter, he is raising funds for his next film.  Current goal is $1,250,000 and people have pleadged $1,014,207 to date (Aug 14th, 2013) with 4,784 backers and 6 days to go.

If you pledge $1000 it will get you 1 of 5 custom designed sneakers by “Van Taylor Monroe”.  If you are unfamiliar with his work you can see his designs here.  He appears to be more of a classic customizer, painting on AF1 canvases, and is definitely more of an artist than a sneaker designer, but his work is nice!
