At Handske the relationship with our customers goes beyond just a pair of gloves, or a jersey. Our core focus is to connect with every single one of you in a unique and authentic way. Having a comfortable, performance based, and artistically detailed brand is our main goal and this is why we put so much thought into every design we create. It’s not only a design, it’s a personal bond that you identify with and makes you stand out from the rest.


We are beyond excited to introduce a custom paint cycling shoe program to the Handske family. We could not pass on the opportunity to partner up with Kyle, who has had several years of success in customizing shoes in the lifestyle category. 


With your continued support and feedback, this year we decided to dedicate more of our efforts to full customization and the best way to expand this concept was completing the full kit to further explore creativity. Handske by kdD is ready to take on your creative requests and develop it into the image that represents you. 


How does it work?

In its first year the program will offer two options:

Option 1: pick from the already created seasonal designs. This will range from 2-3 per season. Within this option, pick from 2 choices: Send in your own pair or purchase from the available new shoes (current new shoe availability is limited). Adding a small personalization (I.e. your name) is available at an extra fee.


Option 2: go full custom. In this option you get to create the design. Tell us your ideas and one of art advisors will mock it up with up to two revisions. Within this option the same choices are available: Send in your own pair or purchase from available shoes. 


Although we are currently developing our own line of shoes, for the moment we will work with industry trusted brands such as Specialized and Shimano for new shoe requests, with the goal of offering a Handske shoe in year two of this program.
