[VIDEO] This 20-Year-Old Makes Celebrity Sneakers in His Parents' Bay Ridge, Brooklyn Home

Econn Customs has designed sneakers for some of pop culture's most recognizable influencers -- from 2 Chainz to Justin Timberlake. Yet this hot brand has humble origins: All of Econn Customs' pieces are made by 20-year-old Eric Conner in the spare room of his parents' Brooklyn home. Conner has no formal training in crafting footwear, but like many popular artists of the time, his success is the by-product of today's robust remix culture. Instead of creating sneakers from scratch, he spruces up classic shoes, like Nikes, with pieces of fabric from streetwear darlings, like Supreme and Louis Vuitton.
