These custom, one of a kind, hand-painted black high-top Nikes, with bullets around the heel and bright yellow laces, were stolen from FASHION NINJA, a small business in Bay View on Wednesday, October 17, at 3:00 pm.

They want the shoes back. If you see a student wearing them, please contact the authorities or the Bay View High school principle to retrieve the shoes for us. The shoes where stolen by a Bay View High School Student. Fashion Ninja filed a police report with a description.

The artist, Logan Herte, is a 20 year painting major at UWM. His collection — 12 pairs of custom painted shoes and 5 2D paintings — are up at Fashion Ninja for Gallery Night. His collection is priced between $50 -$275.

Logan is taking the show down because he doesn’t feel his work is safe in Bay View. The collection was supposed to be up for 30 days.

Spread the word to help Fashion Ninja retrieve the shoes. The store is accepting contributions to help pay for the loss. “We are really looking for $10 donations from all area business owners, the community and its leaders” says Fashion Ninja owner and operator Areka Ikeler.
