Editor’s Notes: The Shoe Surgeon has partnered with The Dr. Brandt Foundation for his latest project, aiming to raise awareness surrounding the importance of mental health. A part of the #SayILoveYou campaign — which is designed to break down the stigmas of mental health through open conversation — the artist presents a new custom sneaker that shares his own personal story in promotion of the initiative.

The Shoe Surgeon chose to utilize a pair of white Air Force 1s as his canvas, then covering the sneaker with handwritten experiences and personal illustrations, detailing his bout with depression and anxiety, and finding a positive way to channel related feelings.

The custom Forces will be available for $1,500 at the #SayILoveYou Speakers Series at Art Basel Miami on December 7, moderated by our own Corey Stokes. Follow here to RSVP for the event.

Now, here are five simple tips to improve your mental health.
