In the city where Michael Jordan developed his brand and became the most prolific athlete ever, shoes hold a special place in Chicago's heart.
Fifteen-year-old Liz Spurlock has helped bridge the gap to hockey with the "Blackhawks Shoes" she paints.
The shoe artist built an immediate following and has only gained popularity since. She helps raise money for Bryan Bickell's charity foundation as well as the Ross K. MacNeill Foundation, battling pediatric brain cancer.
For more information on the "Blackhawks Shoes" you can visit Spurlock's Kustom Team Kicks Facebook page.
