How Brushedbysophh's Soph and Casey Beres 'Brush' Every Pair of Custom Sneakers With Love

Soph and Casey Beres aren't just close sisters—they're also entrepreneurs and business partners who've made quite a name for themselves with the viral online art shop, Brushedbysophh.

Brushedbysophh offers fully customizable pieces, from sneakers to clothing and more, skillfully painted by hand and "brushed" with love, so that every item they personalize is one-of-a-kind and of the highest possible quality. The brand was born out of Soph's disappointment with a pair of "custom" art sneakers that actually just used cheap stickers, with Soph deciding that if she was going to get the high-standard results she wanted, she'd have to do it herself. From there, she made her first pair of customs, and the rest is history. We had the pleasure of chatting with the duo to learn more about the brand and its history, and they shared it all with us in the interview below.
