I think he means like drawn on them to change colors or added your name etc. I tried changing some of the white vapor III's colors with a marker but it looked so bad I threw them away (I got the shoes free). Last time I'll ever customize a shoe!

for example rafael nadal gets his cages with a bull on it and i know that his max 3's had his nadal on the back of his shoe

federer has a different vapor IV then the one on sale. i think its the traction and durability he customizes his shoes based around

those are the two most visble ppl with customized shoes

If you consider adding head tape as a racquet customization, then I definitely customize my shoes by adding a layer of Shoe Goo on the spots of the soles that I typically wear out. Not a repair, but a preventative, as I apply the Shoe Goo to new shoes, and then keep reapplying as needed.

Shoe Goo is like a rubber paste that comes in a tube that looks like a toothpaste tube. There's another similar product, Kiwi Shoe and Boot Repair. Both work the same. You can usually find them in Wal*Mart, Sports Authority, some shoe stores, Walgreens. They are mostly intended for repairs -- you spread a little on the soles of the shoe to fill in holes where you've worn through the rubber, and it dries to a new patch of rubber that will give you some more life in old shoes. But I put it on new shoes right out of the box, on the spots I know I usually wear out. The Goo doesn't last too long, especially on hard courts, so you have to reapply it every other match or so, but if you keep at it, you can make a pair of shoes last a very long time. Usually, I have to replace the inner sole of the shoe before I wear out the sole, and I typically have to throw out my tennis shoes because the upper is falling apart.

I read somewhere that Nike give you shoe customisation when you win your first grand slam.
