Our superhero origin story

The concept for Semurai Designs was born in 2006 from two brother’s love of art and sneakers, and the ingenuity to combine them. Jeremy Thompson and Chris Thompson began painting shoes and promoting their art medium in the local Tulsa area. What began as using cheap paint on worn down shoes, has evolved into high quality paint and expertly crafted, one-of-a-kind designs. Supplying everyone from sneakerheads that want to stand out from the crowd to celebrities that want to promote or commemorate their work.

The name “Semurai” itself is a collaboration of the ethnicity and culture that our family shares. Taking the words “Seminole” and “Samurai,” we combine our Native heritage as well as our Japanese ancestry. We are truly a product of the mixing pot that is America.
