22 Aug “Slip Into Paris” Vans
I was contacted by @rorygoz recently to adapt an iconic Hermès design onto a pair of pure white Slip On Vans. If I am being honest, the detail work involved had me a little nervous. But I never shy away from a challenge, so I accepted and got to work.
The only paint on this custom was the orange. Meaning that all the paint work was done in negative, around the design. Painting it once was tough. Painting it twice was a “hold your breath and go for it” moment. When painting canvas there is no erasing, or removing paint from the fibers, meaning there is ZERO room for error if the two shoes were to match perfectly. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. The custom printed insoles really give them a finished almost factory look.
