THESE ARE DIY CUSTOMS BY THE HAND OF pillowHeat.
the vans were originally chocolate/khaki (see last pic) however i dyed the suede & canvas black in parts. the medial left jazz stripe was also removed for effect (not included). the tongue remains og colourway. the dye process results in stiffened canvas however will soften over time. the dye has bled through & is visible on the reverse canvas. it is waterproof & will not run.
the shoes themselves were machine washed by previous owner with resulting smooth foxing. it is dry in areas with some stress cracking. the outsole shows pedal impressions from bmx usage. some wear to internal heel counter of left shoe. plenty life left in this rejuvinated form!
