Sharp020: Denim and Gold Puma Basket

Sneaker customizer Sharp020 out of Florida is calling these a platform for a couple little experiments. Hmmm, what else could Sharp020 have up his sleeve? Of course check back here to see the latest or his site. But as the circle of “decon-recon” customizers is slowly growing by the days so are the crazy designs they coming up with.  Though along those lines of moving forward a bit of simplicity is always nice to see. I guess you could call these simple at least by today’s standards, three years ago these would have been blowing peoples minds.

As for inspiration Sharp020 told us he really wanted a black and gold shoe and a denim shoe both added to his rotation. He used a Puma Suede low top as the base since the Puma Basket high top is pretty much out of production. To make the pattern he used a Puma Basket high top that he had to order from Singapore, so if you want a Puma Basket custom Sharp020 is your guy as he can now make a pair out of nearly endless fabrics using those patterns. The most interesting part of this pair is the fact that the vinyl is vintage from around the 1950s. I imagine its quality is extremely better than something you’d purchase made this year. Hmmm, again I’d can imagine some pretty killer customs made using some vintage fabrics.
