Falsequest: Life and Debt quilted leather Nike Blazer Hi Custom

Happy customers equals happy business. Sneaker customizer Falsequest is relatively new to the posting custom shoe work online scene but obviously not new to actually making customs. He has a mystique about him. We are pretty sure the person behind Falsequest is a male but his general location is unknown. This mystique is somewhat of a throwback to early 2000’s in the online custom shoe world where customizers really did not share details such as where they are from or personal photos. It was hard to put a face or personality behind one’s custom work, but of course that changed with the emergence of the whole social media explosion in MySpace, Facebook, YouTube and personal blogs. Falsequest has let his work do all the talking so far. Now even one of Falsequest’s customers was so happy he gave an extremely detailed explanation of the entire project. You can read it yourself HERE, but its clear Falsequest is doing at least few things correct.

The design of the custom Nike Blazer Hi is similar to one of Falsequest’s previous designs of a custom Nike Blazer low. Made with the same “decon-recon” process as all of Falsquests customs we have seen so far. This time using light gray leather with the custom quilted stitching for the majority of the upper. The customer has an affection for the “Life and Debt” track by Seattle, Washington based MC duo Blue Scholars so the back heel tabs say “Life” and “Debt” in a detailed cutout lettering over black snakeskin that accents the maroon outline black snakeskin Swooshes. Oh, do I really even have to mention the laser engraved tongue tags and custom tagged black knapsack? Falsequest is slowly becoming a “mantra” for high quality custom shoes.
