If the original Nike Dunk was released 15 to 20 years earlier…some artistic hippie may have souped up their pair like Swaves did for a recent customer. They probably would not have looked this clean though. As a request Swaves was told the customers daughter was into everything hippie themed. Given creative freedom he combined some classic 1960s and 1970s graphics: peace signs, colorful flowers, a rainbow, a smiley face, peace & love. The entirely hand painted placement is near flawless with a classic Volkswagon logo on the back heels along with line work done in orange and white shaped like classic VW Bus front.
This isn’t Swaves first 60s-70s era like design, remember his Beatles Love Nike Dunks? He made a few of those Beatles designs but these hippie Dunks are likely a 1 of 1. If you want some similar custom kicks visit his site here: CustomSwaves.com
“This process was very different from the way I usually plan my customs. My designs are usually meticulously planned out before they are applied to a shoe, but this time (in an attempt to keep the hippie vibe alive) I simply went for it!” – Swaves
