If you are painting Vans you’ve likely got some catching up to do with Swaves. Last week he brought out an insane Hermes inspired design and this week he brings out another machine effort all for a good cause like it’s nothin. Waterbomb.org contacted Swaves at the last minute to create a piece to be featured at their event August 24th in Los Angeles. Starting with the typical all white Vans slip on Swaves strictly painted the negative space, the blue, after outlining the Waterbomb pattern in pencil freehand upon the front and heel panels. Custom printed insoles finished off the precise attention to detail.
“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.” -Swaves
