Nike Blazer “Rising Sun” Charity Auction by Fresh&Fly Customs

Desp1 of Fresh and Fly Customs is joining in on the charitable custom shoe effort for Japan relief that was first seen last month when Twitch auctioned off a pair of painted Nike Toki. Twitch’s pair raised a cool $346. Desp1 put together, literally, this complete decon-recon pair inspired by one of Japans iconic images, the Rising Sun flag. The sun and sun beams graphic was actually hand stitched on the back heel tab panels with red stitching on silver leather. The majority of the shoes paneling is made of a black diamond pattern ripstop. The Swooshes were also made of the silver leather which goes perfect with the silver and gray soles he used. For just a bit of color four red eyelets were placed on the top two holes of the lace panels. This pair appears simple at a glance but a close look and you can see the details. Even more amazing is the fact that only a sewing awl was used in the reconstruction process along with some glue. Impressive. Patience.

These are a 1 of 1 design made in size 10.5 that is up for auction here: Fresh and Fly Customs eBay charity auction. Checkout more work at
