Custom Awesomeness!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
With computers and online shopping around, seems like it's becoming quite a trend. Still, some of the stuff are really cool. Not much more expensive either.

Customized Vans slip-ons : http://shop.vans.com/webapp/wcs/stor...pperGroup=null

Custom flip-flops: AE

custom O'Neil boardshorts:

Vans used to do a lot of customization from what I read in Sneaker Freaker. you could basically bring in any material and they would do it up for you.

I'm always initially excited by these "custom" programs, but the options always disappoint me in the end. I want to be able to pick any Vans pattern out of the archives and go with that, not pick an upper in a core color/pattern but have slight variations in vamp bindings and heels and whatever.

I'd heard this as well. The story went that surfers would bring in their old board shorts and have them made into the uppers of their new sneakers.

If anyone knows if they still do this, I'd do it in a heart beat. I'll send them in some old plaid or something.
