Courtney assisted me on an engagement shoot tonight and I couldn’t help but notice her rad DIY’d shoes. At the end of our set, and with some sunlight left, we went to the park for photos. Courtney told me about the contest and I couldn’t have been happier to help photograph her shoes.
She basically tie-dyed white canvas Vans with three colors. It’s a simple concept, so we’re surprised the company hasn’t done this before. Courtney said she wore them into a Vans store and the employees couldn’t get enough. Neither can her friends. She’s got orders coming out her ears and, well, for a 16-year-old that’s a pretty high overhead. The only solution? Vans needs to make these shoes!
Would you rock tie-dyed Vans? I know I would. My biggest dilemma would be the color combination. I love the yellow, green and blue, but am also a fan of Rasta colors. What colors would you like to see Vans produce?
