My super creative friends, Lily and Jordan, got married a couple years ago and Jordan made the dopest groomsmen gifts of all time: customized kicks. He bought a bunch of vans, then hand-painted them with inside jokes and random stuff for his friends. I think it turned out pretty awesome.
That's immediately what I thought of when I saw these bad boys:
Stylist, Robert Verdii asked Vans to make some custom ones for him out of some vintage Hermes scarves. The result? The dopest Vans I've ever seen.
