Falsequest "FAQU" x Vans Sk8-Hi customs

Simple, yet well thought out.  This is a solid design from sneaker recon artist Falsequest, another super talented sneaker customizer.  As with most recon artists, materials, as well as subtle changes to an original design can go a long way.  In this case, all of the usual stitching and perforations found on a sk8-hi were deleted for a more sophisticated look, and the entire upper was wrapped in a raw canvas, while the Vans racing stripe has a dual-layered black snakeskin, overlaying a dirty gray denim.  That same denim was also used on the heel piece, where a large embroidering of FAQU was properly placed.  Taking a closer look, you’ll see that the denim was left unwrapped on the edges, to allow fraying over time.  Well thought out.  Pewter eyelets, and black laces finish it off.  These are one off customs most likely for a customer of his, but feel free to drop him an inquiry on his website, if you are interested!
