Inspired by his personal addiction to the use of unique material applications in footwear, theMenace, real name Adam, set out to create a truly one of a kind piece to stand as the face of his ‘rebirth” as a recon-artist and aspiring sneaker designer. With utmost focus on craftsmanship, design and functionality this Sk8-Hi is the first of its kind and is just a glimpse of what’s to come from theMenace.
Known as the Blackout Digital Camo SK8-Hi, the shoes feature an upper consisting of black ripstop nylon on the toe, lace panels, heel and tongue, with a reflective 3M digital camo pattern worked throughout the paneling. While the 3M detailing is sure to bring the sneakers to life at night they needed a little pop for the daylight hours, therefore theMenance stitched up a mirror polished chrome fabric to the entire mid-section. To compliment the sneakers and wrap things up black patent leather was included on the stripe across the upper and silver eyelets were wedged into and laced up with black shoelaces.
We defiantly have to give our props to theMenace on this one, as in our opinion this is by far one of his best customs. I could easily see these sitting on the shelves in stores, as an official production model from Vans. If you’re interested in getting a pair you may have a chance as theMeance will be customizing a total of 6 pairs. No more, no less. Once the 6 others are placed that’s it, they’ll never be produced again, so if you wanna put in an order for your size visit theMenance webstore.
