It started with love and a pair of SK8-Hi's. This past Valentines Day, I purchased a pair of all-white Van SK8-Hi Slims for my significant other. Originally purchased with the purpose of customizing them for her, the idea for the execution didn't hit me until I put the first brushstroke to them. As I realized that she likes bright colors, I wanted to incorporate that along with other ideas from our relationship. I decided to color-block the outer panels while the inside remained monochrome with the exception of glow in the dark paint. I also painted the toe matte black to add a different feel than all the brightness. The heel strap also has very important detailing with the red, black & green coloring representative of the Pan-African flag and last but not least the glow in the dark heart. Take a look and tell me what you think.
