If you can afford the premade custom Vans I would just do that. I think they will look better, and they will hold up longer than something done with markers.
I would get the ones from Vans.
I’m definitely leaning towards the professional Vans customs, but I can’t find/decide on a picture! I’m thinking a zoa garden or possibly full mixed reef? I played around on the Vans customs page and made this. It needs a little work but they say ‘Saxy Frags’ on the back (since Fraggin was too long) and my sexy shrimp Heather is featured on the toe. The zoa garden pic belongs to JoshPorkSandwich :) $95, which is expensive but not as expensive as some of my other options F9E73CFF-8B90-49C5-A14E-21F74D38D57A.jpeg 203DD080-E07F-4367-B5F6-C2DEAAA82BF4.jpeg A30C168A-DF12-460F-8AA0-F7280C232435.png ACD86162-9FB7-46F4-A8FF-EA13E3CF41C3.png 493067EA-D130-493B-89E8-3CA3769D69F5.png ED7EF985-534A-4C87-B8CC-DA153CC656FC.png

#footgal google custom vans from the 80s and check out the images
I’ve seen em! They’re AWESOME! I’ve participated in the local art car contest for a couple years now and a few of these vans always show up!

So when would y’all like me to start sending out the jacket? I wanna make sure you guys have time to order patches or whatever y’all wanna put on there and I know custom patches take about a month to come in. Should I ship it to the first person in November? That will give us like 4-5 months before any scheduled reef shows which means each person can have a ton of time to be creative with it!

I like the one with the sax for obvious reasons (including the red planet ;)), but I also think it’s probably the easiest to get embroidered. I mean, the leathers would be as well, but #2 is def my fave. Also, on the first, instead of Leather Gang, what about Legion of Leather, or League of Leather? I’m partial to alliteration. Haha.
