The 12 Days of Christmas, Day 5
In-house designer and the funniest guy we know, David Clark, has gone crazy for this pair of Dustin Dollin's Project 8 pro model Vans, inspired by the videogame Tony Hawk’s Project 8.
While taking a break from my layout and design programs one day, I stumbled on these beauts and fell in love. I thought, well, well, well, here's another shoe to occupy my every thought, and yep, my pair of Dustin Dollin's Project 8 No Skool model shoes--the artist's third design project for Vans--is all I can think about.
Dollin's design twist and the shoe’s classic Old Skool style are a perfect match, and, since I am a man who knows a thing or two about graphics, let me just say the print on these kicks is pretty much the shut-down.
Bottom line: Every human being needs a pair of these, and you even get the cheat code to unlock Tony Hawk's Project 8 game when you receive the shoe.
The Dustin Dollins Project 8 No Skool shoes are available for $60.00 from Vans.
