Mellow Music Vans Authentic Organic
The customer who ordered these Vans chose to incorporate her musical interests, as well as ideas of peace onto her shoes. It turned out to be perfect for these Vans in particular because this is a pair from their Organic Line, composed of 90% post consumer recycled material. The music of Jack Johnson, and John Mayer are mostly songs about love, which tie into the whole love-peace-earth theme of these shoes. I decided to shoot these photos outside in celebration of these ideas, and also the upcoming spring. On the fronts of the shoes are John Mayer and Jack Johnson. The abstract forms behind their faces are loosely based off of some of Jack Johnson's cover art. The sides of the shoes are also adapted versions of Jack Johnson's cover art. On the back of the shoes are two peace signs, and the insides contain a quote that the customer decided to put on the shoes. These shoes are a great example of how a good, coherent theme, along with personal concepts (such as the quote) can make awesome custom shoes.
