A Dangerous Thing
The advent of design-your-own stuff online is dangerous when put in then wrong hands, say, mine. It had been a couple years since my last pair of Old Skools and I was itching for some new colors other than the standard blue/white/black, turns out Vans allows you to customize your Old Skools. How cool is that? The HUP contingent agrees that Belgie blue stitching would round out the package but customization has its limits. Doing an all-day studio session today, which is a novel thing. Renting a great studio space and shooting two Olympians, so if it doesn’t turn out great we know whose fault it is. I ate it on my last day of shooting/riding in Tahoe. It was a pretty fast and hard wreck but I landed on sand so had very minimal road rash. But I did go down hard and over the past couple days the bruises have come out and my lower torso now looks like a black-n-blue patchwork. At least the camera wasn’t bruised.
