Custom Converse Chuck Taylor ‘Parra’ ($210)

Wind back the clock a bit. Last year, in a sneaker collaboration with the well-known Dutch artist Pieter Janssen, better known as Parra, came one of the most special Air Max 1 projects in recent memory. 2018’s Nike Air Max 1 Parra was one of the most demanded Air Max models of recent years.

In this week’s Sneaker of the Week, customizer Wasecustoms shares a design inspired by those original game-changing shoes. Designing with the Converse Chuck Taylor as a base, Wasecustoms brings back the design elements of the Air Max in a new, joyful way.

Wasecustoms combines disparate designs of black polka dots, white and grey stripes, dreamy cloud whites and sky blues, and candy-cane pinks into a single sneaker. With it, Wasecustoms captures the wonder and creativity of the original Dutch artist that has been storming the modern art world.

Finishing the look, the sneakers sport a midsole referencing Off-White, with “Parra” written in bold black. In the true quality of customizers, Wasecustoms’ creative re-imagination is painted in durable, scratch-resistant Angelus paints.
