Seth Brau's Five Three Footwear specializes in customizing Vans with funkadelic, one-of-a-kind patterns. He starts with a plain white pair of Authentics, Slipons or Chukka Boots; creates the design using fabric markers and sprays them with waterproofing to seal in the color.
A native of La Jolla, CA and student at NYU, Brau does the customization thing for the passion of it. Of course, he's ready to make a buck-- Authentics and Slipons are $100 and Chukka Boots are $180. Contact him directly to specify size, model and color preferences.
