A major headline that had the streetwear industry gasping in surprise was Original Fake announcing its final season of production. Since 2006, the infamous KAWS emblem has been a mainstay in high-end streetwear, going beyond apparel and into the amazing figurines in collaboration with Medicom Toy while partnering up with several brands in the process. In this latest custom by Dank Customs, a proper tribute is paid to the now closed Original Fake label, featuring the KAWS logo on the heel, the double-X baseball stitch detail on the toe, and a special teeth-inspired tongue label detailing the brand’s legendary run from 2006 to 2013. The Black/Volt is a nice throwback to KAWS’ collaboration with Nike in the past as well! We’ve got a full gallery of this amazing custom below, so take a look and let us know what you think.
