Fade of the Day – Samurai Naniwa Special II (13 Months, 2 Soaks)

Fades are like snowflakes – no two pairs are the same. Today’s Fade of the Day features a year old pair of Samurai Naniwa Special II‘s worn and submitted by Thammanoon Ketprapa from Thailand.

Having achieved a significant loss of indigo, they have also taken on a slight green tinge that really stands out in such a blue atmosphere. Pair this with some excellent whiskering, honeycomb action and some solid pocket fades and you’ve got one nice looking pair of jeans. Be sure to keep up with Thammanoon on Instagram.
