Another Fade Friday is upon us folks, and as per usual, we have some top caliber fades for you. These Momotaro x Blue Owl BOM008-T’s come to us from Steve Minard of sunny Costa Mesa, California. After three and a half years, Steve has really created something worth looking at.
Steve rides his bike with his dog, gets down and dirty working on his classic Volkswagen, and generally just wears them everywhere. You can tell that he’s been cycling, especially when you look at the deep honeycombs, the vibrant whiskering and the heavy wear in the rear, all of which took the indigo and faded it to a dull white.
There are definitely areas so worn they gave out, so they’ve already gone through one round of repairs at Indigo Proof, and given the nature of the abuse they’ve taken, they’re back for a second round as we speak. We hope they get some TLC and get back to being worn as soon as possible.
