Allow me to present the world's first 100% 550 parachute cord shoes: a modern reissue of the retro 90's Steve Olson pro model skate shoe formerly manufactured by a now-defunct vintage brand called Kastel. Look at me tryna sound all official lol.
Although I love that this technically makes me a cobbler by trade, so if someone asks me to make them a pair I now get to say I think I can cobble somethin' up for ya. The sole will have square knot tread strips on the bottom as you see in pics #4 & #5, as well as being rubberized like the treads in pic #4. I will also be purchasing an entire bucket of Plasti Dip, instead of just a small tube to dip the soles in, so the rubber coating will come out a lot cleaner than you see in pic #4. And although this listing only says one pair is available, I will NOT be taking it down permanently. At some point I plan to do the OG blue and grey color with a G-Shock watch face on one toe and a Suunto M9 compass on the other.
I WILL ALSO CONSIDER TRADES FOR OTHER RARE VINTAGE SKATE SHOE MODELS FOR MY LIL SKATE SHOESEUM. Particularly an Es One and a Vans Mike Carroll, or anything Duffs and Vision Street Wear. Please don't try to low ball me in these sketchy times.
NOT INCLUDED: the Supra Muska 2000's and copy of Steve's CD shown in pic #5, or any of the original Olson Kastels seen in the last three pics. Every pair does include an extra set of laces in each color of cord used to make this shoe. The item "RARE 550 Sk8 Shoe Reissue Olson Kastel Paracord" is in sale since Sunday, September 20, 2020.
